Cheryl Ann (Betten) Rigler, 68, crossed over to be with Jesus and her departed loved ones on Friday, Sept. 29th, 2017. Cheryl was born March 23, 1949 in Lebanon, IL. She grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey and attended Cazenovia College in New York. She left us unexpectedly, but we know she is with those who have preceded her to the heavenly kingdom; most recently her parents France and Coe Betten, her brother Bradford and beloved Larry D’Agostino.
She was the model of a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a relative and a friend. She was a tireless champion of those who couldn’t do for themselves, and was always the first to be the ‘caregiver’. She is remembered fondly by the families and friends of the many people she comforted in their times of deepest need. For her, giving was not a chore but a pleasure, and we know our Lord welcomed her with “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
Her life’s journey took her to Whitefish, Montana and Hastings, Nebraska and along the way blessed her with her greatest treasure – a close knit family of four children and thirteen grandchildren that were blessed to have the most caring and creative matriarch imaginable. She never missed an important game or event and there will be no shortage of lifelong memories of gatherings where she sat as the nucleus of love and pride for each of them.
It is with immense sorrow that she leaves behind daughter Kimmy (Rick) Squiers and grandchildren Jordan, Rebecca, David, Madison, Anna, and Calissa; daughter Shana (Adam) Carter and granddaughter Lainey; son Brett (Michelle) Rigler and grandchildren Wesley, Jackson and Katia; son Jesse (Linden) Rigler and grandchildren Colt, Jase and Faith. She has six brothers, Terry, Scott, Randy, Rick, Mark, Brad (dec) and two sisters, Chrissie and Laura, residing in Florida, and a trail of friends and relations from coast to coast that will forever miss her warm smile and quiet countenance.
We are comforted to know that she is now resting in His Peace with no wants or cares, for as He promised “..whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”
A service will be held Monday, Oct. 9th, 10:30am at Prince of Peace Catholic Church, 2407 W 56th St, Kearney, Nebraska.
