Fondly remembered by numerous cousins from the Saffert family as well as Gail Longworth (Kevin), Hugh Lang, Claudia (Lang) Forrester, extended family, friends and neighbors in Wisconsin, Colorado, Arizona and Texas.
Born and raised in Rice Lake, WI., Cheryl was the second child born to Florian and Lillian Saffert. Cheryl attended St. Joseph’s Catholic School through 9th grade and then graduated from Rice Lake High School in 1962. She met Ron Lang in 1961 and he became the love of her life. After High School she went to Beauty School in Eau Claire, WI. Upon graduation from Beauty School she came back to Rice Lake and worked with her mother Lillian at the Charm Beauty Salon.
Ron and Cheryl moved to Colorado in the early sixties to pursue their dreams and start a family. As Ron worked hard to build a business, Cheryl went to work for the Edgewater Police Department and spent 40 glorious years as the Court Clerk and the Police Dispatch.
Ron and Cheryl enjoyed countless weekends in the mountains of Colorado at their cabins or their other favorite spots in Kansas or Arizona. Cheryl was animated and energetic. Always with a smile on her face or a twinkle in her eye. She had a genuine quality for immediately connecting with people. Diligent with her convictions and strong in her faith, she lived a pure and simple life.
If Cheryl has a lasting legacy, it is the expectation that we live our lives treating others with kindness, because that is the way she treated all of us.
Recitation of the Rosary will be 10:30 a.m. Tuesday January 7, 2020 at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Littleton, Colorado. Funeral Mass will follow at 11:00 a.m. Father Nolan will be officiating.
