Cheryl Cullen Of Montague

Our Loving Lord called our sweet Cheryl home to be with Him and "my Mom" on May 5, 2015. Cheryl was the daughter of her most devoted and loving parents, Don and Nina Cullen. Special sister to Donna and Bill, Tom and Kristie, John and Tanya, Christopher and Deanna. Cheryl cherished being an Aunt and Great-Aunt to Jenna, Eric, Cullen, Stephanie, Jeremy, David, Ryan, Steph, Sam, Spencer, Jordan, Ashley, Morgan, Tate, and Steve. Precious niece to Lois Ekstrand, Jack and Joan Cullen, cousin and friend to many whom she loved dearly. Cheryl was born February "two six". Cheryl attended kindergarten at Montague Public Schools in the classrooms of progressive and dedicated teachers, Ruth Kowalski and Francis Ingalls, to whom both included her in their General Ed Kindergarten classrooms long before Special Ed 94-142 was enacted. Cheryl loved school and continued her education at Wesley School, participating in the local, state and International Special Olympics. Cheryl won numerous ribbons and trophies to which she was extremely proud. After graduating from Wesley School, Cheryl moved into the work force of Goodwill Industries of Muskegon, where her favorite boss, Marva taught her many job skills. She attended the Annual Wesley School Proms, dancing all night long with friends...thank you Tom Schalk. Upon retiring after 30 years of working, Cheryl moved into her "own apartment" at Day Spring Assisted Living Center and attended Day Break Adult Activity Programs daily with friends and with the support from and the attentive caring, and professional help of friends Susan Griswold, Karen, Anne, Bonnie, Patti, Brian, Lyle, Kim and Deb; the Day Spring Staff, Ms. Cindi and staff and Hospice.

Cheryl was confirmed in her faith by Rev. Lorne Ruhl, with her memory verse, God is Love, and was a communicant member of St. James Lutheran Church, to which the family thanks Rev. John Brooks for monthly communion, prayers and visits. Cheryl appreciated cards and gifts to which she always proclaimed "my favorite"! Those remembrances were from family and friends, her church family, Mike and Maryann, Turtlellen, Beck, Doris and she especially enjoyed the Sunday afternoon visits from Papa and her dog, Ruby. Cheryl had a wonderful full life, and we're sure she is "happy" with all those waiting for her in Heaven. We, her family, thank God. Mom always said, "We can all learn a lot from Cheryl!" And, we did...remember to be kind, always say thank you, accept everyone, celebrate Christmas for a month, sing, dance, and be happy, pray before eating, do your best, eat ice cream, say your bedtime prayers, party on your birthday, and above your matter what. Cheryl modeled and did them all here on Earth with us. Although Cheryl took "a teeny bit" of each of our hearts with her, she left us with so much more and we will celebrate again with her "whole family" will "huggie" her in Heaven!

The Celebration of Life Service was Saturday, May 9, 2015, at St. James Lutheran Church in Montague. Memorials with thanks to "Gifts of Love" (Contact Donna) or to Harbor Hospice.
