    Cheryl and I met through her work with the Library. She loved to get people reading. I can remember her excitement when we started offering digital materials, so that we could reach to people anywhere in the county. I will miss her support and kindness.

    To the Morgan Family, Cheryl will be greatly missed. I had a special connection with Cheryl, she served on the interview team that hired me at the Kanawha County Public Library and she introduced me to several of her friends from the St Albans community while attending the Tisket Tasket Basket Auction a few months later. Cheryl was very supportive during my employment at KCPL Even the midst of her own illness, she extended her heart felt compassion for others. This is how I will remember her legacy and.I will be eternally grateful for all the support and kindness she shared with me during my time of loss in my life. To the family, you have my heartfelt sympathy during this time. Take one day at time and cherish the wonderful memories.
    Sincerely April Wallace

    I’m so very sorry to hear about Cheryl’s passing. We’ve been friends since grade school. Cheryl reached out to me last year when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She was so sweet, kind and upbeat.
    My God bless the entire Morgan family!

    So sorry to hear of Cheryl’s passing. We always enjoyed seeing her around the ridges and Matthew remembers the first Halloween we lived there- she “pranked” him with a potato then pulled out a jumbo bag of M&Ms! She will be missed by her friends and the community.
