Cheryl Jean Spring

November 10, 1945 ~ January 5, 2021 (age 75)


On January 5, 2021, surrounded with love at home, The Heavens gained an angel named Cheryl “Cher” Jean Spring, age 75.

Born in Michigan, Cher, and her husband Ted, resided in Missouri, Florida and settling in the majestic Smokey Mountains of North Carolina.

She worked for the Brown Shoe Co. in Missouri, the Florida Turnpike and the City of Highlands in North Carolina. Cher loved to cook and always had fresh baked cakes, pies, and cookies. You could always find her leaning on the counter cutting bite size pieces with her cup of coffee.

Her love for the outdoors is like no other. From the thousands of hand carried rocks landscaped throughout her property, gorgeous flowers and hand planted trees, to rafting down the river and even ziplining. At the age of 65 she competed in the Warrior Dash. Up at the crack of dawn enjoying her coffee was her favorite time of the day.

Her greatest love is her husband, Eugene “Ted” Spring. Married for 34 years. Their love story was full of respect and admiration, one to be modeled after. They shared their love of animals, dancing, and peaceful moments on their porch. Her other great loves are her 4-legged babies and of course, her children and grandchildren. She also always looked forward to her Fridays with Sandy and Jean, having breakfast, playing Bingo and Thrift Store shopping.

To sum up this beautiful woman in a few words, she is an amazing wife, mother, sister, friend and all around “Bad Ass”.

Cher was born to Woodie Phillips and Helen Shankland; a sister, Marlene Wood; four sons, James Heberger (Laura); Scott Heberger (Michelle), Michael Spring (Karen), Kirk Spring (Karen); a daughter, Sandy Harvey (Tim); grandchildren, Colin, Eric, Hannah, and Jade; pets, Bella, Zeus, Willow and Holly.
