Cheryl J Henwood was a caring mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world peacefully Thursday, Jan. 26, 2023, at the age of 61 surrounded by her family. She was born Dec. 6, 1961, in Tooele, Utah, to Jule and Betty Perry.
Cheryl graduated from Tooele High School in 1980 and worked in contracting at the Tooele Army Depot. She married Jack Henwood on Aug. 28, 1987. They had three children Lindsay, Steven, and Chad. Her husband passed away April 19, 2005. Cheryl loved writing, doing puzzles, and feeding the wild birds and deer that would visit outside her bedroom window. Her completed puzzles are decorating the walls around Cottage Glen Assisted Living where she spent the last five years. She had a powerful gift of connecting with people and advocating for those who couldn’t speak up for themselves. She was kind, loving, and generous to everyone around her.
Cheryl was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and sister Diane Gordon.
Cheryl is survived by her three children Lindsay Petersen (Adam), Steven Henwood, and Chad Henwood (Emily); sister Glenda Bender (Robbie); her grandchildren Kamden, Riley, Tinley, Houston, Skye, and Sloane; and several nieces and nephews.
Thank you to the amazing caregivers at Cottage Glen for making our mother feel at home.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023, at the Tooele 14th Ward. Interment at Tooele City Cemetery.
