Remembering Cheryl Lyn Delk

Cheryl Delk, longtime special projects coordinator for Newton County, passed away in November 2021. Chimney Park, where the cover photograph was taken, exists today thanks to Cheryl. 

With reverence and respect, 
the past was tended and preserved 
for new eyes to see
or that more familiar minds 
might revisit.

Ideas became tangible 
under the skillful shaping and 
a deliberate pace of determination 
to make something beautiful 
and better. 

A community was cultivated, 
passions were shared, 
and the sun cast shadows 
on our paths in new and wonderful ways.

  1. I met Cheryl while going to school at UGA and then she come to Moultrie, GA my home town to start a business with a friend. She did that for many years with great humor, hard work and she was loads of fun. I miss her everyday and I did not get to say good-by, which I truly regret..
