Cherie went to join her beloved father Bob in Heaven on New Year’s Day at the age of 67. Cherished daughter of Betty (the late Bob) Leidal. Loving mother of Justin Finn, Jordon Brooks, and Jason Finn. She leaves behind her much loved brother Michael (Cathaleen). She was very close to her aunts and uncles; Shirley Hart, Verline Passmore, Mary Lou, Bill Leidal, Sue and Don Leidal. She dearly loved her niece and nephews Kelli, Ryan, Brendon, and Connor Leidal. She had a special place in her heart for her two lifetime friends who were like sisters to her, Lynn Franks and Joyce Lamon. She also leaves behind her many cousins whom she adored. Cherie was a social worker first, then became a teacher. She loved everyone, especially little children. She lit up a room when she walked in. She had such an upbeat, vibrant personality that everyone responded to and loved her. Although she had many problems with her health she was always willing to help others anyway she could. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Michigan Humane Society or Holy Cross Lutheran Church.
