Cheryl Noeline Kirby

Cheryl Noeline Kirby

December 25, 1945 ~ July 27, 2023

Cheryl Noeline Kirby, lovingly known as Cherie, peacefully passed away on July 27, 2023, at the age of 77 in Lake Worth, Florida. Born on December 25, 1945, in Palisades Park, New Jersey, Cherie’s life was a beautiful mixture of love, compassion, and cherished moments that will forever remain etched in the hearts of those who knew her. Cherie was preceded in death by her parents, Josephine (Nanny) and Fredrick Steeger (Pop Pop), as well as her beloved sister, Sandra Bobbs. Though her absence leaves a void in the lives of her loved ones, Cherie’s legacy of love and kindness continues to inspire and guide them. Throughout her life, Cherie dedicated herself to caring for others. She pursued her passion for nursing allowing her to provide comfort and healing to countless individuals. Her gentle touch and warm smile brought solace to those in need, leaving an indelible impact on the lives she touched. In addition to her accomplished career, Cherie cultivated a multitude of interests and hobbies. Her natural grace and love for expression found an outlet in dance, where she transcended ordinary movements and transformed them into captivating stories. Whether twirling across a dance floor or gracefully swaying alone in her living room, Cherie’s every step exuded joy and a zest for life. Music served as an ever-present companion throughout Cherie’s journey. Each melodic note resonated deep within her soul, igniting a passion that captivated all who knew her. Whether she was attending concerts or simply enjoying her favorite tunes at home, Cherie found solace and inspiration in the unique power of music. Cherie’s love affair with the beach spanning her entire life was a testament to her connection with the world’s natural wonders. The soothing rhythm of crashing waves and the feel of warm sand beneath her feet provided a sense of peace and tranquility that nourished her spirit. The beach symbolized a space where Cherie could harmonize with the beauty of nature and reflect on the endless possibilities that life offered. Books served as gateways to Cherie’s imagination and expanded her horizons. She devoured literature, losing herself within the pages that transported her to distant lands and introduced her to an array of captivating characters. Cherie’s thirst for knowledge was unquenchable, and she embraced every opportunity to broaden her understanding of the world. Cherie’s empathetic nature and unwavering passion for assisting others truly set her apart. She possessed an innate ability to embrace the joys and sorrows of those around her, providing unwavering support in their times of need. Her generosity, both in tangible acts of kindness and heartfelt gestures, touched many lives and left an indelible mark on the hearts of those who knew her. Beyond her personal commitments, Cherie made remarkable contributions to her community and society. She recognized the significance of animals in bringing joy and love to our lives. Cherishing her feline companions, she championed local animal shelters and rescue organizations, tirelessly advocating for the welfare of all creatures. Cherie’s unwavering love and dedication to animals serve as a testament to her selfless character and compassion for all living beings. A service celebrating Cherie’s extraordinary life will be held on September 9, 2023, at Murry Hills located at 3240 Cynthia Lane in Lake Worth, Florida. Family and friends are warmly invited to join between 1-4pm to share cherished memories, exchange stories, and bid farewell to a remarkable woman whose influence was far-reaching and everlasting. Left to cherish her memory are her three loving children: Joe Kirby IV and Sonja, Scott and his wife Dana, and Jennifer Schwartz and her husband Andrew, former husband Joseph Kirby III. Cherie’s precious grandchildren, Tori Kennerley, Joey Kirby V, and Tyler Kirby will forever treasure the moments they shared with their adored grandmother. The impact of Cherie’s love and compassion cannot be measured. Her memory will forever reside within the hearts of those who had the honor of knowing and loving her. As we reflect on Cherie’s life, let us carry her spirit with us, embracing empathy and kindness towards all beings, just as she so beautifully exemplified.
Cherie Noeline Kirby, or “Cherie” as she was affectionately known, will forever be remembered for her boundless love, innate generosity, and unwavering care for others. Her vibrant spirit lives on, illuminating our lives and inspiring us to create a more compassionate world.

Please accept my deepest condolences to Cheryl’s family. Cheryl and I used to laugh together about how I saved her name in my phone’s contact list as Cheryl, Beach Chick. She was a fun-loving beach buddy.

I hope cherishing the loving memories stated will bring peace and smiles to Cherie’s family and friends. I still remember the day I met “cool” Cherie when her family moved to Palm Springs, the beginning of our friendship. Fondly, Marsha Gilbert.

So sorry to hear this. I know you must all be devastated, because she loved all her family so much. We had wonderful times in Pal Park and were “close to cousins”. Our grandfathers (Dominic Casamento and Mr. Ravese) spent a lot of time together hunting in Northport (??) Long Island. I don’t know if they were related or just “paisons” from the same part of Italy. My husband Jim and I had lunch with Cherie and Billy two times that we had been in Florida for winter vacations. The last time I saw her was a few years ago when she was visiting Phyllis and we (and some other friends) had lunch at the Shore. Happy times, so long ago, but friends for such a long time, too. She had a beautiful smile and a beautiful heart. She will be missed.
