Cheryl Gray
Dec. 3, 1939 - May 9, 2014
Resident of Pleasanton
Cheryl Marie Gray, loving mother, devoted teacher and loyal friend died surrounded by her family on Friday, May 9, 2014. Born to Osborne and Emma Goudey in 1939, Cheryl grew up in Los Angeles and attended UCLA where she met Michael Gray. They were married in 1960 and raised their children in Milpitas and Pleasanton, enjoying over 35 years together before his death in 1996.
Cheryl was a teacher, reading specialist and administrator in the Milpitas School District for 30 years. She had a remarkable way of bringing many people together and was actively involved in the Tulancingo Sister City association as well as several garden clubs, golf groups, and church ministries.
Her deep faith and her family were the true center of Cheryl's life. Nothing made Nana happier than to have her family gathered around her dining table or on the patio next to her rose garden. She will be deeply missed by her four children, Michael, Patti, Tom and Matthew, their spouses, and her eight grandchildren, Eric, Matthew, Emma, Jonathan, Katie, Carolina, Sarah and Daniel. Her example of how to live fully and love unconditionally will endure.
A vigil will be held at 7:30pm on Tuesday, May 13 followed by a funeral mass and reception at 10:30am on May 14 at St. Augustine's Church, 3999 Bernal Ave., Pleasanton. Donations in Cheryl's memory can be made to Hope Hospice; 6377 Clark Ave., Suite 100, Dublin CA 94568.
