OBITUARY: Cheryl Joan Buckley

Harvey County Now

Peacefully and surrounded by her family, Cheryl Joan Buckley passed to eternal life on Nov. 28, 2022, at home in Newton  at the age of 77 years following a battle with brain cancer.

Cheryl’s life is represented by the motto: “To Jesus Through Mary.” It is what made her so successful and defined her whole life. Those who knew Cheryl know that she was the most caring, giving, spiritual person. She was an inspiration for so many, providing comfort and guidance and is forever in our hearts.

Cheryl will be lovingly remembered and missed by her children: Troy Robinson (Melissa), Christin Olson (David Aymond), Sheri Albright, Dawn Medina (Edward), Jene’ Kingsolver-Farmer (Troy) and Jon Robinson (Heather); grandchildren: Trenton Robinson (Chesley), Terrence Robinson (Eva), Dustin Olson (Emily), Ray Olson (Shayla), Ashlea Hixson (George), Thomas Albright (Alex), Brooke Albright, Chantel Rindt (Lucas), Sydney Lagergren, Zackary Kingsolver (Taylor), Konnor Kingsolver, Jazlyn Kingsolver, Logan Kingsolver, Mackayla Kingsolver, Wyatt Farmer, Payton Thibodeaux (Alex), Chloe’ Salas (Cedric), Davin Pifer and Kal-El Robinson; and 18 great-grandchildren who all brought so much joy to “Mema.”

She is survived by her siblings Donald Miller, Kenneth Miller, Ronald Miller, sister Connie Wilson and brother-in-law Jim Wilson, as well as nieces, nephews and their families.

Cheryl will be deeply missed by her prayer groups “Our Lady” and “Divine Mercy” friends whom she hosted monthly; they provided her much strength and support, including her dearest friend, Bill Fangman.

She was predeceased in death by her loving husband of 10 years, Larry E. Buckley, and her parents Leonard A. and Dolores E. Miller.

Cheryl was born on July 16, 1945, in Hutchinson. She was the third of five children of Leonard and Dolores (Habiger) Miller.

The accomplishment that Cheryl may have been most proud of is her large, and ever-growing family.
