I worked with Cheryl in the film library at st. Vincent for a couple years and interacted with her afterwards when I worked in Radiology as a tech. She was a very sweet lady and taught me while I worked with her in the film library. She was always nice and hardworking. This is sad news and my condolences to her whole family. Heaven gained an angel for sure.

I have known Mrs. Jones for decades now. I can say every time I saw her she always had a beautiful, infectious smile. I have been best friends w her beautiful daughter, Kendra since we were in hs. I can't pick out one memory rather all the memories of her just always having the biggest smile on her face.. such a kind woman. The Jones family is in my prayers! RIP🙏🙏
