Cherie was so pleasant and helpful. I wasn't from this area but I felt close to Cherie because we both went through chemo for breast cancer close to the same time. We were both concerned for each other as we went through that. She will be missed by many

To the Loucks and Almaroad family: My heart goes out to you in the passing of Cherie. Growing up living behind each other as young kids, makes it seem like I've just always known her and she always had such a bubbly way about her, always happy. She will be missed. You are all in my thoughts prayers.
