Known for her bright smiles and kind heart, her life’s passion was to encourage others and help them feel happy. She loved to share her funny life stories, especially  about fishing with her daddy along the bayous. Fishing, was her hobby of choice. She always kept her fishing gear, in the trunk of her car, “just in case she came across a good fishing hole.” Cheri never missed an opportunity to dance, being the first and last on the dance floor or just doing a little jig while housecleaning to the music of ZZ Top. Cheri will be remembered for her happy spirit and kind heart. She was everybody’s best friend and will be dearly missed. At her request, no services will be held, but she made it known that, she wanted us all to share a laugh and raise a glass in celebration of her journey home. Her Facebook Page will remain open and all are welcome to post memories and final words to her. Her family invites you to celebrate Cheri’s life by donating to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, jdrf.org.
