Cheryl Elaine Lively Sigler

August 7, 1947 - February 15, 2024

Cheryl Elaine Lively Sigler, 76, of Beaumont, died Thursday, February 15, 2024, at Christus Southeast Texas-St. Elizabeth, Beaumont. She was born on August 7, 1947, to Doris Bergeron Lively and William H. Lively, Jr., in Houston.

Cheryl loved people and never met a stranger and made friends of people throughout Southeast Texas.  Her love of beautiful things and art is something she took great joy in.  She loved textures and colors and took pride in picking out the perfect thing for her family members and precious friends. She loved running into her former students from Port Neches Groves High School. So many times, we heard them express how she was their favorite teacher and how loved she was. Aunt Cheryl as she was called by her nieces and nephews and all their friends could always be counted on to be there cheering them on in whatever event them and their friends were involved in.  Always with a tiny gift bag in hand.  Also left to miss her is her precious rescue pooch Jazz.

Survivors include her husband, Joseph M. Sigler; brothers, William H. Lively III and his wife, Kay, of Woodville; Craig R. Lively and his wife, Donna, of Beaumont; and Dennis N. Lively and his wife, Nancy, of Orange; nieces, Candice Ford and her husband, Hamilton, of Orange; Lisa Lively of League City; Leslie Cunningham and her husband, Carl, of Woodville; and Lindsey Walleck and her husband, Phil and Amanda Pratt and her husband, Jon, all of Florida; and numerous great-nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents.

    We were so sorry to hear of Cheryl’s passing. Our sympathies are with you, Joe, and all of her family. She was a friend from my youth at 4th Avenue Baptist Church and through the decades that followed. She always had a smile and a happy lilting laugh that made everyone feel special. We were blessed to have known her. Your friends Joyce and Farrell

    I had Cheryl as my English teacher my junior year. She was phenomenal! I absolutely loved her. When I began my teaching career at PN-G, it was wonderful to have familiar faces like hers to encourage and support me in my educational career. I am saddened to hear of her passing and that I was unaware of this until after the visitation. I am so happy that I saw her a little over a year ago at the high school during the vigil we had for a student that had passed away. So grateful we took a picture together. She was still so kind and asked all the questions about me, my career, and my children. What a wonderful woman she was. Prayers for all of her family during this time. I know she will be greatly missed. May she rest in peace.

    Ms. Sigler was my Spanish I teacher when I was a sophomore. It may have been her first year as a teacher. She was a beautiful lady and a great instructor. Many of the phrases learned in that first Spanish class have stuck with me throughout the years. I’m sorry to hear of her passing.
