Cheryl Louise Christensen Wood

November 1, 1941 — November 11, 2022

Cheryl Louise Christensen Wood was born November 1, 1941 in Payson, Utah and passed away November 11, 2022 on her 62nd wedding anniversary peacefully in her home after a brave battle with bone cancer with her husband, Sam, by her side. Sam selflessly and lovingly cared and supported Cheryl during her illness.
Cheryl was the third of seven children born to Isabel Louise Mickelson Christensen and Andrew Ivan Christensen.
Cheryl grew up in Eureka, Juab County, Utah. Ivan supported the family working at the mine. Cheryl was given a name and a blessing in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Sunday, December 7 while Japan was bombing Pearl Harbor. The government acted fast and froze Ivan at his job as a miner of iron ore until the war ended. After the family was able to leave Eureka, they relocated to Bountiful, Utah where Cheryl finished her senior year of high school. She met Sam shortly after arriving in Bountiful. After their marriage and sealing in the Salt Lake City temple, they lived in the Avenues in Salt Lake City for five fun years, before buying a home in Bountiful and moving back to raise three children.
Cheryl enjoyed raising her children as a stay-at-home mother then later working for Davis school district when her children were older. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, reading, and traveling. Cheryl and Sam traveled extensively. They visited and walked in all 50 states in the United States and enjoyed many cruises.
Cheryl leaves behind her husband, Samuel Steven Wood, daughter, Cherylin Wood Winkel (Bryan Henry), son Steven Andrew Wood (Janeen Jensen), and daughter, Vicky Ann Wood Manning (Ryan Roger); 12 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren, and siblings:  Andrew C. Christensen, Elena Sandoval, Karen Mildon, Reed J. Christensen, and Blake G. Christensen. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Kenneth I. Christensen.
