Cheryl L. Walker, 59, of Milford, died Wednesday, July 3, at Goshen Hospital after a six-month battle with cancer

She will be remembered by those who knew her in the various roles she played in their lives – a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend.

She was born in Muncie, Ind., in June 1965 and had lived in Kosciusko County for 50 years. She was a 1983 graduate of Wawasee High School and a 1987 graduate of Ball State University.

She married Kevin Walker on Aug. 22, 1987.

He survives, along with their two daughters, Megan (Matt) Granger, of Syracuse, and Amy Walker of Bradenton, Fla.

Other survivors include Cheryl’s four grandchildren – Hadley, Lincoln, Aubrey and Rhys Granger – along with her mother, Nancy Arnold of Goshen; her twin sister, Carol (Matt) Tuggle of Lafayette; her brother, Douglas (Jennifer) Walker of Middletown; six nieces; a nephew; five great-nieces and a great-nephew. She was preceded in death by her stepfather, Don Arnold.

Cheryl was the bookkeeper for Milford schools for 22 years, and for a time was a volleyball, basketball and gymnastics coach at Milford Middle School. She also worked part-time at the front desk of Oakwood Resort in Syracuse.

Cheryl took pride in her daughters’ accomplishments and enjoyed spending time with family members, especially her grandchildren.  Visitation will be held on Saturday, July 13, 2024 from 2-5 PM at the Eastlund Funeral Home
