In loving memory of

Cherie Marie Toner
December 5, 1965 - February 17, 2021

Cherie Toner, 55, of Middletown, Rhode Island, passed away unexpectedly on February 17, 2021 at home.

Cherie was born in Newport, RI to Helen (Toner) Albro. She was a light to everyone that knew her and will be missed by so many. A 1983 graduate of Rogers High School, she then went on to spend many years working at the Newport Navy Base as a contractor.

Cherie loved family over anything else, but to her, family was not just blood it extended to her many close friends that she shared so many adventures with. Her grandchildren were the light of her life and she took every opportunity to talk about them. Her smile, wit, and adventurous spirit will be missed by anyone that was blessed to know her.

Cherie is survived by her son Michael Rogers and his fiancee Jennifer Evans, her brother, Michael Toner and his wife Sherri, and her sister Kimberly Dizon. She will also be missed by her grandchildren, Markis and Mya Rogers, and her nieces and nephews, Michael Toner, Jr., Emily Toner, Adrianna Dizon, Austin Dizon, AJ Dizon, and Alex Dizon, and her great niece and nephew Aimee and Noah Dizon. Cherie also leaves behind her caring and loving life-long friend, Debbie Peckham.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Helen Albro and her grandmother, Grace Toner and can now spend her time over the rainbow with the women she admired most.

A graveside service will be held on Thursday, February 25 at 11:00am at St. Columba Catholic Cemetery, Brown's Lane, Middletown, RI.

Memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 7023

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. I still can not believe this is real! There was nothing more important to her then her family.

"Prayers for strength to Cherie\'s family and friends. Having worked with her for almost 15 years, I considered her way more than a co-worker, she was a friend. I\'ll remember our conversations and lunches, she was always there for me when I needed a listening ear. Her love for her grandchildren as well as her nieces and nephews was clear, and I know she was so proud of the young adults they have become. Cherie was a genuine and giving woman, and her family should be so proud of her. She will be deeply missed by so many. "

"Cherie you are much loved by everyone. I remember you growing up from young girl with a mind of your own to a woman who had a will of her own. You learned from the best your mom, nana Grace, from your aunties Anne and Miggie. You are a loving mother and nana sister and an auntie. To us you are a loving and much loved niece. We had a lot of great times. You are a beautiful soul you will be missed but we will all meet again. Rest in peace in the arms of God. Love you, Aunt Teri and Uncle Joe "
