Cheryl Lee Mills passed away on Saturday October 19, 2019. She was born in Port Huron, Michigan on May 27, 1948 to the late Christopher and Bonnie (Nicholson) Sayer. Cheryl married Richard C. Mills on January 20, 1968. Cheryl fought a courageous battle with breast and bone cancer for almost 9 years. Today we know she is finally out of pain and in the presence of the Lord.

Cheryl loved the beach and Florida living. She was an avid pie baker, much to the delight of all those who knew her. She loved her family, love to catalog shop and counter cross-stitch. Her dogs were her fur babies. She loved to travel and loved cruising the Caribbean.

Cheryl is survived by her husband, Richard, her sons Jeffrey (Naydia) Mills and Andrew (Melody) Mills. Cheryl is also survived by 5 grandchildren: Silas, Benjamin, Madelyn, Ellie and Mason Mills. She is honored and remembered by her mother Bonnie, her sister Julie Loshaw, her brother Jim Sayer, brothers in law Jim (Lynda) Mills and Tom (Debbie) Mills as well as her nephews Chris Loshaw, Chris and Paul Mills, Nathan Marone, and her nieces Wendi Langley, Kerrin Kostelic and Kaitlin Lee.
