Few things made her happier than her family and her children. Cheryl always put the needs of others above her own, and loved making those around her happy. She loved gardening and would spend hours transforming her backyard into a beautiful oasis. She loved literature and poetry, especially works by Carl Sandburg and Robert Frost. She enjoyed antiquing and repurposing old furniture and household items, always turning junk into treasure. Her culinary talents were amazing. She could produce an entire 4 course meal from an empty pantry, and her ‘Corn Casserole’ recipe has been requested hundreds of times. She was a phenomenal cook and loved to share meals with friends. Any beach, anywhere was Cheryl’s favorite place to be. She looked most forward to her beach trips with dear friends Sloan & Janice Barrow, where they would camp and fish for King Mackerel. Cheryl lived for SEC College Football. Munson and the Georgia Bulldogs were her favorite, and she rarely missed a game. Cheryl was the heartbeat of our lives, and she will be greatly missed.
