In Loving Memory of Cheryl I. Armstrong
1944 – 2023
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Mom, Cheryl (Cherrie) Isabel Armstrong, wife of the late Lloyd Henry Armstrong, who passed away at the Miramichi Regional Hospital on November 15, 2023, at the age of 79.
Born in Chatham NB, she was the youngest daughter of the late James Edward and Mary Alma (Murdoch) Williston.
She is survived and will be deeply missed by her children: Danny (Paula) Armstrong, Gwen (Troy) Hierlihy and Tanya (Ali) Armstrong; her grandchildren: Cory, Jonathan (Jen), Jeremy (Kelsey), Josh (Ashley), Daniel, Hannah, MacKenzie, Jada, Megan, Cameron; and her great-grandsons: Max, Grayson and Layton; her sister, Dawn Bell; and many special nieces and nephews who were also counted among her closest and dearest friends.
Mom’s greatest passion was her family and by family we mean whoever needed to be loved unconditionally and feel the warmth of a mother's touch. Her home was an open door with open arms, all were welcomed and could enjoy the feeling of genuine affection, laughter and a full belly. A whiz at the sewing machine meant warm quilts and perfectly crafted creations to be loved by all who had the pleasure of her talents. She loved a full house especially if her grandkids were the noisemakers and a trip to visit family was always a source of great enjoyment for her. She was a steadfast example of love and admiration in her marriage to the love of her life. Dad was her everything. We are all so very fortunate to be her children, grandchildren, family and friends. As she often said, “I am so blessed”, but in truth, it was our greatest blessing to be loved by her.
She is predeceased by her brothers: Keith (Thelma) Vernon, Ray (Elizabeth) and John Williston; sisters: Ida (Clarence) Bell, Doris (Harold) Godfrey, Delphina (Bennett) Knowles, Mildred Williston; and brother-in-law, Maurie Bell.
We are so grateful for the care received from the incredible Nurses and Doctors in the ICU at the Miramichi Hospital.
