As a child she was introduced to God at an early age and she knew him well. Her love for him always came first. She was a member of Good Shepherd Church, where she loved to sing and honor God. She would sing for anyone because it put joy in her soul, and she wanted to pass that joy on. Cherrie had a love for people that shined through her giving spirit. If she knew you needed it, she would do everything in her power to make sure you had it, because her heart was as enormous as her spirit. She was one of seven children, she was a daughter, sister, aunt, mother, grandmother and friend. But more than anything she was a diligent child of God who will surely be missed.
