Cheryl will forever be remembered for her unwavering strength, courage and tenacity.
She was a gentle matriarch to all of those she took under her wing, providing guidance, fashion advice, a healthy dose of tough love and her fearless mama bear like protection.
She lived her life for others and her generosity and selflessness knew no bounds. To her family she was an angel that walked among them.
Loving wife and soulmate of Ed for over 44 years; cherished mother of Rae and Christine; adored grandmother of Romi, Gibson, Idris and Noam; and mother-in-law to Shai and Gabriel.
Cheryl is survived by her mother Pauline; siblings Jenny, Joe, Paul, and Shawn; and she was sister-in-law to Terry, Rhonda, Clarke, Carol, Sheila and Michelle.
She will also be dearly missed by her nieces and nephews and many friends she made throughout her life.
The family wishes to extend its heartfelt gratitude to the caring and compassionate staff of Princess Margaret Hospital and have requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in Cheryl's name.
A graveside service will be held at THORNTON CEMETERY and FUNERAL CENTRE, 1200 Thornton Road North, Oshawa, (South of Taunton Road and off of Dryden Blvd, 905-579-6787) on Saturday September 26th at 11 am.
However, due to COVID-19, attendance is limited. If attending, please wear something that reminds you of Cheryl.
