Cheryle Alice Metzler (nee Bradley)

Feb 16, 1948 – May 1, 2018
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Cheryle Alice Metzler. She passed away at Calgary’s Foothills Hospital with her family by her side. She will be dearly missed and forever loved.

Cheryle was born in Trail BC to George (Ted) and Emma Bradley and was the fourth of five children. She met her husband, Jim, in 1964 and they married August 10, 1968 and shortly thereafter settled in Rossland. They had two daughters, Christy and Shelley and five years ago were blessed with the joy of her life, grandson Mattias. In 1990 Cheryle and her family moved to Warfield to live and plan for their retirement where they have lived ever since.

Cheryle worked both full time and part time for Cominco. As a part time employee she worked in most of the departments at one time or another. In doing so she met and befriended many fellow employees. She remained friends with several after retirement. She particularly enjoyed her 2-3 hour lunches with her dear friend Dianne. Grandchildren seemed to be the topic of choice.

Cheryle enjoyed gardening, reading, and retirement and in earlier days camping and fishing with her family and friends. Cheryle is survived by her husband Jim, daughters Christy and Shelley (Lyle) and the love of her life, grandson Mattias. Also left to mourn are her sister Janice (Wayne) Kissick, brothers Terry (Tanis) Bradley and Dale (Christine) Bradley as well as several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents George (Ted) and Emma Bradley and the Cooper family, sister Marilyn (Dave) and their children Sharon, Brad and Derek.

The family would like to thank the teams of nurses and doctors in the oncology department and ICU at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary for their valiant efforts and compassion in their vain attempts to save her from Clostridium difficile infection.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Her Life will be held later, at a date to be announced.

As an expression of sympathy donations may be made to the Trail Stroke and Heart Foundation or Canadian Cancer Society.
