Flanagan, Cheryl Lynn (9 February 1953 - 8 October 2012)

Cheryl Flanagan, 59, of Augusta, GA, passed into God’s hands Oct. 8, 2012, at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Tomah.

Cheryl Lynn Flanagan was born Feb. 9, 1953, in Chicago, IL, the daughter of Joseph and Colleen (Smith) Flanagan. She graduated from Neillsville High School in 1972 and was an Army veteran of the Military Police Corps. She traveled worldwide during her military career, and one of her favorite places was Sinop, Turkey. Cheryl also spent time with the Federal Marshall Service and later she spent 10 years in security with the Marriott hotel in Augusta, GA.

Cheryl had a zest for life. She loved many people who were in her life. He accepted them as they were and expected no less in return. She had a love for crocheting and gave her doilies freely and with her heart and soul, expecting nothing in return. Her best love of all was being in good company, especially with Stephen and Jerry, and cooking and baking from scratch for them. She will miss everyone.

She would like to thank the nurses of 402A at the VA medical Center in Tomah. “They were the best.”

She is survived by her mother, Colleen Kunhart of Neillsville; four brothers, Mike Flanagan of Lexington, KY, Tom (Sandy) Kunhart of La Crosse, Fred W. Kunhart of Neillsville and John Kunhart of Knoxville, TN; a sister, Kathy (Mike) Hart of Neillsville; many nieces and nephews; and a special friend to the family, Danny Hainz of Neillsville.

She was preceded in death by her stepfather, Fred R. Kunhart; and a sister, Frances L. Flanagan.

A memorial service for Cheryl will be held at a later date.
