There are condolences waiting approval on CHERYLL's Tribute wall
Cheryll Vanessa Chew passed away on Sunday morning April 30, 2017 at the age of 64 years old; she was the oldest child of Donald R. Chew, Sr. and Carrie M. Chew.

Cheryll was a veteran of the United States Air Force. She was honorably discharged from the Air Force with the rank of Sergeant as a dental hygienist.

She graduated from Calvert Senior High School in June 1970. Soon after graduation, Cheryll joined the United States Air Force. Cheryll loved the Air Force and the time she spent overseas at Tachikawa Air Force Base in Japan, serving her country.

After leaving the Air Force, Cheryll returned to Maryland where she continued to serve the public by joining the Howard County government including the Howard Country Department of Corrections where she earned the rank of Lieutenant.

A few years after leaving the Howard County Department of Corrections, Cheryll moved back to Calvert County where she continued to serve her fellow veterans by working at the American Legion Post, in Prince Frederick, where she earned the rank of Commander. Cheryll continued to work at the Post even as her health began to fail because it was something she was very passionate about and it made her feel wonderful inside to know that she was doing whatever she could to help those that served our country. Everyone that passed through the Post touched Cheryll's life in a positive manner, as we know she touched theirs.

Cheryll was preceded in death by her father Donald Chew, Sr. and her brother Donald Chew, Jr. Cheryll is survived by her mother Carrie Chew and 9 remaining siblings; Lorna McQuinnie, Daryl Chew, Michael Chew, Sibyl Johnson, Maurice Chew, Clayton Chew, Hestelle Hall, Kevin Chew and Brian Chew including 3 nieces and 7 nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking everyone to make a donation in Cheryll’s name to the Wounded Warrior Project (
