Chapel Hill

It is with great sadness that the family of Cheryl Doster Meyer announces her passing after a lengthy struggle with breast cancer, on Friday, September 7, 2018, at the age of 61 years. Cheryl will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 32 years, Andrew Meyer, her son Jeffrey Meyer of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, her stepchildren Jon and his wife Ginny Meyer of Raleigh and Kim Meyer of Chapel Hill, and her grandchildren, David and Nicholas Meyer of Raleigh. Cheryl was the daughter of Paul Doster (deceased) and Sarah Doster of Charlotte. Cheryl will be lovingly remembered by her four siblings, Patricia Murphy of Raleigh, Paul Lester Doster, Jr. of Charlotte, Kay Kirby of Chapel Hill, and Ruth Hills of Rutherfordton.

Cheryl Meyer was a graduate of Queens College of Charlotte and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She worked as a nurse for many years at Duke University. Cheryl was a kind, compassionate, generous person. She contributed her time to many charitable organizations in the community, including the Chapel Hill Service League and Meals on Wheels. She played competitive tennis, was a master gardener, loved to read, and was a gourmet cook. One of the highlights of her athletic career was biking the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway. She sadly passed away at too young an age and will be missed by all who knew her.

A memorial and celebration of her life will be held on Thursday, October 4th at 2:00 PM, followed by a reception at the Doris Duke Center in Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Durham, NC. Please inform the family if you plan to attend.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Duke Cancer Institute Breast Cancers Fund.
