Cheryl Smith, age 74, went home to be with the Lord on October 1, 2020 at her home. Born in Alliance, Ohio, she graduated from Carrollton High School in 1964 where she was a proud member of the marching band and made lifelong friendships. Cheryl resided in Louisville and was a member of Mineral City United Methodist Church. She was employed with The Waterford and St. Luke Lutheran Community, retiring in 2013. She also enjoyed participating in plays and volunteering for many years at the North Canton Playhouse. Cheryl enjoyed taking walks with her beloved husband and loyal dog, Buster. She loved being near the water and taking trips with her “Island Girls”. Her favorite thing to do was spend time with family. She could be seen on the sidelines of her grandchildrens’ sporting events for every game. Cheryl loved being with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Family meant everything to her and she meant everything to them. She will be missed beyond words.
