Cheryl Alicia Sealey White

The loving family of Cheryl Alicia Sealey White announces the end of her beautiful and productive journey on Saturday, May 14, 2022, in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, at the age of 74.

“A limb has fallen from the family tree that says, grieve not for me. Remember the best times, the dancing, the laughter, the beautiful life I lived while I was strong.”

Our beloved mother, sister and aunt Cheryl was born March 14, 1948, in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. As a child, she attended Leonard Dober, Abraham Lincoln, and Charlotte Amalie High School, receiving her high school diploma in 1966. She also enrolled in business courses at College of the Virgin Islands. As an adult, Cheryl held several jobs, to include Lucy’ Supermarket, East End Taxi Stand as the friendly dispatcher, and the Virgin Islands Health Department’s Maternal Child Health Clinic where she retired after 26 years of dedicated service. Cheryl was known for her altruism and her kindness and concern that she invariably showed too others.

Cheryl is survived by her children, Sharon P. Stevens-Brown, Laverne L. Francis, and Tricia D. Sealey; siblings, Charles A. White Jr., Celestino A.
