My dear, dear friend. So many memories of our adventures . Pistons basketball in the nosebleed section. Driving to a braves basketball in a blinding snow storm. Watching you chop wood for a campfire when we camped at Harrisville. Baking a thousand cookies at Christmas time and we cleared $30.00. My kids and niece loved you like you were family. And that’s what you were. Our “Dorie” never figured out why they called you that. Rest In Peace my friend you deserve it. I’ll see you around the corner.❤️❤️

From the first day I met you and heard that laugh, I knew you were someone special. You always kept a smile on your face and were always ready with a funny story. Now I’m sure you’re making the angels in heaven laugh with all your great stories. You will be missed!! Laugh with the angels 👼 my friend!!

I am so very sad to hear of your passing Cheri! You were a kind, caring, selfless, loving lady! Thank you for the countless days & nights you watched my 2 boys, thank you for always helping me with all the kids in my home daycare (that all loved you!), and thank you for always helping me with things around the house, anything I needed you'd come right over to get me through it. Thank you especially for coming over at 11 pm on a cold, snowy December night to help me pick up my too tall & too heavy Christmas tree off the floor (your laugh when you saw it had fallen completely over was priceless!) Your were a champion of life! You will be sorely missed and were loved by so many! I will miss chatting with you at Walmart!! RIP dear Cheri. My sincere condolences to you Keith, and all the family.

To my friend Sherrieeee. ( With a French accent ) whenever I saw her I would always say her name that way so she knew it was me. Her strength not seeming to let life get her down inspired me, along with her self reliance.
— James Barnes
Rest in peace my friend. You were such a beautiful soul and I know God will be proud to have you by his side. Now you will get to see all the beautiful things that you couldn't see down here! I will miss you and your fantastic attitude and humor.
RIP Cheri

Well Cheri, we have talked about these days coming, and here we are. We've been friends for 30 years. The fun and laughter we had was amazing. There were so many memories I can't list them all. We had great times and laughed through all of them. Your laughter made anything we were going through so much better. You will be missed by all! Until then my friend......
