Cheryl was a Christian and loved to cross stitch, arts and crafts and most of all, her family.

Survivors include three sons; Matthew E. Rager of Savannah, Georgia, Michael L. Rager and his wife, Shawna of Fairfax, Virginia and Lucas S. Rager and his wife, Monique of San Antonio, Texas; a sister, Joyce Follinus, and her husband, James of Casa Grande, Arizona; four grandchildren, Mikaila Rager, Hannah Rager, Neveah Chapman, and Alexis Chapman; many nieces and nephews, and her loving dog and companion Baxter.

    Cheryl was such a wonderful and sweet lady. I worked with her aver 25 years ago at the skating rink and she always treated as one of her own and have always remembered her as a loving mother to her 3 sons. She will always have a special place in my heart. My condolences to the Rager family. Heaven has gained an incredible angel.
