Cherry Lynn Washington Porta, of Jacksonville, FL, formerly of Albany died July 12, 2022 at her residence.
Her funeral service will be Monday 12:00 PM at Mathews Funeral Home with interment in Floral Memory Gardens. Mr. Ross Powell will officiate.
Born in Camilla, November 30, 1956 and moved to Albany in 1959 where she grew up and attended school. Cherry loved her family and enjoyed fishing, gardening, crocheting and knitting. She had an outgoing personality which made it easy to make friends.
She met and married the father of her three children – Edward Lee, Eric Washington and Carrie Lynn. She was a person of faith. Cherry’s favorite Bible verses were John 3:16, Romans 3:23-26, Psalm 23:4 and Psalm’s 103: 11-12. Having suffered serious health problems we are sure she is finally at rest in the arms of Jesus.
