WARREN, Ohio – Cheryl Lynn D’Amore, age 68, of Warren, Ohio, passed away at 1:38 a.m. Monday, November 14 at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after a long difficult battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Mrs. D’Amore was born in Warren on April 6, 1948 to the late William and Betty Mae Griffith Hurst of Southington, Ohio and was a lifelong area resident.
Cheryl is a 1966 graduate of Chalker High School.
On January 31, 2014, Cheryl retired from a successful 42-year career at Seven Seventeen Credit Union, where she served as their Senior Vice President of Administrative Services.
While at the credit union she was not only a visionary leader but also a mentor to those new to the company and a friend to all.
Cheryl’s greatest joy in life was her family – her husband, three daughters and granddaughter.
She enjoyed traveling to visit them wherever they were in the “world”. One of her favorite places was Pawley’s Island, South Carolina where she could sit back and relax with her toes in the sand.
Cheryl is survived by her beloved husband of 45 years, Michael D’Amore, whom she married on September 11, 1971; her three beautiful daughters, April (Brad) Bezilla, Ashley (Matt Sample) D’Amore and Amy (Chris Blackburn) D’Amore; her granddaughter, Alexis Grace Bezilla; her sisters Linda King, Judy (Bob) Mirizio, Debbie (Chuck) Evans, Faye (Dave) Berndt and Billie (Joe) Marscio; as well as her large extended family.
The family will receive friends from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m on Friday, November 18 at the Sinchak and Kaszowski Funeral Home, 727 East Market Street, Warren, Ohio 44481.
Services will begin on Saturday, November 19 at 9:00 a.m. with closing prayers to be recited in the funeral home followed by a Mass of Christian Burial to be offered at 9:30 a.m. with Fr. Bernard R. Schmalzried officiating in St. Mary’s Church.
