Cherrie lived life to the fullest and could always be seen with a smile on her face. She was a kind and loving person who was thankful for her many blessings. Cherrie will be remembered as a person of strong will, who loved people and showed kindness, compassion, charity and hospitality to all.
Cherrie was a Chef extraordinaire, an eclectic collector of antiques, an avid gardener, a voracious reader, a talented singer and budding pianist.
