I am broken hearted at the loss of my colleague and more importantly my friend of 45 years. I never dreamed that when I spoke with you last week it would be for the last time. Cheryl you will be missed by everyone who’s life you touched including me, but I have many wonderful memories that I will think of often. Rest In Peace my Friend. Love you Marcia

I was so happy to see you last Xmas. You will never know how much you influenced me. As a young (almost new) lawyer your kindness and devotion to our vulnerable clients rubbed off on me. I am a different man as a result of meeting you. Dermot.

Cheryl, you are going to be missed so very much. Always a joy and a pleasure to speak to and visit. You and my mom spent everyday of your illness together and you would find laughter and beauty everywhere possible. Love always and forever Beth, Kaylin and Carson

To Sharon and Gail and all the Clark cousins of Cheryl. Rick and I are very sad to learn of Cheryl’s passing as she was definitely a ‘cousin’ and friend through the years. Many memories of summer vacation visits and times of celebrations in Mount Forest and in Galt. A long history binding our families - we were privileged to know her!

A message to the Clark cousins. We think about you as we remember the many wonderful family times especially the Carsom reunions. Cheryl was there for her mother, Joy, to be with her to celebrate her 100th birthday in her own home. We know from our sister Helen Knisley Wilton, that Cheryl was the main support for Dawn and Glenn in their time of need. Hopefully someone will pick a few flowers from Cheryl's lovely garden to place on her grave.

Cheryl, we remember many times that our families spent together, especially at our annual Carson reunions. We remember that you were there for your mother Joy, to be present for her to stay in her own home to celebrate her 100th birthday. Helen Knisley Wilton supported you as you supported Dawn and her husband Glenn in their time of need. Hopefully someone will pluck a few flowers from your wonderful garden and place them on your graveside. Our thoughts to all your Clark cousins. ( Adel Knisley Francis)
