WESLACO - Cheryl A. Clark-Way passed away on Saturday, May 12, 2018, exactly six years after her late husband and one true love, Don.

Cheryl was born on May 3rd, 1946 in Alton, Illinois to Cletis Glenn Clark and Anna Vera Wright Clark. She spent most of her childhood in Roxana, Illinois, where she was a star athlete. Cheryl was raised with her two older brothers, Randy and Larry, and she learned to keep up at a young age. The effort served her well and she became a great softball player, earning, along with her team, the Alton Lakers. the State Championship Title in softball. They were second in the world that year and Cheryl was hooked. She was a devoted, die hard, St. Louis Cardinals fan her entire life.

Cheryl went to work for the US Post Office as an adult, which is where she met her true love, Don Way, who was working as a Postmaster. They were married in 1986 and with Don's encouragement and support, Cheryl too became a US Postmaster, where she spent her entire career.

Cheryl and Don were able to retire in 2003 and began spending winters in Weslaco, Texas, at Trails End Park. They enjoyed traveling all over the United States in their motor home. They spent a lot of time fishing, camping and hunting, which they both loved dearly. Cheryl was an ideal partner and enjoyed the outdoors as much as Don did.

Cheryl will always be remembered for her generous nature. She did not have children of her own, but she treated her nieces and nephews like her own, never asking for anything in return. She was the most loving and kind aunt the kids could have asked for.

Above all, Cheryl was a true Child of God. She was a faithful member of The First Christian Church in Wood River, Illinois. She served selflessly, giving of her time, spirit and gifts.

Cheryl is preceded in death by her parents, Cletis and Anna Wright and the love of her life, Don Way.

She is survived by her brothers, Randy R. Clark and his wife, Virginia, and Larry Clark, both of Roxana, Illinois, step-children, Don Jr. and Larry Way, two step-grandchildren, numerous nephews, nieces, and adopted children.
