Cheryl Dianne Bray
December 11, 1949 - November 27, 2023
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Cheryl Dianne Bray on Monday, November 27, 2023, a few weeks before her 74th birthday.
Loving mother of Ryan (Kathy) and Gavin. Cherished grandmother of Nolan, Megan, Harper and Sarah. Predeceased by her father Alex Nadeau, mother Lena Nadeau (nee Moore) and brother Bill Nadeau.
Cheryl was born in Haileybury, Ontario and grew up in Cobalt. She relocated to the Greater Sudbury Area and lived in Coniston, Garson and Sudbury while working and raising a family. Cheryl moved to Toronto in 1998. She enjoyed a long and rewarding career in the medical field as a nurse, medical secretary and dicta-typist and retired in 2010. Following her retirement, Cheryl remained dedicated to her profession and continued to work as a medical secretary.
Cheryl was highly independent and remained so throughout her life. Regardless of where she was or what she was doing, Cheryl was very loving and dedicated to her family. Cheryl was an avid reader and a great cook. She enjoyed music, arts and crafts, the beauty and wonder of nature and experiencing different cultures. Cheryl will be fondly remembered for her strength, courage, resilience and spirit when faced with any challenge. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
The family would like to sincerely thank the staff at the University Health Network, the Baycrest Centre, and especially the O'Neill Centre in Toronto for their support and caring for Cheryl in her final years.
