The quote Cheri gave me while I was going thru a trying time is, 'you will always be an example to others, whether good or bad it's up to you '. Not a week goes by that I don't think of that quote and try to live by it. She was a wonderful mentor and friend.

Cheri was my supervisor for 10 plus years. she was an amazing women, she cared so deeply about family. She always worked so hard and was an inspiration to all that she meet. My heart is broken for all of her kids, grandchildren and Luther, her kids and grandchildren where what made her world go around. She will be missed and loved forever. As hard as it was to lose her, I have no doubt that she was smiling that big smile of hers when she saw her momma and daddy again in heaven.

Cheri was such a special lady and such a beautiful addition to our family. She was the kindest, most thoughtful, sweetest person we ever met. She was so good with the kids, sitting with them doing crafts, playing the violin for them and showing them all the flowers in her garden. Though our hearts are broken and ours tears flow with our loss, we are so happy for Cheri that she will now enjoy the fullness of the grace and love of her Savior. She will always be loved and remembered.

Dixie, Doug & Drew - I don’t possess the words to tell you how sad your mom’s passing makes me. I am so very sorry for your loss. We went to high school together and I have such fond memories of shared activities during those years. I was so happy to reconnect at Monaghan Baptist Church and to have the opportunity to make more memories. She and Dixie also played at my daughter’s wedding. (Erin Clark). Your mom was such a gentle and beautiful soul. Her smile would light the room. I know you will miss her terribly. My prayers are with you in the days to come.
Carol Culbertson left a message on May 25, 2021:
What a shock to learn of this! What a kind, kind woman she was and I am forever grateful our paths crossed. She was my “roomy” for my very first Mission Trip with Monaghan and she amazed me with her skill set while we worked on our project for the week. She was so beautiful always but I think at Dixie’s wedding, she was stunning! I had great admiration for her and my heart goes out to all of you as you grieve her presence here.
Steve and Teresa Clayton left a message on May 25, 2021:
It has been many years since we have seen each other (our loss) but we always have the highest regard for Cheri, a true Saint. She will remain in our hearts as she moves on to Heaven and her Great Reward. “Well done good and faithful servant” With enduring love, Steve and Teresa Clayton and family
AJ Fakoornejad left a message on May 25, 2021:
Cheri had a huge heart and spoke with such sincerity. I’ll always remember one day when Drew and I got a frisbee or ball stuck on the roof. She opened the window and spoke so softly and politely stating that it was time for dinner and to go home. She said it with love in a way that no one else could. She was truly special.
Caroline left a message on May 25, 2021:
