Cheryl was born on January 31, 1958, in Des Moines, Iowa. Married the love of her life Danny Edward Thomlinson (Bug) October 18, 1974, for 48 years. They resided in Altoona and had 2 children Allen and Nicole.
Cheryl was a bright star who brightened up a room for all who entered. Gave to anyone in need and put her full heart into everything she did. Her family, pets and friends were the joy of her life. Small but fierce and feisty, loved huge and with all her might. Cheryl was always concerned for the happiness and joy of others.
Cheryl’s personality entertained her family and friends with the quirky things that she would say and do. Her creativity was beyond measure for decorating. Her home was the hub for family gatherings. Never missed going to the Iowa State Fair every year to get her first corndog. Her favorite vacation destination was Walt Disney World and she made it to her bucket list, Hawaii.
Cheryl is survived by her husband, Dan Thomlinson; son Allen (Lisa) Thomlinson, daughter Nicole (Travis) Leaming, grandchildren Kalob (Natalija) Westercamp, Breanna and Dray Leaming, Michael (Alyssa) Drabek, Danny and Jeffrey Thomlinson, great-granddaughters Olivia Westercamp and Ivy Thomlinson.
“May her light continue to guide us all and give us comfort.”
