Cheryl is survived by many horses, dogs, cats, chickens and bees.
Cheryl was born September 20, 1957 in Willard, Ohio and died peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on February 6, 2021. She lived in Chagrin Falls for the past 27 years and prior to that she spent 8 years in Racine, Wisconsin. She graduated from Willard High School in 1975 and Wittenberg University in 1979. At Wittenberg she earned a degree in Health and Physical Education, was a cheerleader and met her husband.
Cheryl operated her own business working as a fitness instructor for her loved seniors at Orange Senior Center. She partnered with her husband and children to start and build a successful business, Nature’s Way Bird Products, manufacturing wild bird feeders. She was a member of the Ohio Horseman’s Club, Riders Express 4H, the City of Orange Senior Center and Ohio Beekeepers. She enjoyed riding horses, gardening, cooking and baking, beekeeping, and sewing. Above all, she enjoyed spending time with her family and making sure they were all happy and fulfilled.
Chery is remembered as a devoted wife and partner, a loving mother, and an unforgettable grandmother. She taught her family to enjoy the outdoors, how to care for plants and animals, and how to swim. Above all, she showed us how to be comfortable simply being yourself. She was a nurturer of passions, giving her children the confidence to pursue what they loved and whose own passion was to find the ways to help others smile.
In lieu of flowers, and in the memory of Cheryl, her wish would be for you to share a home-cooked meal with family, where you give thanks for one another and share stories of Cheryl. Cremation by DeJohn Crematory. Family will receive friends to pay tribute to and celebrate the life of Cheryl at THE DeJOHN FUNERAL HOME & CELEBRATIONS CENTER OF CHESTERLAND 12811 CHILLICOTHE ROAD (Rt. 306, just south of Mayfield Rd.)
