Obituary for Cherith Brooke Petzold

Cherith Brooke Petzold was born on May 10, 1985 in Louisville to Rick Morgan and Sheila Rowlett. Cherith spent her youth in the country side of Trimble County Kentucky. She attended High School in Trimble County and at Madison Consolidated High School in Jefferson County Indiana. Upon Graduation she moved back to Louisville to work on an accounting degree at the University of Louisville. It was there she met her future husband Chris Petzold who was also a student working on his history degree. They soon fell in love and married on August of 2007. Cherith graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. Her and Chris settled down in Louisville to start their careers. They were soon blessed with a son on May 20, 2008-they named him Matthew A. Petzold. Not long after his birth they moved to Shepherdsville Kentucky to raise their son. Cherith would find work as an Agent with the Internal Revenue Service. Cherith moved through life with a sense of humor, she was funny and enjoyed laughing and making funny faces to make others laugh. Helping people was part of her philosophy of life-and she did. She was an explorer and would travel to experience new cultures. She most especially enjoyed taking cruises into Latin American. She would experience the food, scenery, music, religion and especially the people. Faith in God so important to her. Member of Evangel World Prayer Center, Louisville. Of all these things, nothing came close to being with her son Matthew. Cherith passed away in the town it all began, in Louisville, Kentucky on January 3, 2019 at her residence at the age of 33.
