Cherry was always a hard-working woman, as well as a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was cherished by all that were blessed to know her. ย On January 1, 1993, Cherry married Robert Sanders. This January will be 30 years of marriage. During retirement, Cherry enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. She loved to spoil them every chance she got. Their favorite times with her were her pancake breakfasts, always getting a surprise from Walmart, and their special trips to the movies. She shared her love of reading and her very special recipes with her loved ones. It turns out after all these years the secret ingredient in Cherryโ€™s Lemon Cheesecake, was her love.
