What can I say about Cheryl, she was my work mom, my ear to bend about anything and everything, she was the first person to train me when I moved positions 10 plus years ago, and welcomed me with open arms, she would make sure I ate lunch; at times even bringing it for me, and she was my biggest cheerleader at work, but most importantly she was my friend and she was one of a kind and I am a better person for knowing her.

She LOVED my kids and had a special bond with my son Cole her "smash buddy". (When he visited work, she would sit on the floor and play legos with him. Smashing all the towers they built.)
You are already missed. Rest In peace, love you.

Cheryl was an amazing woman and what a remarkable life. I feel so blessed that I got to know her. We worked together for many years. She was always upbeat, she made me laugh and all the while she was going through so much. She was a good and generous person. I know you will miss her deeply. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.”
Celebrating the life of a good woman and mourning her passing with you.
Cheryl touched so many lives for the good. I’m grateful I had the chance to know her as both a colleague and a cherished friend.
God bless you Cheryl. May you rest in peace with the angels and saints.

My deepest condolences to the Ellard/Gilbert families.
I was blessed to have worked with Cheryl many years ago at the Dept. of Revenue. She was a wonderful person with such a upbeat personality. She will be missed but never forgotten.

I worked with Cheryl for many years at the bank. We were like sisters and the same age. I loved it when she would sing to her favorite songs on the radio while she was working. She was generous, hilarious a great friend and a fighter. She is already missed and will always be missed tremendously by everyone who knew her. Kevin we all love you too! Rest in peace my friend until we meet again!
Love Diane

I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could find the right words to bring your family some comfort but I don’t think there are any. Cheryl was a kind and gentle soul, always a good word, a smile. She loved her job and the people she worked with but most of all she loved her family. You were the reason she lasted as long as she did. She suffered much and was so brave. I know the angels have wrapped her in their wings…She will never be forgotten… forever in our hearts. The O'Neill's

So sorry for your loss my deepest condolences to your whole family. William Weaver is an employee of mine and has been my longest entrusted employee and I just wanted to express my deepest condolences. William always referred to Cheryl as only auntie. I know how close the two of them were and I'm sure she will be sorely missed.

When we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that Cheryl’s loved ones have an angel to watch over us.
I, AKA work husband, extend my most sincere condolences to all of you. As Kevin said, this is not a good bye, we will see each other. Cheryl! We will see you in the future.
