Cheryl Herne

April 14, 1956 - January 13, 2024

Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Cheryl “Cherie” Lynn Herne, 67, a lifelong Scranton resident, walked through the Gates of Heaven on January 13th following her short but mighty 25 day battle with Glioblastoma as her daughter, Cindy, and sister, Debbie, faithfully never left her side.

Born on April 14, 1956, and daughter of the late John, Sr. and Ann (Sheehan) Herne, Cherie was a 1974 graduate of the former Scranton Technical High School. A lifelong server in the bar and restaurant business, Cherie was a familiar face as a waitress at Chick’s Diner for many years and always enjoyed tending a good bar.

Cherie was an avid Steelers fan who never missed watching a game and cheering them on.

Cherie loved taking care of others and had a special way of making everyone around her feel heard, valued and important. Cherie’s heart and mind were always open, ready to listen, and most importantly, looking to help others.

She treasured her children and grandchildren especially her “boys” who were always a phone call away

Her family would like to thank Dr. Glen Digwood, Compassionate Care Hospice and Oak Ridge Rehabilitation Center, especially to both Ashely Howey for being an amazing nurse, caregiver and friend to her and her entire family during her short and mighty battle with cancer as well as Abby Lee for being an advocate for her and her family when she needed it the most.

She is survived by her loving family including her children, Cindy Lester and husband Rick of Scranton, Jason Kaub and wife Devon of CA and Jeffrey Kaub of Scranton; 13 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren; sisters, Debbie Sumski of Peckville, Peggy Owens and husband Jack of MD, Ann Marie Herne and husband David of Scranton and Dottie Nelson of Scranton; her companion, Greg Taylor of Dunmore; and many nieces and nephews.

She was also preceded in death by her brothers, James and John Herne; her nephew, John Sumski; and brothers-in-law, Stanley Sumski and Bob Nelson.

A celebration of Cherie’s Life along with a blessing for her recently deceased brother, John Herne, is scheduled for Monday, February 5th, at noon in the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 N. Main Ave., Scranton, with burial to follow at the Cathedral Cemetery. Family and friends may pay their respects at the funeral home from 10:00 AM until services.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Cherie’s name to her adored family.
