A beloved wife, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend, Laura Cheree Floyd went to be with her Heavenly Father at the age of 34, on May 6, 2020. Born in Arlington, TX on July 11th, 1985 to Donnie and Laura Sugg. Cheree grew up in Burleson, Texas, where she later graduated from Burleson High School. After, she decided to pursue her passion for teaching at Tarleton State University and graduated in the spring of 2008. Cheree graduated with honors, as well as with a concentration in special education. Later, Cheree decided to return home and serve the community that helped instill her desire for teaching. She worked in Burleson Independent School District for 10 years and served as the Adaptive Physical Education Coach for the district. Cheree also coached the Special Olympics team named “Burleson Blaze” at Burleson ISD for 3 years. Her true passion has always been to impact the lives of her students and watch them grow into the amazing adults she knew they would become.
On August 10th, 2013 in Granbury, Texas, Cheree and Justin made the decision to carry each other’s hand in marriage. Their marriage was something that was adventurous, spontaneous, and unparalleled. There was never a dull moment in their almost 13 years spent together. Cheree was also a lover of shopping, concerts, and vacations. From Disney cruises with her family to shopping with her friends, Cheree always found a way to make sure everyone was included in her everyday life. We will always remember her infectious smile, blunt reactions, and caring personality. Her presence in our lives will be truly missed. When you think of Cheree, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest. As Cheree would say “Don’t put off something for tomorrow that you can do today.”
Cheree is survived by her husband Justin Floyd, and child Wylder Floyd. She leaves behind her parents Donnie and Laura Sugg, brothers Kalyn and Brad Sugg, Sisters Rylee and Presley, Niece Audrina Sugg, Nephew Cooper Sugg; Mother-In-Law Shelly Bransom, Father-In-Law Rex Floyd, Grandmother Kay Goodwin; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
The service will be held at 12 p.m., Saturday, May 9th at Prairie Spring Cemetery; located at 880 W Country Road 714, Burleson, TX 76028. Flowers can be sent to Mountain Valley Funeral Home at 3407 SW Wilshire Blvd, Joshua TX 76058.
