Cheryl Louise Sylva was born in Huntington Park, CA on September 6, 1949. She lived in Southern California before moving to Gardnerville ,NV in 1993 to be with her mom, Betty, and her brother, Terry. On February 14, 2020 the Lord took her home where she is now reunited with her mom and dad. Cheryl was 70 years old, and her place of residence was Carson City, NV.
Cheryl was preceded in death by her mother, Betty Johnston, and her father, James Flavin. She is survived by her two daughters Christine Louise Scheib-Payne of South Lake Tahoe, CA and Diana Marie Drinkard Wilkinson (Daniel) of Carson City, NV, and her brother, Terry Swearington, of Gardnerville, NV along with her six grandchildren Amanda Roe (Jeremy) of Antlers, Okla, Jessica Morgan (Chad) of Oklahoma City, Okla, Dewey Payne (Mykka) of Bridge Creek, Okla, Ryan Davis of Oklahoma City, Okla, Gary Dillishaw Jr of Carson City, NV, and Jason Dillishaw of Carson City, NV, and her 10 great-grandkids whom all reside in Oklahoma.
Cheryl was a beautiful, loving, caring mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She enjoyed spending time with her two daughters going to yard sales, casinos, going out for lunch or dinner, or just hanging out and visiting talking about all of her stories - but the most cherished moment of her life was her going to Hawaii twice with her daughters, son-in-law, and her two grand boy's - Diana's boys. She said she had the time of her life and was so thankful and grateful that she was able to go.
Cheryl would often visit with her brother, Terry, or talk to him on the phone. She also enjoyed the company of her best friend, Harry, where they would visit at her place, watch Netflix, and occasionally she would cook Harry dinner. She also enjoyed going to the movie theatre because she said it made her feel young at heart again.
