She helped with the county fair and the county 4-H project judging day each year.
She loved to cook and bake for her family and friends. She was known for her mini bunt cakes that she would make each year to be sold at the St. Mary’s School Auction. She loved to craft and enjoyed sewing and doing plastic canvases.
Cheryl was an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenville. She attended the church craft group and was active with the Rosary Alter Society and the annual Holiday Bazaar. She enjoyed helping with the BBQ Chicken Dinners and the Fish Fries with the Greenville Knights of Columbus. She liked to help and volunteer at St. Mary’s Catholic School.
