She welcomed several missionaries, students, and friends into her home and always did it with a smile and kind words. Her love of animals made her transition to the Howard farm easy. Her favorite responsibility was to feed the calves and move them throughout the farm. Unbelievably they would respond to her voice and the sound of the ATV as she regularly rode through the fields. She loved to travel with her husband; together they had many memorable adventures.
Cheryl was a double transplant recipient having complications from childhood diabetes. Those who were privileged to know Cheryl knew that she was one of a kind. Throughout her life she had multiple surgeries, hospitalizations, and set-backs that required her team of many doctors to become an integral part of her life. Although she had to overcome many struggles, she was so much more than her illness. Her life was dedicated to serving God through helping others. She was always positive, upbeat and focused on bringing others to Christ.
