Cheryl will be greatly missed by the Potma’s in Belmont and Dorchester. Every year when Cheryl visited her dear daughter, Shelley and son in law, Arnold and her 5 grandsons we all made sure to spend time together with all of us. Great memories! She was the most loving, caring mom, grandma and friend. We loved her dearly and will always remain in our hearts. We pray for comfort in this time of great loss.

Love and prayers, Jerry and Joanne Potma, Dorchester, Ontario.

Although, I haven’t seen Cheryl for a number of years, Cheryl & I were best of friends and our children, Randy & Sandy had the same babysitter in Wetaskiwin and Cheryl & I worked together. What fun we had. Although, we drifted apart it seems, I never ever forgot Cheryl, Ralph & the kids. Still have those fond memories & always will.

I have so many great memories of Cheryl, she was a wonderful person who I already miss dearly. She was always there to listen to my teenage angst and discuss my feelings. She was like a second mom to me while growing up. I remember camping trips with the whole Traub/Funk families. I remember tons of card games. I remember going to her house after the tornado and having a tornado party. Most of all I remember her warm heart and loving nature. Cheryl I already miss you! You were a huge part of my life and I know you and my mom/Gail are somewhere catching up on all the gossip.
