Cheryl Haynes Hicks, 58, passed away on July 29, 2023, in Statesville, N.C. She was born on November 26, 1964, in Martinsville, Va., to Taylor Haynes and Gretchen Westman.

Cheryl was preceded in death by her mother, Gretchen Westman; her son, Alan Stabler; and her brother, Louie Haynes.

She is survived by her father, Taylor Haynes; her husband, Ted Hicks; her daughters, Katie Woolard (Austin), of Greenville, N.C., Meridith Burke (Andrew Layton), of Surf City, N.C., and Bailey Hahn (Tim), of Huntersville, N.C.; and her grandchildren, Kylie, Delainey, Bentley, Max, Huntley, Olivia, and Bruce.

Cheryl spent most of her life being a dedicated wife and mother. Homemaker, however, would be an understatement. She was an incredibly talented cook, seamstress, and artist, or as her girls say, a magician.

If you could dream it, Cheryl could do it. Her true craft was creating beauty and fun everywhere she went, with the only accepted form of payment being a smile on her loved ones’ faces.

Visitation for Cheryl will be held on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, from 12 noon until 1 p.m., at Bunch-Johnson Funeral Home. Her memorial service will follow at 1 p.m. with Tad Taylor officiating.

The family will be wearing pink in honor of Cheryl. If you would like to accent your attire to follow suit, please feel free.
