Cheryl was a member of Wood Lake Methodist Church. She loved to garden and work in her flower beds. Cheryl was a loving, strong-willed woman who could give great advice but never boasted with an “I told ya so.” She took great pride in her family and loved to spend time with them, even if it was just sitting and watching television together.

Preceding Cheryl in death were her grandparents; and father, Orville Rolfing.
