With profound sadness, Danna McKitrick, P.C. announces the passing of our colleague and friend, Cheryl Beebe-Snell, on Thursday, May 2, 2024. Cheryl was a member of the firm as a business law and estate planning attorney for over 40 years.

Cheryl is survived by her husband of 45 years, John, her daughter Sasha, her grandchildren, and her sisters Brenda, Lori, and Jamie. She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Faye Beebe and her sister Theresa.

Cheryl had a knack for integrating business owners’ current needs with their long-term objectives. She worked with closely-held businesses handling special circumstances surrounding business formation, sales, mergers, and acquisitions. She provided tax analyses, contract work, and strategic employee benefit scenarios (including public pension plans), strategic succession planning, and guidance on long-term benefits for shareholders via retirement plans and other means.

Cheryl worked with business owners and other high net-worth individuals to create complex estate plans through a variety of legal vehicles such as gifting and trusts and in the administration of trusts.

Cheryl earned her LL.M. in Taxation from Washington University School of Law (1990) and J.D., with distinction from University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Law (1983).

According to her family, Cheryl loved to travel and loved the beach. She loved to read, watch crime shows, and spend time with her family playing dice, card games, and checkers (with her grandchildren).
