Mrs. Cheryl Lynn Szafirski, age 65, passed away with her husband by her side on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at Atrium Union Hospice.
Services as special as Cheryl will be scheduled by the family at a later date.
Cheryl Lynn Jones Szafirski was born on October 20, 1956 in Lompoc, CA, a daughter of William Jones and the late Barbara Louise Hampson Jones. Cheryl grew up with her five siblings in Lennox, CA. She later met her husband, Pat, at the age of 19 at a party in Torrance, CA. They were married on December 31, 1979 with the promise to always start the new year fresh as one. Cheryl and Pat had 3 children together and loved to go on camping trips to Upper Soda Springs in Mammoth Lakes. Every year, for over 30 years, they would take their family to the campgrounds, set up tents, disconnect from the world and enjoy the simple beauty of life, a good book and family. Cheryl enjoyed watching HGTV, hiking and being in nature, Angels Baseball, the Miami Dolphins and any other sport that was on TV. She was an animal lover who collected dolphin figurines and loved her dogs. Cheryl was involved in the lives of all her children, taking them to all their sporting events and cheering them on from the stands. After becoming a grandmother, she was equally involved in their lives and interests. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and often times kept her going. Known to keep things interesting and hold her own, Cheryl believed in enjoying each and every day of life. Her presence in the lives of those she loved will be greatly missed, but will carry on through the memories shared together.
Those left to cherish Cheryl's memory include her husband of 41 years, Patrick "Pat" Szafirski; her children, Janet Reino, Jo Auger (Christian), Andrew Szafirski (Sarah), and Katie Zitt (Jarred); her grandchildren, Drew, Caitlyn, Madelynn, Fallon, Nolan, Blake, Olivia, Hendrix and Patrick; and her five siblings, Bill, Karen, Susan, Vicki, Wendy and their families.
