The early morning of August 25th, 2021 our mother and
grandmother peacefully passed away in her sleep. She was
born on June 19th, 1959 on a military base in Virginia to Ervin
Holmin and Doris Finnegan. She grew up in a military family
with her three siblings. Tucson, Arizona was where she would
have loved to live her life, but she moved; remaining the rest
of her life as a resident in Northern Utah. She graduated from
high school in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1977. She married
Douglas Anderson in Ogden, Utah (where they later
divorced); there they raised their family.
Mom loved her rock-n-roll blaring and long drives through the
mountains. She was a spit fire soul, a determined woman and
a protecting mother. She was proud of her Irish heritage and
was a huge supporter of our U.S. military. She was happiest
and most complete when she was just laughing with her
seven grandchildren and cuddling with her pets.
Mom was having declining health the last few years. She was
battling diabetes and kidney failure. She fought through all
the infections, surgeries, viruses and kept her head up the
entire time and looked forward to the future.
She deeply cared for her family and will be greatly missed by
those that knew her.
Cheryl is survived by her daughters Jessie Anderson and
Mandy Anderson. Her grandchildren Alexander, Kaylene,
Jaylynn, Zoey, Nolan, Steven Jr. and Emmett. Also; her
She is proceeded in death by her parents, daughter Michelle
