Cherrill was born in Sebastopol, but reared and educated in Petaluma, graduating from Petaluma High School in 1947. She married Stan on June 11, 1950 in Petaluma and together they enjoyed 46 years of marriage. She worked as a bookkeeper for many years at the Argus Courier. In her spare time, Cherrill enjoyed gardening, sewing, and being a "Mom" to all. She had an uncanny knack for turning strangers into friends in short order. Her love for others was exemplified by her generous spirit...always room for another chair at the table. She will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of spending time with her.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Petaluma, 416 Payran St., Petaluma, CA 94952. Private Inurnment. Family assisted by Parent-Sorensen Mortuary.
