Cheryl grew up in Clute, Texas and graduated from Brazoswood High School in 1973. She moved to Louisiana soon after, where she attended LSU and became a dedicated employee of AT&T for many years. Cheryl was always the smartest person in the room. She devoted much of her life to child care, her natural calling. She was a loving grandmother, avid reader, exceptional cook and dear friend to many. She loved singing the old hymns at church and when memories were fading, she could still recall them.
