Cheryl was born June 8, 1977 to late Brian Wilkinson and Jeanne Tait. In her early years she enjoyed riding motorbikes with her brothers and cousins in Lily Plain, SK as well as visiting her Memere and cousins in Duck Lake, SK any chance she had. When she was young she waddled when she walked earning her the nickname “ducky”. Cheryl met Gary Nemish in 1994 and were inseparable from day one. They began their lives of having kids, getting married and starting businesses together so they would never have to be apart. She enjoyed spending time with her children and supporting them in any activity or dream they wanted to pursue, from Ukrainian dancing, guitar lessons, 4H and horse shows. When at work, she enjoyed spending time getting to know her customers and considered most of them more as friends and family. Cheryl very much enjoyed where she lived but also enjoyed travelling whenever she could.
Cheryl was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer in 2020 and surpassed many expectations. Thanks to the help of her cousin Sandra (Russell) Misponas and the palliative home care team, she was able to spend most of her journey in the comfort of her own home. Cheryl will forever be remembered by her thoughtfulness, courage, humour, and most of all her kind heart.
