Cheryl Anne (nee Schaufert)

After an 18 month battle with cancer, Cheryl passed away peacefully, with her husband and children at her side, on the morning of Sunday October 15, 2006 at the MSA Hospital.

Cheryl was born March 2, 1948 in Abbotsford, BC, where she continued to live for most of her life, raising her children, and working for over 18 years at Lilydale.
