Cheryl Gray

April 26, 1957 — May 10, 2021

Cheryl Sue Gray, age 64, of Ozark, Missouri, went to be with the Lord on Monday, May 10th, 2021. Cheryl was born April 26th, 1957 in Springfield, Missouri to Alvin and Ola Hannah. Cheryl graduated from Ozark High School in 1975. She married the love of her life, Steven Gray, on April 22nd, 1977. They met cruising the Ozark Square. She worked in her early years as a secretary for Commercial Data Systems. Cheryl always dreamed of being a wife and a mother. Cheryl is a walking miracle. She was born with a congenital heart defect and has had three major heart surgeries. The doctors told her she probably could not have children. They told her the strain of childbirth had a high probability of causing her heart to work too hard. Steven and Cheryl tried and prayed for a child for nine years before they found out they were pregnant with their oldest, Charity Graif. Then four years later, the Lord brought them a second miracle, a baby boy, Nicholas Gray. Cheryl attended Selmore Baptist Church and was an active member the entirety of her life. She loved her church family dearly. Cheryl worked as the secretary there for 16 years. She was also the organist for over 30 years. She was a faithful servant of the Lord and continually offered a listening ear and prayed with and for whoever walked through the church doors. All who knew her, loved her. Cheryl deeply loved all her friends and family and enjoyed spending time with them. She loved supporting them in every possible way. Survivors include her husband, Steven Gray; children Charity (Jonathan) Graif and Nicholas Gray; siblings Rick (Donna) Hannah and Trisha (Doug) Stockton. The family would like to thank all of her caretakers, especially Dr. Stanley Wiggins (Cheryl’s cardiologist) of over 30 years for taking exceptional care of her all these years. Visitation will be Friday, May 14th, 2021 from 10am-11:30am. The Celebration of Life Service will be Friday, May 14, 11:30am at Selmore Baptist Church with Rev. Josh Hall and Rev. Mac McCully officiating. A graveside service will follow in Selmore Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of Adams Funeral Home, Ozark.
