Many of you are past Country Threads customers and likely remember Cheryl Barkema who worked here for several years. Cheryl passed away on Tuesday and Connie and I want to extend our deepest sympathy to Cheryl’s husband Don and her 3 daughters, Jill, Julie and Kari. Cheryl had a stroke a few years ago and her life changed dramatically. Here are some of the many pictures I have of Cheryl at the shop.
Our book “Use It Up..” Staff photo on the back cover – wow, there were lots of us back then!
And my favorite picture of Cheryl! Susannah is waiting for Cheryl at the bottom of the ladder and Cheryl knows it – ha! Cheryl is putting up fall decorations and Susannah just wants to butt her. Isn’t this just the cutest picture ever? I love it! And I loved both of them and now they’re both gone. Heaven will now be decorated more lovely than ever if Cheryl gets a hand in it.
