Cheri Carr (Foley) Funeral & Childrens' Edu. Fund

In the words of her sister, Lauren:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have to say goodbye to our Cheri.  

As I try to find the right words to say about my sister, I imagine her saying “You better write something f**king good, Lauren.” And I want to say all the right things, but I don’t have them right now. What I can say, is that we love her so so much and we are in complete heartache at the loss of her shining presence. 

We have set-up a GoFundMe page to support the financial expenses for funeral costs. If we can raise enough support for funeral costs, any remaining money will go towards future college expenses for Cheri’s daughters. 

We appreciate anything that you can contribute. Please keep our family, her friends and especially her little girls in your thoughts and prayers. We need all of them!

I will find the right words, Cheri.. just not now.  
-Lauren Foley

On behalf of the family, we thank you for your support and generous donations.

If you would like to pay your respects to Cheri and her family, this will be open from 10 am to 12:00 pm. The service will directly follow this period of visitation at noon at the same location. We ask that anyone with stories/memories they would like to share can do so following the service.
