Cheryl Dawn was many things to many people, but first and foremost, she was a born again Christian, and her faith in Christ showed in everything she touched to do. She was never scared of hard work, and did her share of it in this life. Cheryl knew that if you wanted something bad enough, it was worth reaching for. When she put her mind to something, it was going to be accomplished, for she was never a quitter. Even as a child , Cheryl had a heart of gold. As she grew older and dedicated her life wholeheartedly to Jesus Christ, that part of her never changed and it became very evident early on in her life that she truly had a servants heart as the Bible speaks of. She loved to be of a help to others. She had many jobs in her life, but she truly loved the last one that the Lord himself had blessed her with, a Senior Counselor at North County School District, Bonne Terre, MO., helping young adults ready to spring out into life and college. She also loved beautiful sunsets on the water, and God had blessed her in the last few years with a place to do just that. She was wonderful mother to her two children Claira and Gabriel. Cheryl's Godly influence on her children established a firm foundation in their lives. Claira and Gabriel are two incredibly smart, talented and loving people who reflect their mothers beauty. In addition to being a wonderful mother, Cheryl was an excellent seamstress, cook, Baker, artist, photographer, gardener, and as of the last two years, she had taken up wood etching. She even restored and recreated old pieces of furniture. She was an amazing daughter, and one we will sadly miss, but she is Heavens gain and one day we shall see her again.
