Our sissy was very dedicated to her family and friends. Her loved ones always came first. Cheryl made sure family get-togethers happened, never knowing a stranger, everyone was always welcome.
Her pride joy was her son BJ and grandson Justin. She always loved her grandma time!
Country music played a huge role in Cheryl's life. Singing, dancing and collecting old country music and beautiful quilts. Always a camera in hand, she cherished her photos. Never empty handed, she loved to give gifts to her family and friends. Cheryl touched the lives of many. She had huge heart of gold, always wanting to share it with you. Making you smile and laugh was the highlight of her day! She was a true diamond in the ruff.
Cheryl will be deeply missed by her son BJ and hsi wife Maddy and grandson Justin. Brothers: Gene Potter, Jeff Potter, Nick Potter, John Riley, Michael Riley and Jimmy Riley. Sisters: Betty Harter, June Thompson, Linda Thomas, Vickie Oglesbee, Donna Geissel and Janie Lesko and all of her extended family.
