Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Cherre Lynn Miller, 75, passed away peacefully, with daughters by her side, on Friday, Nov. 11th, 2016 in Kansas City, MO. She was born in Fresno, California in 1941 and lived most of her life in the Kansas City area. She is preceded in death by her mother, Cherrelyn Meek and father, J. Clay Hendricks. She is survived by her two daughters, Lorie Hartley (husband Ron) of Parkville, and Robin Anderson of Shawnee; her sister, Trish Delich (husband Fred) of KCMO, and her grandchildren Spencer and Taylor Hartley.
Cherre graduated from Wyandotte High School in 1959 and worked as a legal secretary over the next 45 years for private law firms in KCK and KCMO. Cherre was an excellent cook and was known for her specialty dishes such as lasagna at Christmas and blueberry pie on July 4th. She had a prolific green thumb and maintained a houseful of large, gorgeous house plants worthy of commercial scale and quality. She was a talented, skilled seamstress who made her own clothes, the girls’ clothes and Easter dresses during their childhood, and curtains for their homes during their adult years. Cherre had impeccable taste in clothes, art, and furniture which were reflected in her own style and her surroundings. Cherre’s friends and family would all agree that Cherre was quite a character and there was never a dull moment when she was in the room. She was a lively spirit!
Cherre was an animal lover who adopted rescue dogs and cats as her pets over the years. The family welcomes remembrance contributions to Wayside Waifs, Kansas City Sheltie Rescue, or the animal shelter of your choice.
