CHERYL LYNNE STEKLER It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our sister Cheryl on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at the age of 66 years. Cheryl will be lovingly remembered by her sisters, Kathleen and Nancy (Tony) and brother Bruce and her niece Christina Gilberto who had a very special place in her heart. She was predeceased by her parents, Ernie and Olga and brother Harry Stekler. For over 40 years Cheryl worked at Children's Hospital. She was a longtime vendor at St. Nobert Farmers' Market where her cabbage buns and imperial cookies were always a big hit, "oh how she loved to make them". Many friends gathered weekly at the market. Cheryl loved wintering in Hawaii. Cremation has taken place; a private service will be held at a later date. "Always in our hearts Cher."

  • My first job at Children's Hospital was as a unit clerk. Cheryl was the person that I was paired with to teach me the role. She was tough but she knew her stuff.

  • My sincerest condolences to family and friends of Cheryl. I first met Cheryl in 1982 and this was one person who could teach. Cheryl made a beautiful quilt for my first child who has also passed into God's kingdom. Cheryl had a heart of gold and touched many lives. I am a nurse and remember Cheryl helping me do dressing changes. May you find peace knowing Cheryl is resting and she worked hard touching the lives of many people. God Bless. - Posted by: Hearher (Co-worker) on: Jan 28, 2019

  • Cheryl will be missed by many. I met Cheryl as a student nurse over 24 years ago. She held CH4 together she loved all the children and families. She gave my daughter crap when she would call work and say she missed the bus again. She always talked about her niece Christina I remember Cheryl getting her her first cell phone. My thought and prayers are with her family and many friends. - Posted by: Shelly (Co worker and friend ) on: Jan 26, 2019

  • Our heartfelt condolences to Cheryl's family. We met Cheryl in the early 90's while she was employed at Children's Hospital. For many years my daughter Crystal frequently was admitted to the unit Cheryl worked on. Cheryl always showed kindness towards my family, I have many fond memories of her. She will be sadly missed. Rest in Paradise Cheryl you have been a wonderful personal friend to me and my family. Cheryl & Steve Rondeau - Posted by: Cheryl Rondeau (Friend) on: Jan 26, 2019

  • My condolences to Cheryl's family and friends. I worked with Cheryl at Children's Hospital for many years and I can honestly say there was no one more knowledgeable about the workings of the ward! Her insight into how to get the work done efficiently and her tremendous ability to be a resource when anyone in the hospital didn't know what "tube" to put the blood in or when the lab was coming saved us all lots of time and energy. Cheryl's first thought was always for the children in our care; she wanted the very best for our young patients. I appreciated her friendship in the years we worked together. May your memories of your sister, aunt, and friend as well as the gift of time bring you peace. Bernie Mandrick - Posted by: Bernadette Mandrick (colleague) on: Jan 26, 2019
