I worked with Cheryl. She was a great person. We shared lots of laughs, and she made work fun. She will be missed.

I was so shocked to hear about Cheryl when I spoke to my aunt today. I am so sorry for your loss. Although I only knew Cheryl for a short period of time as a child while living with my Aunt Georgia, she was a good friend. I remember our walks around the neighborhood and visits to the skating rink and dime store. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Cheryl was such a delightful lady and we were so lucky to have her work with our daughter Teresa at Safe Haven Farms. She truly cared for our kids and felt like family to us. When she was injured in an accident and could no longer work, she would still come to visit the kids in house two. She came to the birthday parties and special occasion dinners we had. On occasion she would take them to her church for a dinner or a special program. A very special lady that has been taken much much too soon. We loved you and will always remember your sweet smile. I feel you will still be watching over our kids and loving them Prayers that the boys and your husband can find peace in knowing you touched so many hearts and made lives better. You certainly made our families lives better Rest In Peace Cheryl, the Blevins family loved you and will always remember how very caring you were.

Cheryl came to work with me in the 80s. She came to our church with me where she was married to Daniel by Rev. Ron Stambaugh who was my husband. We worked together along time at Mazer Corp. She was such a wonderful Christian young lady. I know she is loved and she loved her family. I got to meet up with her on Facebook after a long time not seeing her. It's there she shared so much to me. I thank God I got to be her friend even if it was long distance. Now she's with her dad. God bless you'll be missed so much.
