I have known Cheryl in many situations: a fellow MT student at KU; as a co-worker at Milwaukee County Behavioral Health: and as a friend over the many years since then. She was smart, witty, talented, full of fun and sometimes, mischief. She had more challenges in life than many people could survive. She adapted, made the most of them, with unusual resilience. She always made friends along the way, which helped sustain her. Hers was a life well lived.
