Cheri was raised in Odessa Texas and after graduating high school she traveled to New Mexico and settled back in Dallas. She worked her way through the ranks in banking until she was an executive with Bank of America. It was during this time that she met the love of her life Larry Tedder. With a profound love for people and wanting a career change she and Larry entered the field of furniture sales. She, with Larry, traveled the U.S. meeting and helping scores of people and she would be able to tell you what they did for a living, their children’s and pets names, and what she assisted them with, and that through that small transaction she would have countless new friends and stories.
Cheri and Larry came to settle in the fertile valley of Phoenix where they continued to sell furniture and continually make new friends. Larry passed in 2006 and Cheri devoted her attention to her brother as well as her children and grandchildren until she went to be with him again earlier this week.
