Cheryl Ann Wherley

Cheryl Ann Wherley, 56, died Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at her home in Cavalier with family. Memorial service will be held Wednesday, June 15, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. at the Askew Funeral Home, Cavalier, ND. Visitation will be held for one hour before the time of the service.

Cheryl was born June 6, 1966, in Williston, ND, to Niel and Elizabeth (Hopkins) Wherley, where she grew up.

Cheryl worked as a CNA for many years, her kind heart and love for helping others made it a rewarding career for her. She had a contagious laugh that always brought a smile to anyone’s face that was with her. She was a free spirit and loved anything that involved adventure, her most favorite was skydiving. She also enjoyed camping, 4-wheeling, riding her bike and playing Bingo. On her days off she would relax to a good Lifetime movie or kick back with her favorite tv show Supernatural. She loved to shop, especially for purses and shoes. Boxes were always coming in the mail to greet her. She had a great love for animals; her dogs Storm and Buster would always be by her side. She adored her grandchildren and spent every moment she could with them.

Cheryl is survived by her companion of 20 years, Stuart Gieger; four children: McCody Myhre, Corey Strauss (Christina Novak), Colby Strauss, and Cole Strauss; sisters: Donner Closser, Rose Wherley, Karen Hieb, and brother, Neil Wherley; three grandchildren: Samara, Asher, and Luka, along with several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Elizabeth Hopkins Wherley; her dad, Neil Wherley; stepfather, Jerry Hendrickson; aunt, Dolly Hopkins and uncle, Dru Hopkins; niece, Lauren Helt and her beloved dog, Stormy.

I was so sad to hear of Cheryl's passing! She had a light that shown very brightly to anyone that met her. I am glad that I was able to express to Cheryl a few years ago how much her loving personality & care of my grandma meant to her...and to me. We actually teared up together over it! she's truly a good person! I hear a certain Billy Joel song in my head!! Hugs & Prayers are sent to Stuart and all of Cheryl's loved ones. God bless you & keep you safe!

Stuart and all of Cheryl's family, We are so deeply sorry to hear of Cheryl's passing. She was a friendly, kind, loving soul. And I know that from the conversations I had with her. She was one of my mom's favorite CNA's during her short stay at Wedgewood. Jerry & I send our heartfelt sympathy to Chery's loved ones and hope it gives some comfort to know she will be missed by many.
