Cheryl A. Russell

Cheryl Ann Russell (née Fiore, Moore), born on May 14, 1953, passed away on December 26, 2023, at the age of 70, will be fondly remembered as a beacon of love and resilience in Philadelphia, PA. Her life, marked by deep commitment to her family and community, stood as a testament to her compassionate and nurturing nature.

Cheryl was the beloved daughter of the late Peter and Regina Fiore, whose values and love shaped her into the remarkable woman she became. She was the cherished wife of the late David Russell, with whom she shared a profound and loving partnership. A loving mother to Charles Moore, Gina (David) Arnold, Robert (Shannon) Moore, and the late Derrick Moore, Cheryl provided unwavering love and guidance. She also embraced her role as a grandmother and step-grandmother with immense joy, cherishing every moment with her grandchildren Matthew and Jenna Roedell, Robert and Georgia Rose Moore, and step-grandchildren Hayden and Tyler Arnold. Additionally, she was a proud great-grandmother to Payton Roedell.

Her sisters, Jean (Craig) Bradby and Darlene (Tom) Haughey, were not only siblings but also her close friends. As an aunt, she was adored by many nieces and nephews, each of whom held a special place in her heart.

Beyond her immediate family, Cheryl's friendships, especially with her dear friend Mary Meyer Taylor, were a reflection of her warm and generous spirit. She had the unique gift of forming lasting, meaningful connections.

Cheryl's life journey was one of nurturing love, strength in the face of life's challenges, and the enduring importance of family and friendship. Her legacy is one of love, resilience, and the importance of maintaining strong family bonds. Her warm smile, generous heart, and wisdom will be deeply missed but will continue to inspire those who knew her.

As we bid farewell to Cheryl, we celebrate her extraordinary life and the countless ways she enriched ours. Her family expresses deep gratitude for the support and love shown during this difficult time.

Rest in eternal peace, Cheryl Ann Russell. Your spirit, full of love and kindness, will forever guide and light the way for your family and friends.
