Obituary of Cheryl Farr (nee Lisk)
It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Cheryl Farr (Nee Lisk) on December 29th, 2020 at the age of 63. Cheryl will be deeply missed by Bill Farr, her best friend and beloved husband of 42 years. Cheryl was the love of Bill’s life - he treasures the beautiful memories of the life they built together. Devoted Mother to William Farr (Stephanie) and Pamela McConnell (Patrick). The loss is immeasurable as we not only lost our Mom but a dear and treasured friend.
Her greatest joy in life was her role of “Grammie” to her four beautiful grandchildren, Jack, Gavin, Freddie and Whalen. She will be remembered fondly for her warm hugs and her endless smoochies will be so missed. Adored daughter-in-law to Edith and William Farr. Sister in-law to John Farr, David Farr, Karen Sypes, Laura Stouth, Elaine Farr and spouses, she was very loved by all. Cheryl will be deeply missed by her Aunt Betty White and Uncle Allan White, Cousins Linda and Neil, Lila-Mae and her Son Ray.
Cheryl also will be missed by her 10 nieces and nephews and all of their children; they each held a special place in her heart.
Cheryl had a passion for horses that started very early in her life. Cheryl was a friendly face and caring horse lover in the equine community over the years. She leaves behind many “barn families” that she cared so deeply for over the years. Cheryl will be dearly missed by her many coworkers at Niagara Health - she considered many her close friends and sisters. The relationships she made during her time at Niagara Health made a profound impact in her life.
We are certain a beautiful reunion has taken place with her loving Mother Shirley Lisk and Jack Lisk.
Cheryl had a passion for good food and good drinks. She made delicious roast beef dinners with world famous gravy, frequently requested by her family. Her famous taco dips were also the first to be devoured at any event. Cheryl adored taking family vacations and loved country music. The memories of attending country concerts together will be cherished by her daughter Pamela and loving sister-in-law’s, Laura Stouth and Karen Sypes.
If you knew Cheryl - you knew she lived a life full of kindness, compassion, and integrity. We plan to honour Cheryl by holding on to these values and continuing to live life to the fullest.
