Kimberly Ann Cherry, age 59 of Uniontown, PA passed away quietly on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at the Uniontown Hospital with her children by her side.

She was born to Virginia Ann Cherry and the late Reverend Walter Cherry on June 19, 1959.

Kimberly attended Laurel Highlands High School and graduated in 1979.  Kim, as we all lovingly called her, was an intelligent, very talented young woman. After graduating from high school, Kim worked as a seamstress at a local clothing factory. She was quite the fashion designer. Kim created and sewed many of her own clothes as well as created outfits for family and friends.

Kimberly then attended California University of Pennsylvania where she majored in Gerontology, the scientific study of aging, as she planned to work in the Social Services field with the elderly. She worked in several local nursing homes taking care of the elderly for several years.

Known as Ms. Kim to her family and friends, her smile and her big personality would light up the room. Kim definitely made her presence known. Her casual conversations and comical remarks would have everyone laughing along with her. Kim was a true entertainer in her own right.

Kim was also an exceptional baker and cook. She spent many hours in the kitchen baking all kinds of cookies, fudge, pies and cakes and let’s not forget those incredible dinner rolls made from scratch! Her cooking and baked goods were often in demand, so delicious and served up with Kim’s loving smile. Kim was exceptionally proud of being a successful Mary Kay consultant in her final years, as she wanted the world to have a beautiful smile like hers. Kim had a HUGE Heart and really loved making people happy even if it was in the smallest ways or gestures. She opened up her home to others, gave advice as needed, and truly made her mark on this world wherever she went.

Kimberly met and married Charles Kevin White and their union produced two children, eldest daughter, Lacey Sharrece and son, Jiles Walter William. Later in life, she met the late Randy Keith Dennis and their union produced her youngest daughter, Kimberly Raven.

Kimberly loved her children with all of her heart and was so very proud of all of them. She loved to brag about their accomplishments, especially her youngest daughter, Kimberly Raven, who served in the U.S. Army. She lovingly referred to Raven as her “Soldier Girl,” Lacey as “Sugar Bear” and her handsome son Jiles as “J-Dawg.”  Kim loved her children and her family fiercely and passionately.

Once Kim became a grandmother to Javeyah, Kolby, Jayla, Kaedy, Jelijah, Hailey, & Charity, her love for all of her grandchildren gave her great joy and happiness. Kimberly spent her final day with all of her grandchildren as planned by her daughter, Kimberly Raven, before she went on to be with the Lord. Truly a blessing.

Most importantly, Kim loved and knew the Lord. She would uplift you and encourage you even when she herself was experiencing sadness and trials and tribulations of her very own. One of her most lasting words of advice and prayers was “Trust in the Lord every day. Trust Him to carry you through. Don’t worry about tomorrow, just live from day to day. Jesus Christ is still on the throne. All praises to our Lord and Savior!”

Kim was preceded in death by her father, Reverend Walter Cherry, her sister, Deborah Jean Cherry, and her infant sons, Kevin, Terrance, & Brandon. To cherish her loving memory, she leaves behind her mother, Virginia Ann Cherry, Uniontown, PA, daughter Lacey Sharrece White, Pittsburgh, PA, son Jiles Walter William White, Uniontown, PA, daughter Kimberly Raven Robinson, Uniontown, PA, brother, Reverend Walter Stephen Cherry, wife Patricia, Washington, PA, brother Timothy Lee Cherry, wife Stacey, Las Vegas, NV, brother Kelvin Ray Cherry, Boise, ID, sister, Paula Virginia Alston, husband, Melvin Alston, Jr., Waldorf, MD, 7 grandchildren, 2 godchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of additional family and friends.

I am so very sorry for your huge loss! It is a loss to me as well, as Kim was a friend for many years! I am so happy to know for sure that she is with Jesus, however, and not having to endure this sinful world any longer. I was looking forward to seeing her family at the funeral home but I have an appointment in Pittsburgh at 10 Saturday morning that was made a couple of months ago and I need to keep it. I’ll be praying that the Lord will comfort, strengthen and keep you all safe and close to Him as you look to Him during this difficult time!
