Cheryl Ann Kessel, age 64, passed away Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at her home in Baldwin, WI.

Cherie loved all things beautiful… especially flowers and nature’s scenery. She was an artist in many ways, particularly with sewing and she became dear friend to all her clients she cleaned for. She had a silly side that made everyone laugh and a smile that lit up every room she entered. She loved animals of all kinds (thanks to Katey and Jon bringing everything home from crayfish and lizards to cats and birds). Cherie touched so many lives in so many ways. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Dean Courneya and Darlene Lachowitzer. Survived by her son Jon Wicks , her daughter Katey Rivard, her grandson Michael Courneya, her brothers Arnold (Cindy) Courneya,  Stuart (Mary) Courneya,  Ron (Linda) Courneya, Paul (Suzy) Courneya, her sister Marcyne Cahill.

A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2019, at The O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Baldwin, WI.

Services have been entrusted to The O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Baldwin, WI.

    • My sweet Cherie. You have finished your journey on earth and I can only imagine Jesus welcoming you and the heavenly reunion you have already had with my Mom – your Grandma Lilly, and my sister Darlene – your Mom (among many others). And as you stand there in God’s presence, I believe, you will understand completely for the first time what love really is and how much our Jesus loves each one of us. What a blessing you have been to us – Remember my last words to you, “I love you and I’ll see you on the other side.”
