Obituary of Cheryl Fradenburgh
Webster: Thursday, October 18, 2018. She leaves her mother, Helen; father, Donald; sister, Sue (Kevin) Fradenburgh-Thompson; brother, Gary; niece, Katelyn F. Thompson; nephews, Michael & Nicholas F. Thompson; relatives, many dear friends and faithful service dog, Sammy.
Cheryl graduated high school from New Hartford, NY in 1980. She loved being part of the marching band color guard squad. She went to Nazareth College and received an under graduate degree in English and a master’s degree in education. Her love of children drew her towards teaching. Cheryl worked for the RCSD where she taught for 25 years at school #29 as a special education teacher. She was an exceptional teacher because she believed in her students. She found their strengths and built on their weaknesses. She was firm, but very loving. Cheryl was also deeply involved in Special Olympics as a coach and spokesperson. She fought a courageous 24-year fight with Dystonia. Her relentless determination to keep teaching despite her limitations was admirable. Once she stopped teaching, she continued to find strength through God. She never took life for granted and was grateful for every day she lived. She found joy in the simple things in life, which made one see her beautiful soul. Cheryl had a tremendous love for her niece and nephews and saw them as her own children. She was extremely open-minded, had a zest and love for life. She was endlessly patient and graceful.
