On May 15, 2020 the Lord called home Cheryl Lanette Knutson. She passed away peacefully at home with her loving family by her side. She was born on Oct. 20, 1946 in Jackson, Mich., the daughter of Eugene and Henrietta (Shampo) Oettinger.
She would have been 74 years of age in October. She married Gary Knutson on Feb. 15, 1966 and he preceded her in death on June 25, 2010.
Cheryl was passionate about family and she always enjoyed the holidays when the whole family could be together. Close to her love for her family was her dogs, Abby and Sam, who meant the world to her. She enjoyed many interests which included gardening, bird watching, Packers games, playing cards, especially 500 Rummy, and Jigsaw puzzles. She also looked forward to the many meaningful lunches she shared with her family and many friends.
Cheryl is sadly missed by those who survive her, her daughter Lynne Knutson Gaudioso, her son Jeff (Janet) Knutson, her grandchildren Chelsea (Matt) Zerumski, Liam Knutson, Anthony Gaudioso and Michael Gaudioso and many more family and friends who will all miss her smiles and hugs.
Because of the present situation private services for her immediate family will be held. She will be laid to rest next to her husband Gary in the Forest Home Cemetery.
