Obituary for Cheryl Kjergaard

Cheryl Ann Kjergaard was born September 24, 1955 to Robert and Phyllis (Monahan) Kuhn in Tyler, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed at Lake Benton United Methodist Church. She grew up in Lake Benton and graduated from Lake Benton High School in 1974, where she was Homecoming Queen. After high school, she completed the Floral Design program at Central Lakes College in Brainerd, Minnesota and worked at Bofferding Flower Shop in Marshall, Minnesota. On June 7, 1975 Cheryl married Steve Kjergaard at Grace Lutheran Church in Lake Benton. Their union was blessed with three children and 38 years of life together. The couple made their home and raised their family on the farm north of Lake Benton. Cheryl worked at Cenex Harvest States and at First Security Bank in Lake Benton. In June 2013 she was diagnosed with colon cancer. She fought a courageous battle and remained optimistic with life through it all. On Tuesday, May 27, 2014, Cheryl passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at the age of 58.

Cheryl was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Lake Benton, and a member of Lake Benton American Legion Auxiliary. She enjoyed quilting, scrapbooking, flower gardening, and design. She especially loved time spent spoiling her two grandsons, Brody and Drake.

Cheryl is lovingly remembered by her husband, Steve of Lake Benton; her children, Lance Kjergaard of Lake Benton, Cody (Andrea) Kjergaard of Kulm, North Dakota, and Kristi (Matt) Eickhoff of Lake Benton; grandsons, Brody Eickhoff and Drake Kjergaard; mother, Phyllis Kuhn of Lake Benton; siblings, Sandy (John) Cornelius of Whittier, California, Jeff (Linda) Kuhn of Winona, Minnesota, Linda (Larry) Englund of Brandon, Minnesota, and Joan (Tedd) Johnson of Rowlett, Texas; and many other relatives and friends.

Blessed be her memory.
