Cheryl R. Messerschmidt

December 3, 1958 — October 11, 2023

Cheryl R. Messerschmidt, 64 of Oshkosh, passed away at her home surrounded by family on Wednesday, October 11, 2023. She was born on December 3, 1958 to the late Gerald and Donna (Schmidt) Hawley. On February 7, 1975 Cheryl was united in marriage to Kevin Messerschmidt at the Pickett Church, and together raised three sons.

She worked as a radiology technician for 43 years at Aurora and Mercy Medical Centers. Cheryl loved spending time with her family and was especially proud of being a grandma. She enjoyed being in her yard, tending to her flowers, gardening, and canning her harvests each season. Cheryl loved camping trips with family, sewing, cooking, and baking sweet treats for all to enjoy.

Cheryl is lovingly survived by her husband, Kevin Messerschmidt; sons, Michael, Matthew (Renee) and Joshua (Shonda) Messerschmidt; grandchildren, Billy, Cameron, Aubrey, Eddie, Luke, Parker and Reid. She is further survived by several siblings, in-laws, and fur babies, Willow and Blossom.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her father-and-mother-in-law, Clark “Nook” and Betty Messerschmidt.

A celebration of life will be held for family and friends in June of 2024.

A heartfelt thank you goes to Gracie, numerous friends, family and neighbors who visited, brought food and gifts, and showed their support in countless ways. Thank you also to Compassus Hospice for the compassionate care provided to Cheryl during her most difficult times.
