Cheryl Irene Rush was born on April 18, 1949 in St. Paul, the daughter of James and Virginia (Luke) Falk. She moved with her family to Buena Park, California as a young girl and graduated from high school there in 1967. Soon after graduating she got married and started her family. Cheryl was a daycare provider which allowed her to stay at home with her young daughter. In 1970, Cheryl’s family moved back to Minnesota and she did as well. They lived in South St. Paul for a few months before settling in Cannon Falls where they have lived ever since. She worked as a housekeeper for the Angels Care Center. Cheryl loved doing puzzles.
