Cheryl Morhart of Vavenby, BC, passed away in Vavenby on August 29, 2015 after a brave battle with ALS disease. She was 59 years of age.
Born in Calgary, Alberta, on September 13, 1956, Cheryl is survived by her husband Wayne of Vavenby; sons Greg (Latisha) of Victoria, BC, Joe (Dominica) of Kamloops, BC, Eric of Alberta and Wayne (Sarah) of Vancouver, BC; daughter Lisa of Dawson Creek, BC; and by her grandchildren Jonah, Journey, Connor, Mark, Sierra, Lanaya, Micah and Tsion.

Cheryl named her janitorial company Can Do Cleaning. This name reflected her positive attitude to life. She worked under contract to provide cleaning for Canfor, and she took great pride in being “the crazy cleaning lady” at the mill. She was a hard worker and always said you’ve got to make cleaning fun. Her motto was, “You need a Can Do attitude in a Can’t Do world!”
Most of all, Cheryl’s focus was on her family. She put the needs of others before her own. Even when she was diagnosed with ALS Cheryl remained extremely positive. She always had a smile on her face and a spark in her eye. Her warmth and positivity were infectious to everyone she encountered.
