Cheri was born Cheryl Lynn Woolsey on May 23, 1964, to Dick and Charlene (Cash) Woolsey at Mary Lanning Memorial Hospital. She graduated from Hastings Senior High School in 1983 and met her partner and spouse of 34 years in 1984. Cheri worked at Marshalltown Instruments and Perkins Pavilion. She lived in Widefield, Colorado from 1987 to 1992, graduating from Blair Junior College of Colorado Springs in 1989 with a diploma in Front Office Medical work. Cheri married Michael Duane Hartman on May 21, 1993. She worked as a nursing assistant for nearly a decade, as a deli worker at Russ’s Market for eight years, and as a cook, clerk, or manager of the deli at Allen’s Superstore for the last eleven years.

Cheri’s children were her primary concern, raising three sons and helping with three stepsons. She was a true connoisseur of television and liked history, documentaries, old musicals, and movies. Cheri enjoyed many pastimes; she loved the holidays, playing Scrabble, and solving puzzle games on paper or the internet, but her favorite interest of all was sports, especially Husker football and women’s volleyball.

Cheri is survived by her husband; parents of Pueblo West, CO; children, Ryan Woolsey, Eric (Becca) Woolsey, and Jacob (Jamie) Hartman all of Hastings, NE; stepsons, Michael Dale Hartman of Lincoln, NE, Martin Hartman and fiancée Deanna Rolfe of Papillion, NE, and Matthew (Misty) Hartman of Lincoln, NE; sister and brother-in-law, Sandra and Dyrk Martinez of Falcon, CO; nieces, Alyssa (Seth) Burgess of Greeley, CO, and Kayla Martinez of Manitou Springs, CO; mother-in-law, Colleen Hartman of Hastings, NE; step-grandchildren, Kaylene, Jocelyn, Aubree, Autumn, and Ashlee Hartman, Michael Dale Hartman, Jr., Abagail Terry, and Ocean Rolfe all of Lincoln, NE; a maternal uncle; several aunts; a grandniece; a grandnephew; along with numerous cousins and in-laws.

Cheri was preceded in death by her grandparents, Dean and Doris Woolsey, Charles Sr. and Eloris Cash; uncles, Gary “Skip” Woolsey and Charles Cash, Jr.; and father-in-law, Duane Hartman.
