Shirley ‘Cheryl’ Ann Bigham


Shirley “Cheryl” Ann Bigham, 72, of Cleveland, was surrounded by her loved ones as she went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022.

She was born on Feb. 17, 1950, to the late Richard and Ruth White in Manheim, Pennsylvania. She was a graduate of Manheim Central High School, where she was a cheerleader and on the track and field team.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Steve White.

She had a strong faith in God and knew Him as her personal Savior. She was a member of Echoes of Mercy Baptist Church. She was selfless and courageous, a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend until the very end. Cheryl was a big Atlanta Braves and Tennessee Vols football fan. Her greatest joy in life was her family; everything she did, she did with them in mind. This is not goodbye, it’s just see you later. She will always be on our minds and forever in our hearts.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her husband, Wayne Bigham; daughter, Janet (Mike) Nichols; stepsons, Cotton (Renee) Bigham and Jimmy Bigham; grandchildren, Tanner Renfro (Laranda Lawson), Raegan Nichols, Taylor Bigham, Kassie (Seth) Trimble and Karissa (Charlie) Brown; great-grandchildren, Tate Renfro, Jayce Bigham, Jensen O’Daniel, Lilly Trimble, Braedon Rogers and Conway Brown; sisters, Sue (Frank) Kowalski, Donna (Kevin) Stauffer and Sharon White, all of Pennsylvania; brothers, Ronnie White, Dennis White and Tom (Dawn) White, all of Pennsylvania; and numerous extended family members and friends.

A Celebration of Cheryl’s Life will be held at a later date.
