At the age of 35 she welcomed her only child Jordyn into the world. Above all else she cherished being a mother the most. In 2006, Cheryl decided to build a home for herself and her daughter Jordyn. As a single mother, Cheryl wanted to provide the best for her family and though some challenges, she always provided.

Her love for travel sparked an interest in perusing a career as a flight attendant but aside from l traveling her hobbies included interior design, gardening, & 2 stepping to country music which led her to meeting her current partner Tony Legato, where they shared 8 plus years together. Cheryl had great friends and shared many memories. She was God loving, beautiful, and caring. She respected everyone and was a rock for many. Cheryl will be dearly missed by all that new and loved her.
