We are sad to announce this morning that Bill Pickett’s wife Cheryl Pickett passed away Sunday afternoon at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana after a short illness. She was 67.

Bill and Cheryl would have celebrated their 50th anniversary in June. They have two sons, Bill and Bob and 10 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The family was already mourning the death of Cheryl’s mother, Gail Doggett, who died on January 16th.

Cheryl retired from the Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department as the kitchen supervisor at the Public Safety Building in Danville.

Bill would like to thank the doctors, nurses and others at Carle Hospital in Urbana and OSF Sacred Heart Medical Center in Danville for the care they provided to Cheryl over the past two weeks.
