Cheryl A. Simmons
JEFFERSON- Cheryl Ann Simmons, 65, passed away on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at Jefferson Healthcare after a short, but courageous battle with Alzheimer’s / Dementia.
The daughter of Leon and Dorothy (Holbrook) Emerson, Cheryl was born on February 6, 1952 in Conneaut. She was a graduate of Conneaut High School and had remained a lifelong area resident.
On June 13, 1970 Cheryl and Ron Simmons were united in marriage. Their forty seven years of marriage was full of love and laughter and many cherished memories.
Cheryl enjoyed crossword and jigsaw puzzles, reading and most any type of music. She really enjoyed listening to Bee Gee’s, The Monkees and Foreigner. She was a volunteer at the schools when her children were younger. Cheryl had a keen sense of humor and a quick wit; at times you did not know whether to take her seriously or not. Cheryl loved her family and she enjoyed spoiling her beloved grandchildren.
