Cheryl May Jones
February 9, 1946 – May 11, 2019

Lyons – Cheryl, 73, joined her oldest son Christopher Jones at her ultimate destination; into the waiting arms of Jesus on Saturday, May 11th, 2019 in Lyons.

She was born to Henry and Eve Winchell on Feb. 9th, 1946 in Burbank, CA. She was raised in the hills (on her horse) of Santa Cruz CA, graduated from Santa Cruz High School, and went on to graduate from Palomar Community College in San Marcos, CA.

In 1967, Cheryl met and married her husband of 50 years while working in the PX at Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base.

They moved to OR in 1971 with their first son and #2 on the way, and settled in Philomath while her husband attended OSU.  She ultimately gave birth to 5 children, 4 boys and a daughter. She was a homemaker until the children were in high school.  Cheryl started working at Fairview Training Center where she earned the moniker, the Mother Teresa of Fairview. She then went on to work at Salem Hospital and eventually retired from Cascade Cardiology as a Medical Assistant in 2013.

Her passion was her walk with the Lord, her husband, children, her artwork and especially her horse, chickens, dogs, cats and an assortment of other creatures.  She was a gourmet cook and had a green thumb to grow anything that drew her attention; she leaves a prolific garden and vegetation around her property.
