IN REMEMBERANCE OF CHERYL CARTER-WEEKS
An angel who touched us all
Cheryl Carter Weeks is a name synonymous with Isaiah House. Anyone who knows about Isaiah House, knows about Cheryl Carter-Weeks and she always made us look good. Since 1991, Cheryl served Isaiah House in the most loving and remarkable ways and made everyone around her feel her energy. She worked long and hard and never turned her back on her clients, her duties or the community. She was loved by all. If you met Cheryl, you loved her. If you didn’t, you missed out on an amazing woman who shared her life with the world. Clients, landlords, donators, vendors, colleagues and friends have all expressed a deep pain from Cheryl’s transition, however we hold on to the memories of who she was and will cherish them forever. Isaiah House has lost a treasure; a 25 year vet and a symbol of what it means to be a true team player. The Isaiah House Family will continue to cherish your memory and pass on the legacy you left behind. We love and miss you. Rest in Paradise dear friend.
