Davis, Carly Bemusdaffer and Zoe Bemusdaffer both of MD; sister, Christine Pare` and her husband, John of Ellington, CT; brothers, Morrie Ahern and his wife, Christine of Sommers, CT and Kevin Ahern of Stafford, CT; nieces, Jenny, Dani, Meg, and Lisa; nephew, Sean; and by all her friends at Shirley’s V-Bar.

To know Cheryl is to know of her love she shared with everyone she came in contact with, her smile and her wisdom. You could count of her to cheer you up and make you laugh when needed. She will be remembered for always going out of her way to help people the best she could and for her solid encouraging voice when you needed guidance in life.

    My condolences to the family and loved ones of my friend Cheryl. Though I only knew her for a few years, it felt like much longer. I will miss sitting in the sun talking & listening to music with her, hearing all her wonderful stories about RJ and seeing that big smile on her face.
    I love you Cheryl, “thank you for being a friend”! GG
