Cheryl Melinda Longshaw

Cheryl passed away on Saturday at St. Michael’s Hospice in Burnaby after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. Unfortunately, Cancer was not the only challenge Cheryl faced in her life. She also survived a severe brain injury in 2001 where she bravely fought back from being almost completely physically disabled to create an independent life where she was always available to help others in need.

Cheryl’s smile and twinkling eyes could light up a room and warm the hearts of everyone around her. She was above all kind, but also happy and mischievous and loved to have fun. It was an honour to know her.

Cheryl was predeceased by her loving mother, Lois, in 2017. She is survived by her father, Mike, stepmother, Jill, brother, Mike Jr., grandfather, Bob, many uncles, aunts, and cousins as well as a niece, a nephew and a close friend, Don Nellaney.

We extend a heartfelt thanks to the Oncology staff at Royal Columbian Hospital and the Surrey Cancer Center for their kind treatment. The extended time afforded her, and us, by the professional care they administered was priceless. We also have a big shout out to the staff on 5 South at RCH and at St. Michaels Hospice, who are truly exceptional health care providers to those in the greatest need, Thank you.

Funeral Services will be held at St. Paul’s Indian Catholic Church, 426 West Esplanade, North Vancouver, BC on Saturday, November 16 at 11 AM. Memorial Chapel, Vancouver, BC. 604.255.5444.
