Known to many as Mimi, Cheryl spent the last decade of her life caring for her grandchildren, who were the apple of her eye. Her love for them was boundless, and she found immense joy in their company. She was a beacon of warmth and love, and her home was always filled with laughter, delicious food, and endless stories.

Cheryl's passion for cooking was well-known among her family and friends. She loved to serve people with passion, and her dishes were a testament to her love for her family and friends.

An adventurer at heart, Cheryl was happiest when camping with her family and exploring the great outdoors.

She had a determined spirit and was known for her ability to plan anything with expertise. Her meticulous nature and attention to detail made her the go-to person for planning family events and gatherings.
