Cheryl had a very kind soul; she would make friends easily no matter what kind of background they had. She would often refer to her younger co-workers as her adopted children and she would help them in any way she could, on or off the job. She will be missed deeply by all those who were lucky enough to have had her in their lives. She enjoyed sewing, Facebook, and loved all animals
