Roy Roger's Daughter


is the adopted daughter of Roy Rogers and his first , Arline, who died when Cheryl was six years old. While on a personal appearance tour in Texas, Roy stopped off in Dallas and visited the babies at Hope Cottage. As Roy told it, all the babies in the nursery would cry whenever he leaned over their cribs and tickled them under the chin. All, that is, except Cheryl, who grasped his finger, smiled and cooed. He said it was love at first sight and he couldn't wait to take her home to Arline. A year following Arline's death, Roy married his co-star Dale Evans on New Year's Eve of 1947 and, as they say, the rest is history.

Cheryl's professional life has included banking and finance in the entertainment industry, property management for a food service company with holdings throughout the U.S. and Mexico, and managing the offices of a legal firm and a civil engineering company. She is currently on the Advisory Board of the Western Music Association. She has also contributed her time and talent to many worthwhile charitable groups. Along with Dale, Cheryl was a charter member of the parent organization of Childhelp USA, which still leads the national battle against child abuse. Cheryl and her husband, Larry, live in Washington, Utah. They have seven grown children and 14 grandchildren.

Today, Cheryl keeps busy promoting her recently released book, The All-American Cowboy Grill, which she wrote with Ken Beck and Jim Clark. It contains new pictures and grilling recipes from “reel and real” cowboys, along with interesting facts about the old West. She also promotes her autobiography Cowboy Princess; Life with my Parents Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. She serves on the Executive Committee of the Golden Boot Awards benefitting the Motion Picture and Television Foundation, and is on the board of directors of the Beverly and Jim Rogers Museum of Lone Pine Film History which opened June, 2006 in Lone Pine, California.
