Cheryl Lamport

December 31, 1969 — April 8, 2021

Cheryl Johnson Hamilton Lamport, 76, of Cobbs Creek, VA passed away on Thursday, April 8, 2021 after a period of declining health. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joe Reeves Lamport, her father Byron Johnson, her mother, Louise Foster and her sister Christina Johnson. She is survived by her children Stacie Hamilton Baird (Scott), Stuart H. Hamilton, III “Trip” (Anja), Scott Alexander Hamilton (Lora), and her stepdaughter Kelly Lamport Rosales (James); six grandchildren who called her Memaw, Stuart H. Hamilton IV “Skip” (Brittany), Shelbie Baird, Tate Hamilton, Spencer Baird, Reese Duncan and Leah Hamilton, two great grandsons Ryan and Colt Hamilton; her sister Cathy Johnson DeRemer (Michael) and her family, extended relatives and countless friends.

Cheryl was born in Roanoke, raised her family in Richmond, and lived the last 30 years in Mathews County, VA. When she lived in Richmond, she was a member of Varina Episcopal Church, the Varina Junior Woman’s Club and helped out with any activity her children were involved in. When she moved to Mathews, she became a member of Christ Episcopal Church and served on the Vestry, the Altar Guild, was a youth group leader and co-chaired the craft booth at the annual Fall Fair until she could no longer do so. She was a member of PEO Chapter BT, Red Hats, and loved to play Mahjong, canasta and bridge. She was also an adventurous snow skier and traveler. Our mom had a beautiful smile and was incredibly sweet. We were so lucky to have had her, but not nearly long enough.
