A Celebration of Life will be held for Cheryl Denise Jones at her family home located at 21301 SR 530 NE Arlington, WA 98223 on May 30th, 2015 at 1:00 PM. Anyone who knew her and would like to come is welcome.
Cheryl was born on December 7th, 1970 at 7:42 AM in Port Angeles, WA to William and Robin Schostak. Ten years later she was joined by her sister, Kimberly Schostak.
She was a very special woman who loved and supported her husband Jim, son Kyten, and daughters Chalaine (Laney) and Makiah each and every day. Cheryl and Jim were married on April 28th, 1990 at the Assembly of God Church in Forks, WA.
Cheryl left us peacefully at the age of 44 while at the University of Washington Hospital on Thursday May 21st, 2015 with her family by her side. Cheryl fought hard for 5 months against the genetic Alpha One Antitrypsin Deficiency, while waiting for a liver transplant.
Cheryl was well known for her many talents; some of which included, taking excellent care of her family, gardening, cooking, and canning. One of her favorite holiday traditions was making homemade Christmas baskets that were gifted to many family and friends. She also valued the extensive amount of time she spent volunteering at her children’s schools. Cheryl cherished the time she spent watching and supporting her husband and son in many years at the race track.
The family would like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the GoFundMe account. Cheryl enjoyed reading the names and comments of everyone who donated in honor of her. The family would also like to thank fellow racers, who donated their race winnings and are raffling a vintage modified racecar to support Cheryl and her family in return for the many years of her devotion towards the whole club. An additional fundraiser is being held in her home town of Forks which will include a spaghetti dinner and a silent auction.
