Cheryl was born on Oct. 6, 1952, in Orange County, California, to Herman and Marjorie Erbst, the second of four children. She was raised in California and moved to Arizona in her late teens. She worked in her parents’ cleaning service and restaurant. In Arizona she met Ken Twite. To this marriage Cheryl chose to love, raise and adopt his three children, Kenneth, Jackie and Sabrina and Tina was born shortly thereafter. She started her own cleaning business while living in Arizona; a business she continued to run after moving to Buffalo in 1980. Cheryl and Ken divorced in 1983. Cheryl met Robert Glenn in the mid 1980s and from this union Christopher was born.
Cheryl was a very successful businesswoman that loved to clean many homes and businesses in Buffalo. It is believed that at one time or another she cleaned a majority of the businesses in town. She owned and operated her business for over 35 years, and due to declining health turned the business over to her daughter, Tina, and grandson, Hutch. She will be remembered for her generosity, unconditional love, quirky sense of humor and outgoing personality.
She is survived by her daughters, Tina Thompson of Buffalo and Sabrina Bowersox of Craig, Colorado; and son, Christopher Geiner of Phoenix, Colorado; brother, Gary Erbst and sisters, Pamela Waters and Donna (Michael) Deitrich all of Arizona; 11 grandchildren: Grace, Ember, Denver, Garrett, Rebekah, Michael, Anna, Daniel, Hutch, Tasia and Lyric; and nine great-grandchildren, with two more expected. She was preceded in death by her parents, son Kenneth Twite, daughter Jackie Bowers and son-in-law Krent Thompson.
