Cheryl Ann Johnson, 78, of St. Albans, WV, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 29, 2023, at Hubbard Hospice House of Charleston, WV.
She was born on January 10, 1945, to the late James W. and Freda M. St. Clair in Charleston.
Cheryl was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a graduate of Charleston High, class of 1962. Cheryl started a career at C&P Telephone at the age of 17 and worked for 30 years, retiring at the age of 47. Her next career was the most rewarding of all, as she became the official family nurturer, a role that she truly cherished.
Cheryl is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Sterling Johnson; children, Betsy Martin (Jeff) and Brittanie Fuller; grandchildren, Jessica Adkins, Dylan Adkins, Steven Martin, Holly Martin, Jillian Fuller, and Noelle Fuller; great-grandchildren, Henry Adkins and Davey Martin; brothers, Jimmy (Tootie) St. Clair of Georgia, Mike (Mary) St. Clair of Georgia, Steve (Nikki) St. Clair of Charleston, Kirk St. Clair of Charleston; sister, Patti (Lee) Trail of Georgia; step-mother and friend, Louise St. Clair; nieces and nephews, Jay, Taylor, Whitney, Kristin, Corey, Ben, Sara, Savanna, Gage, and Kampton.
She was preceded in death by her beloved brother, Harry Kenton St. Clair, and favorite son-in-law, Steve Martin.
Cheryl requested a special gathering “in the summer” up on “the hill” to celebrate her life. The private gathering will be held at a later date.
