Cheryl Ann Holland
April 24, 1948 ~ May 20, 2023

Cheryl Ann Holland, 75, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 20, 2023 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She was a resident of Rossville, Georgia at the time of her death. Cheryl was born on April 24, 1948 in Jonesville, Louisiana to the late Lloyd and Christine (Ford) Holland.

Cheryl was a graduate of Block High School in Jonesville and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. An educator for 25 years, she taught middle-school English as a Second Language in Lafayette for 15 years prior to relocating to Georgia to be closer to her daughter. She retired from New Hope Middle School in Whitfield County in 2018.

One of her greatest joys and the thing she looked forward to as each school year progressed, was her summer travel adventures. Cheryl traveled the continental United States and took great care in sharing the beauty of our country with her friends on social media each summer. For many years, she traveled with her long-time companion, Bob, on the back of his Harley.

She was preceded in death by her son, John Gibbs, father Lloyd Holland, mother Christine Ford Holland, brothers Gerald and Edwin Holland, and nephew Justin Holland.

Cheryl is survived by her daughter Kristi Gibbs and grandsons Daniel and Harrison Smith all of Atlanta, Georgia; companion Bob Fremin of Canton, Georgia; brother James Holland and wife Sandra of Parhams, Louisiana; sister Barbara Holland of St. Francisville, Louisiana; niece Shannon Zerber and husband Derek of Houston, Texas; nephew Waylon Holland of Parhams; and two great-nieces, Mallory and Blair Zerber of Houston.
