    Ms. Margaret’s 108 years of life exemplified that of a true Christian woman. A life of sharing, giving, service, praise and love. Always with that beautiful smile, it was a joy to be in her presence. We will miss her loving spirit.

    Pernell and Barbara, may God continue to comfort the Cherry Family during these moments. Mrs. Cherry was a very kind and sweet person. I remember her from my childhood when my parents would take me to Liberty Park’s Nursery School
