Cheryl was born in Dallas, Texas on January 8, 1945 to Jasper Bennett and Ruby Lucille Brown Cherry. She came to Denison at the age of six weeks and was raised by her grandmother, Ollie Brown.

She had a tender and loving heart for elderly folks, animals and children. She did volunteer work as a music leader at various nursing homes in the area, especially Homestead of Denison. Her goal in life was to serve the Lord and make people laugh. Singing specials at her church, East Baptist, and making crafts for her church and friends was a joy for her. She also loved to collect Elvis memorabilia.
