A kind and gentle soul, a gracious and loving lady, Cheryl Lynn O’Cull, entered eternal rest at her home in Rocky Point, NC, on Sunday, November 3, 2019 at the age of 68 while being loved and cared for by her beloved daughters. She was born October 14, 1951 in Kankakee, Illinois to William F. Worsham and Deloris McCraven Worsham and grew up in Manteno, Illinois.
In addition to her parents Cheryl was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Steven O’Cull.
Cheryl is survived by her daughters, Rochelle O’Cull and Jamie Garriss, both of Rocky Point; granddaughter, Christa Garriss; brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Rita Worsham of Manteno, IL; niece, Annie Mitchell and husband, Adam; and nephew, Tony Worsham and wife, Erin; many extended family and dear friends.
She graduated from Southeastern Illinois College in Harrisburg, IL with a nursing degree. Becoming a Registered Nurse, Cheryl worked as a dedicated director of nursing in several long term care facilities with a career that spanned for many years.
Cheryl was a joy to know. Being small in stature she was large in will power and getting things done. She was a loyal friend to many and most important in her life was being a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. Cheryl has cared for many during her life on this earth and now she is at rest in peace. In our hearts we do miss her!
The family will have a gathering of family and friends to share memories and hugs from 5 to 8:00 p.m. Friday, November 8, 2019 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home in Burgaw.
