Cheryl Buwe Hingle passed away suddenly on Sunday, August 29 at her home. Born in 1948 in New Orleans, she was the daughter of the late Nicholas Cyril and Emma Will Buwe. Cheryl was predeceased by her husband Boyd "Buddy" Hingle and her sister, Karen Buwe Dietz. Cheryl is survived by her son, Benjamin Allen Hingle; his wife, Cynthia Lail Hingle; and their children, Nicholas Alexander (Alex) and Elizabeth Anne (Beth), all of Rock Hill, SC. She is additionally survived by her sister, Susan Buwe Butzman of Metairie, La., and numerous nieces and nephews. Cheryl was a vital and memorable woman, who made a difference wherever she was. For more than 30 years, Cheryl worked at Winthrop University, starting at the Campus Police office and moving soon to the English department and then to University College to assist the dean. She was an astonishing administrative assistant, welcoming visitors and colleagues with her big smile and accomplishing her work with speed and accuracy. Cheryl could help run an academic conference as easily as she could type up a paper for a faculty member. She was always willing to go beyond what was required, and she was deeply missed when she retired several years ago.
Cheryl had circles of friends in numerous areas?her quilting buddies, her band mom companions, her book club readers, and her fellow church members at St. Anne's Catholic Church. If the church doors were open for Adoration, she was there every Thursday during her lunch hour. There was absolutely nothing that she could not create with her sewing machine, and her quilts are works of art. But her greatest joy was her family. Ben was the light of her life, and he and Cindy gave her two additional gifts?Alex and Beth. Cheryl loved picking the children up from school, taking them to get their after-school snacks, and having "spend the night with Nana" evenings.
Cheryl leaves behind many who will cherish her presence in their lives, will remember her help and care-taking, and will miss her smile and enthusiastic laughter. Our lives are better because she was a part of it.
