Elizabeth Cheryl Hall was born October 27, 1959 in Columbus, Georgia to Robert Micklebury Hall, III and Joan French Hall. Cheryl attended schools in Columbus, graduating from Hardaway High School in 1977. She went on to Converse College where she earned her Bachelor degree in Accounting and became a Licensed Certified Public Accountant. Following graduation, Cheryl moved to Columbia, South Carolina where she became the senior auditor at Clarkson, Harden, & Gantt, CPA. In 1983, Cheryl moved on to work as an Assistant Controller for Colite Industries, Inc. In 1986, Cheryl became a partner of McDowell-Pearman, LLC where she continued her work until 2020.

Throughout her life, Cheryl was a devoted Christian, attending church at Trenholm Road United Methodist Church, Shandon Baptist Church, and Crossings Community Church in Columbia, SC. She was involved in the choir, The Singing Christmas Tree, and various Bible studies, as well as serving as a Sunday School Teacher and volunteer coordinator. She was a positive, loyal, encouraging, and nurturing friend and mother. Cheryl lived a life exuding love for those she was close to but also those she had just met. She loved attending sporting events and performances to cheer on her daughters and loved to spend time with her closest friends eating out, attending musicals, and visiting local markets. Cheryl loved spending time outdoors, especially on her back porch, and gardening in her free time.

Our family will miss Cheryl tremendously. As our family CPA for many years, she taught all of us so much about keeping good records and guiding us patiently and professionally through filing our tax returns. She was a friend to all of us as well. We mourn her passing right alongside you in spirit. – The Sprott Family

My heart aches for Cheryl's family and the McDowell Pearman family. I feel blessed to have known Cheryl for over 25 years as our agency CPA and as a friend. Cheryl was always ready with patient professional assistance and advice when we needed it for the business. She also became a true friend to me sharing concerns, celebrations and prayers. She loved her daughters to depth of her heart and her family meant the world to her as well as her faith. I feel blessed to have known her and call her a friend.
