Cheryl was born April 24, 1951 in Kokomo, Indiana to William and Doris (Self) Ashenfelter. She was a 1969 graduate of Swanton High School and earned her Bachelors Degree from Bowling Green State University. Cheryl married Joseph Schmidt on February 12, 1971. She taught home economics for three years, and subsequently devoted her time to raising her daughters. In 2006, Cheryl took over ownership of Taste of Toledo, an enterprise which brought her great joy.
