Cheryl graduated from Gettysburg High School as part of the class of 1963 and retired from Gettysburg College, after over 43 years of service working as a secretary.  She was a member of American Legion Post 14 in Hanover and the Hanover Moose Lodge 227.  Cheryl found being outdoors very peaceful and often sat on her porch enjoying nature.  She always surrounded herself with pets of all kinds and loved spending time with her family.  She liked going on vacation and her favorites were going to the beach in Ocean City, MD and visiting Gatlinburg, TN with her parents.  Cheryl was always having a good time and laughing.  She enjoyed playing Bingo and cards, most especially Rummy, and listening and singing along to her favorite music, Old Country.  Cheryl’s memory will live on with her friends and family.
