Cheryl Lynn Trujillo-Guthrie, 48, of Sagle, Idaho, originally from Colorado, fought a brave battle against pancreatic cancer. Cheryl won eternal life and peace with her father and savior in heaven on Feb. 2 and was called to glory.
Cheryl was the wife to Gerald “Catfish” Guthrie for over 20 years. They resided in Pagosa for many of those years, running The Landing, working at the hot springs and running their concrete business Lil Rascals, named for their children. Together, Cheryl and Gerald adopted 10 beautiful children, Amario (Leandra), Noah, Yazmine, Amanda, Isabella, DeAngelo (Bree), Elijah (Jordan), Joshua, Josiah, Levi, and special son Jesse, unofficially adopted friend of the boys, as well as having two of their own, Catalina and Boaz Guthrie.
Cheryl is also the loving daughter of Ron and Kathy Trujillo from Pueblo, Colo., and the eldest sister of Charles, Melinda and Jennie Trujillo from Pueblo. Cheryl has been the favorite auntie to all her nieces and nephews throughout the years. Cheryl was also a loving grandmother to her grandchildren.
Cheryl truly loved her family and lived her life to the fullest. She especially loved babies. She loved to travel and eat good food, she loved fellowship with her church family. She was always on the go doing anything she could for whomever was in need of her. Cheryl was a true friend to many, often taking in the less fortunate who needed a home and love. But, most important, Cheryl was a good and faithful servant of the Lord and her job here on earth was well done.
Cheryl was greeted into heaven by her grandparents, Buddy and Margie Trujillo; her father-in-law, Ralph Guthrie; her uncle, Toby Duran; her aunt, Sadie Garcia; her baby boy, Christopher Trujillo; her best friend, Michelle Brechner; and so many other family and friends who have passed on before her. Cheryl will be forever missed and loved, our memories of her forever cherished by the family and friends she left here on earth, when her father called her home.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Pagosa Springs, Colo., this summer for family and friends of Colorado.
