After battling with emphysema and finally in remission from lung cancer, but then diagnosed very recently with liver cancer, Sheryl’s mother, Billie (Willetta) Cobbledick (née Finley), passed away peacefully on Monday afternoon, July 16, 2007, at Hospice of the Valley.

Our thoughts and intentions go out to Sheryl’s father/Billie’s husband David Cobbledick, and her older sister and brother, Susie and Tom Cobbledick, as well as extended family and friends.

There will be a memorial service for family.

In lieu of flowers, David Cobbledick requests instead that donations be sent to the Hospice of the Valley.
