Sept. 6, 1952 — Jan. 23, 2014

SAVANNA, Ill. — Cheryl Reagan shot straight from the hip and spoke from the heart. She died at the age 61, Thursday, January 23, 2014 at Mercy Medical Center North, Clinton, Iowa, surrounded by family.

Her candor and “genuine love” will be missed by all. You always knew where you stood with her, a characteristic to be desired by many. Along with these traits, was a loving heart, if you were fortunate enough to be a part of Cheryl’s life, you know this about her. She touched many lives as a nurse, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a mother, a grandmother, an aunt and a wife.

Cheryl was born on September 6, 1952, the daughter of Merle Gene and Shirley (Ruchotzke) Thompson in Clinton. Cheryl had a close relationship to her step-father, Joseph LaRell Turner, as he raised her and her siblings as his own. She married Gary Lee Tracy in 1983. Gary passed away on May 20, 1994.

On November 11, 2000 Cheryl married John “Jack” Reagan. He passed away September 16, 2012. She worked for IPSCO in Camanche, Iowa and owned and operated Fuzzy’s Tap in Sabula, Iowa. In 1993 she became a nurses’ aid and she worked as a hospice nurse for Genesis Hospice out of the Quad Cities.

She traveled far and in all kinds of weather to care for her patients. Perhaps it was your family member or someone you know that she provided comfort and care for. Cheryl gave of herself with little thought and made it seem effortless. Cheryl did this from the time she was a young child.

As friend or family, if you needed someone by your side, Cheryl was the person you wanted in your corner. She would be the first to defend and protect.

Cheryl was a member of the American Legion in Apache Junction, Arizona. She enjoyed reading, listening to live music, traveling and cooking. She loved spending time with her Sunday afternoon social club. Most of all, Cheryl loved to be with her friends and family. She worked hard and played hard. She cherished both. When Cheryl laughed, she laughed deep. When she smiled it was never “a fake smile.”
