LOWELLVILLE, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Cheryl Ann Zappia, 58 of Lowellville, Ohio.
On Friday, August 7, 2020 God called this angel to Heaven where her frail body was made whole again and she was relieved of all pain, worry and suffering. She is now in Heaven showing all the other angels her grandkids, all of whom she was so proud of and watching over us that remain. On her last day on earth, she told her husband, Steve that she loved each and every one of us and if she didn’t come back, she would see him again in Heaven. A promise that we know she will keep. Although the world is not a better place without her, Steve is a better person for having her for this brief time as his beautiful, loving wife!
