As was her nature, she remained strong willed and strong minded to her last moments. She is dearly loved and sadly missed by her loving husband Jack, daughters Tera, Tanya and Amanda, son in law John Zarb and by her three grandchildren Jesse, Jaxson and Jayden. She will be loved and remembered always by her closest childhood friend Debbie Murray and her husband Roger Wakeland. Cheryl was one of six children of the late Bud Burton and Diane Last, who are together known as "The Burton 8". She is survived by siblings Kelly Burton (Lynn), Dale Burton (Nancy), Tommy Burton (Carla), Daryl Burton (Maureen) and Candice Burton. Cheryl leaves behind a legacy of kindness and care felt by all who knew her, the reach of her arms was long and always welcoming for those near and in need.

So very sorry for your loss. Having re-connected with Cheryl these last few years on FB gave us the opportunity to share her joy in her grandchildren. She was always my big cousin whom I was always very fond of. The love she showed her mom (auntie Diane) was beautiful during auntie’s last years. I wish we would have made the reunion we spoke about happen. Hugs and love to you all.
