Cheryl Bench had a passion for health care and reached her education goals before her passing by receiving her PH.D. in clinical/depth psychology.
Cheryl was born in Pendleton, Oregon, in 1956. Her family later moved to Southern California where she met and married Bill Bench. Together they moved back to Pendleton where she continued her education by receiving a master’s degree from Walla Walla University.
In 2004, they moved to Santa Barbara with son David. Cheryl worked for Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care in Santa Barbara for 11 years and later for Hospice of Santa Barbara. She completed her Ph.D at Pacifica University.
Cheryl will be remembered by all who knew her for her kind and gentle heart and generous nature. She loved being on the water and caring for all animal friends.
The family wishes to thank Sarah House for her excellent care. Service is pending. Donations can be made to Sarah House in her honor.
She will be greatly missed by her son David and all who knew her. Please contact David at: email@example.com
