Cheryle York
Cheryle Jannet Brown was born in Ojai, Calif., to Lyall and Virginia Brown. When she became a young woman she married John Guy York and devoted almost 50 years to his care, raising two daughters and being a great caretaker to her family. For almost 20 years she lived in Georgetown on the corner of Highway 193 and Clarke Street.

Cheryle was well known for her long walks through the divide, collecting purple glass and antiques and dedicating her time to her family and their life events. She moved to Prospect, Ore., around 1983. While there she was very active in Oregon Hunters Association and later in fighting for hunting rights at the ballot polls. She was a guest speaker about her work at the Safari Club International convention in Reno, Nevada. She enjoyed living out her retirement on a beautiful ranch and was very well known for her excellent cooking, beautiful gardens and homemade wine and canning.

Cheryle was a faithful supporter of the Prospect Jamboree and Timber Carnival and loved the BBQ after the timber carnival each year with her friends. In 2008 she divorced John and moved to Southern California, where she learned to live independently, living alone for more than two years, even though she battled with multiple sclerosis. She enjoyed living near her daughter Jonna (York) Plante and her husband Dan and felt privileged to be close to her granddaughter, Summer Plante-Newman, where she became a devoted fan of her playing volleyball at California Lutheran University.

Cheryle is survived by family, including Dan and Jonna (York) Plante, Summer Plante-Newman (and her fiance, Chase Tigert) and her close friends who preceded or survived her death, Ralph and Candy Brown, Bret and; Liz Steward, Greg Smith and many more — too many to mention.
