Cheryl Mushinski Graunstadt
Class of 1975

I married Ron Graunstadt (Livonia Franklin 1974) in 1977. We have 3 daughters, Andrea, Tracy & Erica - all are Franklin grads.

We raised our family in the northern section of Westland within 5 miles of the same neighborhoods that we grew up in. Plans to move are on hold due to the current economy.

My oldest daughter married in 2008 and made us first-time grandparents in April of 2010. A darling baby boy names Jameson

When my daughters were small I held several part-time jobs, including years at a title insurance company and later at a commercial insurance company. In my 30's I attended Henry Ford Community College and graduated with honors, earning an Associates Degree in Business and completing their legal assistant program. I worked for a short time at a non-profit legal service organization.

In 2001 I ran for public office and was elected to serve on the Westland City Council for 4 yrs. I won re-election for a second 4 yr term in 2005, which expired in 2009.

My husband and I vacation at a family cottage at Houghton Lake and own a Harley Davidson for those adventures on the road less traveled. I am currently employed at a U.S. Customs and Trade consulting company in Farmington Hills.
