Ehle, Cheryl Russell

Cheryl Russell Ehle, 68, of Unionville, was reunited with the Lord and her late parents Raymond and Julita Russell as she passed peacefully on May 3, 2020. The oldest of five children, Cheryl was born on July 13, 1951 and grew up in Yonkers, New York, where she established the deep bonds of siblinghood that would last throughout her lifetime. The Russell family would escape the city summer heat to Westbrook, CT which sparked Cheryl’s lifelong love of the beach, expanded her circle of friends, and provided countless memories that she cherished all her life. Her upbringing instilled in her a deep faith and spirituality that would serve as a constant source of strength. Her spirituality was reflected in her kind, gentle ways and her tendency to leave you feeling uplifted after being in her presence. Cheryl loved to make others feel good about themselves.
Her adult years were spent raising her 4 children in Burlington, CT before moving to Clinton, CT where she continued to grow her independence and develop a deeper sense of herself. She worked as a cashier in the Madison Stop and Shop for over 13 years, where she always greeted people with a smile and her sweet nature, and the customers knew her by name.
Cheryl was beloved by her children and family. She leaves behind son, Jason Ehle; daughter, Sondra Murphy and her husband Michael Murphy; son, Justin Ehle and his wife Amy Ehle; daughter Julita Cavallo and her husband Jonathan Cavallo; brother Raymond and his wife Cathy Russell; sister Lee and her husband Paul Boyle; brother Jordon and his wife Betsey Russell; sister Kerry and her husband Dan Hutson; and many nieces and nephews. She was proud to hold the title of “Meema” to her 7 grandchildren; Madison Ehle (Jason) Griffin, Gracie and Audrey Murphy (Sondra); and Annabelle, Jackson and Jameis Ehle (Justin).

    I was so saddened to learn of the passing of your mother. I knew her through Stop & Shop where her warm and caring personality drew me to her register every time I visited the store. She was always happy to see me, as I was to visit with her. Her warmth always brightened my day. I will miss her. May all these wonderful tributes of such a gentle and caring woman help you through your loss. My deepest condolences.

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I only knew her through stop and shop but i fully experienced her kindness. She was so nice to my children and myself as they grew up in front of her eyes while she helped us with our food orders. I always headed straight to her register no matter the line. She was worth any wait. My thoughts are with you. One of the true Angels has been called home.

    I am so sorry to hear of Cheryl’s passing. I would purposefully go to her register because not only did I know her name, amazingly she knew mine! I knew I would be greeted with a cheery “Hi Lynn!” I looked forward to chatting with her and have missed seeing her these past few years. The world has lost one of the good ones.

  13. Susan Cavallo says:

    Cheryl was the most beautiful, gentle sweet soul I have ever met. She was my daughter in law’s (Julita) Mother and I can honestly say she raised the most wonderful, respectful, children I have always felt like family to me. We had the pleasure of spending Christmas with her this year and our memory of Cheryl eating her favorite Lasagna ( cooked by Roberto) , playing our traditional grab bag game and just having fun. RIP Cheryl
