Gone...

Today, I lost not only my doctor, but also a friend. Dr Cheryl Krause passed away in her sleep last night, aged 48. Currently, her cause of death is unknown. She was perfectly healthy, and there is no logical reason for her passing. Cheryl was my doctor for both of my pregnancies. She was the most amazing, wonderful and understanding doctor I have ever known (I had been with Cheryl for about 10 years). She was very much loved, by her patients, by her medical staff, and by her friends. And she will be so greatly missed. And yet again, the good die young.
Rest In Peace. You will not be forgotten.

  3. Hi Jules, Dr Cheryl Krause was also my Doctor and friend for over 10 years. She certainly was loved by so many around this area. I haven't stopped crying since I heard the sad news yesterday morning. What a beautiful caring person she was to have died too young. Life is precious, treasure it.

  4. Yes Jules, Cheryl was my doctor too for many, many years. What a beautiful person and lady she was not to mention a doctor with a caring and compassionate bedside manner. I will miss her terribly but my heart goes out to her family and work colleagues who must be struggling with such a devastating loss on many levels.

  5. I was blessed to be a patient of Cheryl Krause for 10 years too! I was shocked and my heart ached today when I learnt of her passing. She was a lady in every sense of the word. When I left an appointment with Cheryl, 6 days ago I left with pirits lifted, like I'd just had a coffee chat with a close girlfriend. Her final advice to me "find that 30 minutes a day" to get me back into some health building exercise - I will now keep that committment with vigour.
    My thoughts and heartfelt warmth goes out to her close loved ones.

  6. RIP Cheryl. Cheryl was so caring when we lost out first child (miscarrage.) From there she seemed to enjoy our three healthy children as much as we did, they all knew and trusted Dr Cheryl. She was a compasionate, caring and gifted doctor to our family, she could listen as well as advise and if need be if the rules needed bending a little bit to help someone then so be it. She always ran late but didn't care, the patient in front of her was all she cared about, a wonderfull person and doctor, she will be greatly missed

  7. RIP Cheryl. I am so saddened by this news. She was the best doctor I have ever had. I have been seeing Cheryl since we moved to Brisbane 8 years ago. Every time I saw her, it reminded me exactly why I liked her and trusted her. She was a wonderful doctor and my heart goes out to her loved ones. One of the most compassionate doctors you could find. Just two weeks ago I had an appointment with her and she was full of life. Very sad to hear this. Makes me want to make the most of every minute with my family, as we never know when our time will be up.
    Cheryl will be greatly missed by all. A devastating loss for all that knew her.

  13. I was also a long time patient of Cheryl's since she commenced down at Ferny Grove and I feel devestated by her passing. She truly was an amazing lady - so warm, engaging & professional. The fact that you had to wait up to two weeks for an appointment with her is testimony to her as a doctor. I feel very lost knowing that I don't have her to turn to. So, so sad...

  14. It is so tragic. Dr Cheryl was not only my doctor, but she was a vibrant, caring, kind and compassionate ladie. She will be sorely missed. God bless Cheryl, RIP.

  15. I was hoping this news was just a rumour and not true! I haven't been able to stop crying. She was my doctor for many years and over the last couple of years she supported me through a traumatic marriage breakup. I grew to love and respect her not only as my doctor but as a woman who had so much compassion and time for everyone. Even when I moved 45 minutes away I would drive back the FG to see her because I knew I would get no better care anywhere else. I was there last week and spent time with her chatting about life in general. The last thing she said to me was "I will see you in a month or so". RIP Cheryl XXX

  16. I found out this shocking news today. Cheryl has been my doctor since I was living down the coast in Mudgeeraba and when she moved to Ferny Grove I followed her. She has been a doctor to all of my four children in which my eldest is 15. I live in Bne now and at every visit she would say " you still come from the south side all the way over here". I just cant believe it. Cheryl is the most kindest, compassionate and thorough doctor in Bne and she is irreplaceable. Cheryl will be soarly missed by her work place, fellow doctors patients, friends and family.My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this time. RIP Cheryl.Love from Belinda,Martin Samuel,Ethan and Summer Unicomb.

  17. I too am another privileged patient of Cheryl's who was devastated to find out that she had passed. My heart still aches for her everytime I see a script etc with her name on it, knowing that I will never have the privilege to see her again in this world. The only way I can resolve it, is to have faith that she is in Heaven, doing whatever God has called her home to do ... it must be very important, as she was an absolute blessing here.

  18. Hi,
    I am Cheryl's niece and after Cheryl passed away, our family was told of this blog. Reading these comments in the week following her death was so lovely. I still have this saved in my favourites and come on to read all the wonderful comments about her.
    It's been a great pick me up for when we are feeling down and missing her.
    She was the most amazing person and I just wanted to say thankyou on behalf of my family for all the wonderful comments we get to read and remember her for. x

  19. I'm so sorry to hear this news. I now live on the Gold Coast but have been a patient at Ferny Grove since 1984. Cheryl was my doctor for many, many years and I still go there in spite of the travel. Such a shock and my heart goes out to Cheryl's family and friends. She was such a lovely person and a truly caring, honest and genuine health professional. You'll be hugely and sadly missed Cheryl. xLR
