Foote (Maglio), Cheryl

October 17, 1958 - November 20, 2019

Obituary

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Cheryl Maglio-Foote on Wednesday November 20, 2019 after a battle with Dementia. She was born in Nelson on October 17, 1958 and that is where her heart remained. As a fixture of the community, she attended LV Rogers School, before moving onto several jobs in town. From an A&W roller girl, to Hood’s bakery, to the Credit Union, to Quality Produce, Cowan’s Office Supply and finally finishing up her career at the Nelson Star, she was a visible figure in the Kootenays. She embodied what it was to be from Nelson – she was hearty, full of love and had a spirit of determination. Her warmth and unbridled commitment to her friends and family will be sadly missed.

 She leaves behind her three daughters Erica, Ashley and Alyssa and their spouses; her grandchildren: Ethan, Beau and Riley; her brothers John, Terry and Glenn; her sister Lynn; her Step-Mother Marilyn and hundreds of close friends and loved ones. However,  she joins her father, John Maglio and her beloved mother, Phyllis Stevens.  Special thank you to Pat, Catherine, Glenda, Terry, Shauna, Jenn, Rod, and all those who spent countless hours by her bedside in her final years. Mountain Lakes provided high quality care and their classy send-off where the entire staff gathered to see her leave the facility will remain in our hearts forever. 

 As a tribute to Cheryl, who was famous for her hugs, laughter and love of socializing around a warm cup of tea, please hold a loved one close, phone a friend you haven’t spoken to in awhile and savour a cup of tea. When you do that, she is there with you. 

 Cheryl loved unconditionally and sacrificed a great deal for her friends, family and loved ones. She will be intensely missed.  As an ardent fan of Elton John, and a person who loved everyone for who they were, she reminded us “how wonderful life is while you’re in the world.” But to a beautiful mother, a loving friend and an amazing woman, we would love to remind her of “A Candle in the Wind.” Specifically,  where Elton John sang “Your candle’s burned out long before your legend ever will.”

 We love you Mom. 

A Celebration of Life will be held in the early summer and will be announced at a later date.

Relation: Quality Produce and the crew

I worked with Cheryl at Quality Produce years ago, and she was always smiling even when she was cursing at the drivers. She was a warm hearted friend who I have missed for awhile. I stopped in for a visit while she was at Mt. Lakes but she didn’t recognize me back then. My heart and thoughts are with all three of you and your families during this difficult time. Warm hugs to you. With much love.

It was at Cowan’s that I got to know Cheryl, and was struck by her caring, thoughtful, and good-natured heart. She will be missed. My love goes out to the family.

From: Marilyn Ostryznik
Relation: tea time friend

Dear Erica, Ashley and Alyssa: the loving obituary written, honouring your much loved Mom, is extra-ordinary. The tributes brought tears plus laughter. Could picture a smile on your Mom’s face. Well-done Cheryl, giving family and friends these warm memories. Enjoyed our tea time with you, many times over, at Pat and Catherine’s.

From: Arlene and Michael McMillin
Relation: neighbour and friend

We came to know Cheryl when she lived at the same condo as us. Always so friendly, helpful, organized, … full of life. We missed her when she moved on….and now we see from the great obituary and all the heart felt comments, how much she meant to so very many people of Nelson and beyond. Blessings to her family and friends as they come to know life in a different way.

From: Lawrence Kosiancic
Relation: I have been a frend of the family for years

I am very sorry to hear of Cheryl’s passing and want to offer my condolences to her family
