Cheryl-Ann Benn traveled the world by the age of 16, as the premier dancer for Trinidad Dance Theatre. She performed at prestigious concert halls, including Cannes Film Festival in the French Riviera and the Royal Albert Hall in London. She taught Trinidad’s youth at St. Gabriel’s School. She fell in love with the boy next door and had three children; she raised a loving, supportive and driven family. Cheryl-Ann built a home where everyone always felt welcomed. As a woman of great faith, she raised her children in the Catholic Church. She personified the Lord’s word. Always giving to others; she humbly fed the poor and helped families in need financially.
