Cheryle "Cheri" Scheckler (nee' Boyd/Scholz), born December 17, 1956 in Blue Island, IL, gained her wings after a brief battle with lung cancer at the age of 64 on the morning of November 12, 2021.
Cheri was many things to many people, a mother, partner, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend. She had an artistic spirit which was sprinkled throughout everything she did. She loved to travel, cook, a glass of Chardonnay, live music, and dancing with her friends. She and her husband of 14 years, Rob, decided to flee the bitter North for the warmth of Florida. Unfortunately, their ability to enjoy a life of pool side lounging was cut short by a diagnosis of cancer in July of 2021. Despite the efforts of her doctors the cancer proved too aggressive, she passed away with her daughter, best friend, and husband by her side.
Cheri is survived by her husband Robert Scheckler, Daughter Lynzi Scholz, Son Andy (Amy) Scholz, Grandchildren Zachary, Izabelle, Natalie, and Lily. Brother David (Jan) Boyd, Sister Stacey (Mark) Martin, and Stepchildren Danny, Justin (Jamie), and Katie (Anthony), as well as nieces, nephews, many cousins and friends. She is preceded in death by her mother Ruth Shuga (nee' Barnes) and father James Boyd.
A celebration of life gathering will be held in Chicago in March of 2022. Details will be announced closer to the date.
