Cheri Ann Sattler, age 51, of Chilton, died on Friday, December 26, 2014 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton. She was born August 16, 1963 in Manitowoc, daughter of Kenneth & Mary Ann (Christianson) Thone. Following her graduation from college, Cheri took the four required exams at the same time to become the youngest female CPA in Wisconsin. In 1984, Cheri began working as a CPA for Jonet & Fountain. It was during this time she married Darren Sattler on June 9, 1984 at St. Augustine Catholic Church.

She was a member of Ebenezer UCC in Chilton, the Chilton Optimist Club, Wisconsin CPA Association, proudly celebrated 25 years of dedicated service to the Chilton Tip-Top 4-H Club and through the encouragement of her daughter, Cheri recently became a Certified WIAA Volleyball Referee. Cheri was always a go-getter; whatever needed to be done, Cheri did it with a positive attitude and loving smile. In the course of the hustle of life, Cheri always made sure to enjoy life to its fullest. She looked forward to time spent painting, woodcarving, tending to her flower garden, tending to her sheep, and traveling up north to the cabin where she could relax the day away fishing. It also wasn’t uncommon for her to be, in her free time, planning a surprise for someone who was about to have a milestone of life on the horizon. Above all that life had to offer, Cheri especially appreciated family and friends around her. She was always so good to the people God had put in her life and enjoyed giving of herself to make them happy.
