Cherryl was preceded in death by her parents, Otis Franklin Pennell and Gladys Williams; her husband, Roger Dale Blair; her son, Bobby Glenn Blair; and her brothers, Novice and Joe Pennell.
She is survived by her sons, Robby Dale Blair of Midland, Texas and his children, Brooke Blair, Meagan Blair, Brendan Blair, and Marcley Norton; and Shad Franklin Blair, wife Rachel, and their children, Joseph Glenn and Franklin Mack of Austin, Texas; grandchildren, Macy Buchanan of Fort Worth, Texas and Vance Blair of Cedar Park, Texas; and sisters, Linda Riley of Melrose, New Mexico and Maritta Reed of Justiceberg, Texas.
Cherryl was born on July 29, 1949 in Post, Texas. She graduated from Post High School in 1967 and went on to attend South Plains College before marrying Roger Dale Blair on October
23, 1970. They welcomed heir twins, Robby Dale and Bobby Glenn, in 1971, and Shad Franklin in
1977. Cherryl was a track star in high school and loved basketball, horseback riding, hunting, music, and dancing.
She dedicated her life to family, friends, and her career in the West Texas oil and gas industry, specifically pipeline construction and
maintenance. She was funny, honest, real, caring, and an incredibly hard worker. She deeply loved her friends, family, and Jesus.
Cherryl’s children would like to especially thank their Aunt Maritta for her loving care and tireless efforts in assisting their mother in
her final days. They have never seen a fiercer love than what they saw demonstrated for her little sister before she passed.
