It is with the utmost sadness we share the loss of our Wife, Mom, Sister, Grandma, Great Grandma & Friend. She passed peacefully in Whitehorse, Yukon in the early morning hours of January 31st, 2022.
Cheryl was born in Oxbow Saskatchewan. She was the oldest of Bruce & Ila Wards 5 children. She spent her school years in Alameda. She moved to Regina where she met her husband of 52 years, Robert Ashley. They went onto Alberta to start their family. In 1989 the family moved to The Yukon.
