It is with great sadness that the family of Cheryl Anne Hord announces her passing after a brief illness on March 6, 2020 at the age of 72 in Boca Raton, FL. Cheryl Engle was born June 29, 1947 in Bad Axe, MI. The daughter of the late Carlton and Phyllis (Currie) Engle, was a graduate of the University of Michigan in 1969 with a BA in English.

On August 23, 1969 the former Cheryl Engle was united in marriage with Joel Hord in Michigan sharing more than 50 years in companionship and love. Cheryl and Joel moved to Boca Raton, FL once Joel had graduated from dental school.  Cheryl went on to write for a local magazine, worked as a legal secretary and then as the Practice Manager for Joel’s dental practice for over 35 years. Cheryl was well suited as practice manager due to her love of people and joy of life.

Cheryl will be lovingly remembered by her husband Joel; two children and spouses, Paul Hord of Delray Beach, FL, Christy Dawson and her husband James ; grandchildren Dante Dawson and baby girl Dawson (unborn) of Tampa, FL; two siblings, Richard Engle of Fort Gratiot, MI and sister Marilyn Wood of Charlevoix, MI ; and nieces and nephews.
