Cheryl Hester Obituary

Cheryl Lynn Hester passed away unexpectedly on Jan 29th, 2024, at the age of 54. She was a lifetime resident of Anderson Indiana.

Cheryl was born on January 7th, 1970, to Deacon Ishmon G. Hester, Sr. and Ernestine B. Byrd. She was known for her amazing cooking skills, talking stuff and her beautiful contagious smile.

She graduated from Oakland College with an Associate Degree in Business Administration and was a Culinary Arts Major at Ivy Tech Community College.
