Her family writes, "Cheri's mission in life was to help other people to help themselves. She worked for more than 25 years as an aerobics instructor, personal fitness trainer, and yoga instructor, but to those who knew her, she was so much more. To many people Cheri was their drill instructor, mental health counselor, and most of all their friend. The loss of this amazing person will be felt by many and mourned by all that knew her, especially her family."
Mrs. Woods is survived by her husband, Michael Woods; daughters, Charlotte LaDuke, Serena Woods-Grimm, and Marci Woods; and her only grandchild Sierra LaDuke.
