Cheri was wholeheartedly invested in the health and betterment of her sisters and brother, nieces and nephews. Cheri liked to cook, bake, sew and play her games on her computer. Cheri’s favorite times were when the family got together and she could see all the kids playing and spending time with her sisters and brother playing games. Cheri especially loved Christmas time because of the snow and her favorite movies, It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street but only the original black and white version. Cheri also loved the Hallmark Channel and her crime stories.
