Cheryl Ann Thompson, born on November 5, 1955 in Phoenix, Arizona to Bob and Emily Thompson, passed away on March 22, 2021 in Gilbert, Arizona.

Cheryl was preceded in death by her sisters, Karren Burch and Barbara Henderson. She is survived by her parents, Bob and Emily Thompson; twin sister, Valerie Randall; sons, Robert Waits and Christian Cloudt (Jessie); her sweet grandson, Gip; and many nephews and nieces.

Cheryl worked many jobs, from truck driving to medical coding. She loved traveling with her most recent job as a Medical Coder. She loved Houston and San Diego, where she stayed for long stints. She attended school at Lehi Elementary, Kino Junior High and Carson Junior High, and Westwood Highschool. Cheryl graduated from Phoenix College.

Cheryl loved being outside. Gardening was a passion. She created a “Victory Garden” for her parents. She also loved the ocean and deep-sea fishing. That is where she was the happiest. Her last trip was to Rocky Point, Mexico to play on the beach. Her Aunt Judy took her hiking and kayaking all over the state of Arizona and they always came back with great stories. She built and remodeled multiple homes. There wasn’t much she couldn’t do. She was always creating, from welding to oil painting.

Cheryl had a passion for helping others. She knew no strangers. In the hospital, she proved that all who cared for her loved her. She made being ill fun, even as sick as she was. She was one that helped the sick, the afflicted, and the poor. Her biggest joy was her son, Robert. They had a special bond. Together they worked on lots of programs and projects for veterans and recovering addicts.

Cheryl, you will be truly missed by all.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 2, 2021 at San Tan Mountain View Funeral Home, 21809 S. Ellsworth Rd., Queen Creek, AZ  85142.

In lieu of flowers please consider donating to “Soldier’s Best Friend” who provide US military veterans with Service or Therapeutic Companion Dogs, most of whom are rescued from local shelters. http://Soldiersbestfriend.org

    My family and I miss you terribly. My grand daughters adored you and you were one of the few adults that they actually listened to. You just were that very special person in our lives and in our home there will never be another again. GOD BLESS YOU MY DEAREST BESTEST FRIEND. Rest peacefully; no pain no more suffering. Just sunshine, beach’s to run on and sunflowers 🌻 everywhere. Gone but never to be forgotten. Much Love.
