Cheryl Ann Nagel

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the loss of the heart of our family. Cheryl Nagel, my love, my life, and my soul has left this life behind. Cheryl was a brilliant person that made everyone feel welcome and glad to be around her exciting, warm and gracious personality. She taught everyone she met how to live, be alive, and survive, even though tragedy struck her family down in what should have been the best years of her life. Those who know her understand her grace and courage to stand against those that flout the rules of humanity, kindness, and gentleness. She was a gentle soul that had a daughter Lindsey unjustly taken from her, and then a grandson Rico taken from her. Her heart was broken, but her grace held us together as she fought against the vanity, the profane, and the selfishness of the human condition.  Cheryl, Lindsey, and Rico counted for so many people.  Cheryl lived the life we all should strive to live, full of wonder, innocence, hope, and finally love…

Dear Steve and loved ones. Cheryl was a diamond and one of my favorite patients of all time. I recently wrote her an email to see if she would meet with another person so she could share her hearing journey and her experience with the cochlear implant. I am so thankful that I knew Cheryl. I loved visiting with her and seeing her and was looking forward to seeing her again, her smiling face and warm accepting presence, after COVID! She will live on in my heart and all those that knew her. I will miss her. I will plant a tree for her as well! Love and light! Kim (Her Audiologist)

Cheryl was such a beautiful person, never complained about anything, always happy with a smile on her face. A memorial in honor of Cheryl was sent to the Susan Komen Cancer in remembrance of her. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Steve my heart goes out to you, stay strong all my love. Betty

I have had the great fortune of being Cheryls uncle for a too short time. From the day she came home as an infant to my last conversation, there was just something between us. When Cheryl said Uncle Darrel my heart was touched inexplicably. From all I know, her world was dominated by friends and her family who felt this magic. Im going to miss those times until eternity. No expression of sorrow can alleviate your pain, Steve, My brother Duane, Pam and the rest of the family. Only God can. He said He would and he will. My memory of Cheryl will be forever jostled by a magnificent Golden Honey Locust I planted in my yard this summer. Its the Cheryl Tree
