Help us celebrate Cheryl! Please share your stories and photos, and invite others who remember Cheryl.
Cheryl Jocelyn Kayirayuaq "Cheri" Brown was born on May 19,1993 in Anchorage Alaska and she was pronounced deceased on December 2, 2019 at Alaska Regional Hospital. She suffered a prolonged seizure on November 27 that robbed her of oxygen and she was placed on a ventilator after paramedics restarted her heart, which was removed after tests revealed that she had no brain waves, nor were any of her organs working, much to the deep sadness of her friends and family.
She was preceded in death by her Great Uncle Jacob Yako Evan, her Great Uncle Thomas Brown, her Aunt Martina Campbell, her Grandparents Sophie and Calvin Coolidge, and her brother Cassius Joseph Brown among other relatives.

Cheri had a fun loving, compassionate, giving, and carefree attitude. From the time she was a toddler, her number 1 love was the love of babies. Her most favorite attire to use was a long qaspeq mainly because her favorite past time was Eskimo dancing. Her favorite color was red and she liked red plaid designs. She also loved cherries because it matched her name. Beginning from childhood, she always loved Pooh Bear, which is a pattern for one of the qaspeqs she sewed herself. Her friends and relatives are encouraged to use a (longish) qaspeq to her service in her memory or anything with the color red or red plaid or anything with designs of cherries or Pooh Bear. Everyone who knows Cheri will miss her terribly who is now Eskimo dancing in the sky!
