Cheryl always loved Alamogordo and the beauty and warmth of the southwest.\n\nCheryl attended Brigham Young University, graduating in 1965 with a bachelor’s degree. It was during this time that she met the love of her life, Stanley Gary Dalley. They were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple in August 1965and their path took them to Michigan and Nevada before they settled in Riverton, Utah in 1971. \n\nGary and Cheryl welcomed four children into their family.

Despite this great sadness, Cheryl’s strength and deep love encompassed her children and spread through service to family, friends and neighbors. She was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt.\n\nAs a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Cheryl has had the privilege of serving, teaching and leading in many capacities.

Over twenty years, she dedicated her efforts to protecting those who need extra help, shining a light on service deficiencies and coordinating the efforts of state agency leaders to solve problems.\n\nCheryl enjoyed traveling and was able to visit many areas of the world. She loved her travel partners who accompanied her through mountains, deserts, cities and villages around the world. She made friends and collected so many memories, along with an appreciation of cultures. She was also a patron of the arts, and always had tickets to the ballet, symphony and plays, and attended the Shakespeare Festival annually. Of course, she was a huge fan of the cinema, frequenting the movie theater with any friend that was available.
