Condolences to the family. Chere was a friend and classmate at MacDonald College.

Chere was a great friend at MacDonald College in the 60s. She was a bright light to all her friends. Sincere sympathies to her family.

Chère enjoyed living her life to the fullest, loved the beauty in nature, and adored her friends and family. We will miss her so much.

Terry and Family, You have my deepest sympathy. Chere was such a lovely, warm person who always made me smile. She left the world a better place in so many ways.

Thinking of you, Terry and your family as you celebrate Chere's life and accomplishments. Her work on distance education and evaluation was cutting edge and paved the way for providing quality distance education opportunities. She was a special lady with a unique laugh! Always upbeat and willing to lend a helping hand. She will be missed.

So many special memories of Chere. She made a difference.

She was a giant. A true pioneer. I am so very sorry for your great loss, Terry. My condolences to you and your family.

Terry and family, my condolences to you. Chère was one of our first instructors in MEPP, our first UW-Madison online engineering degree that started up in 1999. She was a delight to work with.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Chere was a driving force in my early days of working at UW-Madison. On a particularly rough day, I remember her taking me on one of her fast walks around the block telling me, don't EVER let them see you cry. I always did my best fearing another fast walk! I will miss her but I will never forget her. My condolences...
