Cheryl Reagan Leeds of Newark

Cheryl Reagan Leeds, 58, of Newark, died suddenly on Thursday, Sept. 28, at her residence. She was the wife of Norman D. Leeds, Jr. “Doug” with whom she shared 30 loving years of marriage. She will be greatly missed by her beloved children Stephen Douglas Leeds of Wilmington, and Alexandra Reagan Leeds of Newark.

Born in West Chester, she was the daughter of Janet Walter Reagan of Hockessin, and the late Charles B. Reagan Jr.

Cheryl was a registered nurse, working at Christiana Care, Visiting Nurses Association, retiring in 2016, after 33 years of service.

With her contagious laugh and vibrant stories, she was the light that filled the room. She has made many loyal friends and spent a great deal of time enjoying them over a glass of Chardonnay. She took great pleasure in cooking gourmet meals and entertaining. It is hard to believe that her heart faltered since her compassion, generosity and love for others was so strong.

She was preceded in death by her brother, the late Thomas A. Reagan of Atlanta, Ga.

In addition to her husband, children and mother, she is also survived by one brother, Steven M. Reagan of Atlanta, Ga., one sister, Linda C. Reagan of Hockessin, one uncle, Dennis W Reagan Sr. of Bear, one aunt, Sandra R. Broadhead of Freemansburg, Pa., and several nieces and nephews.
