  1. Cheryl was my best friend and confidant during my two years at Central High School and for many years thereafter. I can remember as though it was yesterday standing up for her when she got married and going with her to the doctor when she found out she was pregnant with Rhonda. How proud she has always been of her two children. She was also my Maid of Honor two times! We shared many tears but more laughter and great times in many places including Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Denver and Omaha, Nebraska. I have fond memories of our many ski vacations. I feel privileged to have had so many beautiful and wonderful women in my life and Cheryl is among the best. We kept meaning to spend more time together and we always planned for her to come out to California for a visit but we never seemed to be able to make it happen. Regardless, we could talk for hours on the phone to catch up and the years melted away. She was always the first person I called and tried to see, next to my family, when I visited Pueblo. Cheryl was a devoted mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. I am so saddened by her passing and I offer my warmest thoughts and condolences to all those who loved her. She will be greatly missed.

  2. What a beautiful person! So full of life and enthusiasm! I have known Cheryl for many years and always found her to be positive and fun, and also very grounded and sincere. We shared a love of dance and I have many memories of good times together. She was upbeat even at the end, and was so happy to see me and say that she was ok and even though life is short, she felt she had lived a good and happy life. She told me of her faith in the Lord and knew where she was going. I am so proud of her strength. Blessings to all her family who meant so much to her.

    Cheryl was my best friend from the first day we met at Central. She was a true friend that you could always depend on. Cheryl loved her children and grandchildren. Every time we got together it was like we were never apart. Our friendship was a lasting one. She was a good daughter always helping her mom from the time she was very young. I will truly miss her. My deepest love and condolences to her family. God has a new Angel.

  4. From the time I interviewed Cheryl for a secretarial position at the Transportation Test Center in 1972, we became lasting friends. We shared some good times, worked through a few hardships. Was so proud of her when she decided to return to school to get a nursing degree. Ronda and Kevin, she loved you so very much. I never got to meet the grandchildren but I know she loved them also. She was fun to be around and a very caring person.
    . She went on to a successful career as a psychiatric RN at the State Hospital (Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo). We had not been in contact for the last several years, and I’m so saddened to learn of her passing. I will remember her forever and cherish the memories built over the years.

  5. I knew Cheryl when I was in college in Pueblo and she was a sophomore at Central High. I have nothing but the best memories of her. She was a great friend with an outgoing, fun-loving personality who was devoted to her family. I have not lived in Pueblo for nearly fifty years, but have often thought of Cheryl. I was saddened to read of her passing. She will be missed. My condolences to all of the family.

  6. I knew Cheryl as one of the outstanding kids in our class of 1965. With her outgoing cheerful attitude and personal beauty, it was clear to see she was bound for a happy life on this planet. Reading about her large family and working profession shows what a giving person she was as well. Happy to have known her but sad to see that she has moved on so early in life.
