I am greatly saddened to learn of Cheryl's death. We worked together in the New Hampshire consultant dietitian group and she was such an inspiration professionally and fun to be with. My condolences to her family.

Cheryl was a wonderful wife to my brother, Bob, and a great sister-in-law to me! I have such cherished memories of Thanksgivings at Cheryl and Bob's house. I will miss Cheryl and her cooking. She was a fabulous cook who combined delicious with healthy. Cheryl will live on in many ways, one of them being through her recipes. May she be at peace!
