She was born January 1, 1954 at Sandia Base Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico to parents Aron and Bernadine Hankins. She graduated from Gallup High School, Gallup, New Mexico with the class of 1972. In 1976, she married her best friend, Charles Minshull. They would have one child, Charles Minshull, Jr. in 1980 while deployed in Athens, Greece. Cheryl was a loving mother, and dedicated spouse.
