Linda Cheryl Ponder Obituary

Linda Cheryl Yates Ponder, 79, passed away on December 2, 2023. She was the wife of the late Joseph Lee Ponder and the daughter of the late Lemual Walker Jr. and Freddie Opal Walker.

Cheryl was a retired public school teacher who taught at Chesnee High School for her entire career. She touched the lives of many of her students who continue to call her their favorite teacher. She was an avid reader who loved to enjoy the latest bestsellers and share her thoughts on them with friends. She was an animal lover who spent countless hours bird watching, caring for her pets, and making sure that she logged into freekibble for the day. Her children and grandchildren will remember her as a feisty,  quick witted woman who  cared deeply for her family and others. In addition to her family, she leaves behind a tribe of friends who will miss her dearly.

She is survived by a son, Richard Ponder; a daughter, Carla P. Jolley, and her husband, Chris; grandchildren, William Campbell Jolley and Daylan Ponder Jolley; a nephew, Christopher B. Yates, and his wife, Cathleen; and her beloved dog, Emma.

Cheryl is predeceased by a brother, Walter Kenny Yates III.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at Bobo Funeral Chapel from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The funeral service will follow at Bobo Funeral Chapel at 4:00 PM. Rev. Lee Roper will be conducting the service.
