Cheryl M. Koehler passed away suddenly on May 7, 2023 at the age of 68. She was the daughter of Raymond and Dorothy Koehler.
Cheryl obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, following her mother’s footsteps. Her career as a nurse spanned 45 years including 34 years as a Cardiovascular ICU nurse where she cared for the most complex patients and had an important role as a preceptor of new nurses and role model for experienced nurses.
Cheryl loved visiting her family in Wisconsin, Minnesota and California. She enjoyed visiting her sister in California where she would swim in the pool, walk along the beach, visit the tidepools, and walk the Seal Beach pier. She spent many happy weekends at her brother’s lake home in northern Wisconsin where she enjoyed family gatherings, swimming, boating and fishing.
Cheryl enjoyed gardening while at home, clothes shopping, playing with her cats, and was a superfan of Badger hockey, Packer football and anything StarWars. Everyone loved Cheryl’s youthful and friendly disposition, her happy smile, and her love for friends and family. She will be missed by all.
Cheryl is preceded in death by her father Raymond and her mother Dorothy. She is survived by her brothers Raymond (Kim Anh), John (Liz), her sister Kay (Milan), nieces, nephews, cousins, and her special friends – Cheryl Racette and family, Suzanne Brochu, and Judy Schwartz.
Visitation will be on Friday, June 16th, 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM at Krause Funeral Home, 21600 West Capitol Drive, Brookfield, Wisconsin.
