Cheryl Lynn Taft
"Tremendous Woman"
Cheryl Lynn Taft passed away on Monday, May 5, 2014. She left us too early due to complications from ALS. This insidious disease never kept her bright spirit and loving heart down. She carried on joyfully with her responsibilities as a loving mother and friend until she could no longer breathe on her own. Her humor, wit, and love never ceased to stop. Her love and faith in God carried her through. She was a devote believer in Jesus Christ as her personal Savior, and she knew she would be restored whole again through Him.
She accomplished raising all of her kids to be great adults while helping her husband to be a successful businessman, and to become a better person. She has touched many hearts with her generosity and kind words.
She is survived by her husband Larry Taft; her four beautiful kids: Jeremy Taft, Jennifer Taft-Bailey, Mandy Taft, Adam Taft; her six wonderful grandchildren; her mother Beverly Jones; and her brother Mark Jones.
Our thanks to the MDA and the University of Utah Neuroscience Department. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the MDA for ALS support.
Cheryl requested that no formal services be held.
