Cheryl, you were one of my very best friends through Junior High and High School. We had the best times playing baseball at Warwick park with the gang and just forming great memories as teenagers in our youth. We always kept in touch in some manner. You were one of the most intelligent, kind, humble and loyal persons whom I have ever known. I just recently got back in touch with you on Facebook and it was you that sent me the picture below of the "fearsome foursome". I just got word of your passing from other friends (from our loyal friend group ) back in Michigan. You will be sorely missed as you touched the hearts of so many people. RIP forever Cheryl. Love always, Carole Shoemaker Evans, aka "Shoes"

I did not know Cheryl, but she was one of my Mom’s best friends in high school (the OTHER Sheryl :) ) I’ve heard wonderful stories and can picture only but beautiful memories. I pray that everyone can live out the rest of their lives with the beautiful thoughts and memories that my Mom has when she has talked about all of their amazing times.

Cheryl & I enjoyed spending our Saturday mornings together working out at the Rec Center, doing one of our favorite activities— cardio drumming. As founding members of The Livonia Beat, we attended many community events together & enjoyed volunteering our time to promote health, fitness & movement in the community. The Livonia Beat proudly credits Cheryl for creation & maintenance of our group’s energetic & informative website.
I will truly miss Cheryl’s sense of humor & her modest, practical perspective. She was kind, humble, honest & trustworthy. I’ve been blessed to call Cheryl a friend for 2-years now, and my only regret is that her untimely demise didn’t give us another 20 together. Rest In Peace, my friend. You will be missed. ❤️

Cheryl was in my Saturday morning Cardio drumming class the past two years, as well as one of the founding members of The Livonia Beat. Cheryl was kind and humble, and she also had a great sense of humor. Cheryl volunteered to make and maintain a website for The Livonia Beat. She was an active participant and volunteered much of her time to share music and smiles with others. She will be greatly missed.

Jerry and I were so pleased to spend time with Cher and Aunt Margaret at Brendan’s graduation party. Such a happy occasion. Cher was her usual happy and optimistic self. She will be sadly missed.

I knew Cheryl from Zumba class. She and I both enjoyed staying in the back/middle of the room, so naturally we danced near each other and would always say hi. Cheryl was so kind and I really enjoyed having class with her. I am so sad to hear of her passing, and my thoughts are with the family and other loved ones.
