Black, Cheryl Ann (Eichel)

Cheryl Ann (Eichel) Black, age 66, of University Park died Thursday, September 14, 2017 following a long battle with breast cancer.

Her life was dedicated to serving others which was especially evident in a nursing career that often involved leadership.

In 2013 she was named one of the 100 Great Nurses in DFW. Her most rewarding and impactful legacy was being a friend, advisor and encourager to those with health concerns.

She is survived by husband, Jeff; children, Kirsten Bruner, Ian and Trevor; grandson Von; siblings, Glenn Eichel and Laurie Hess.

Dr. Black, you were a good husband and partner. I'm know it was a long fight and they always end roughly. It's not fair. My condolences for you loss. Thinking about you.

Cheryl surely demonstrated who a true Christian is by her actions and deeds. I remember Cheryl assisting Dr Paul Sanders to administer flu shots to All Nations members when we stated our worship service at HP.Most of us were first generation immigrants who had no health insurance then. Cheryl gave her service for free with a lot of Joy. When I wanted to renew my CPR card, Cheryl was there for me and she thought me tremendous skills of CPR. I can write so much about Cheryl, but all I can say for now is that Cheryl was my Freind and my mentor. I miss her but I am greatful for I know I will see her again. Amen. I pray for the lord's comfort to Dr Jeff,children, grandchildren and the family at large.

Cheryl was a mighty figure. A totally devoted & loving mother. A blissful doting grandmother. A friend whom all those who knew her could count on if they needed her for help and support. I was certainly blessed to know her. I will miss her tremendously.
