Obituary

Cherie Yvonne Gravley, 65

Cherie Yvonne Gravley, 65, of Osburn, Idaho, passed away December 11, 2019 at the Mountain Valley of Cascadia of Kellogg.  She was born February 11, 1954 in Kellogg; Cherie was the daughter of Howard and Betty (Clouse) Campbell.

Cherie attended and graduated from the Kellogg High School in 1972.

Cherie married Denny Gravley on December 6, 1972 in Kellogg.  While Denny was serving in the U.S. Army, they lived in Germany for several years.  Cherie and Denny were able to travel throughout Europe.  Cherie could speak German fluently, as well as, other languages.

Cherie had served as a school bus driver for the Wallace School District and had also served as a substitute teacher/aide for special needs children for seventeen years.  Cherie loved children and many troubled children would find comfort in the home of Denny and Cherie.  Cherie had also served as a linguist for children through the Lewis and Clark College.

Cherie was a member of the St. Rita’s Catholic Church of Kellogg and a member of the Catholic Daughters.

Cherie loved and enjoyed her family, camping, fishing, hunting, and playing on the river.

Cherie was a very passionate person who never knew a stranger; she was always able to diffuse any conflict with humor.

Cherie is survived by her husband Denny Gravley of Osburn, Idaho; one daughter Hailey and her husband Mark Robertson of Fort Belvoir, Virginia; one son Jesse of the U.S. Navy and his wife Alyssa Gravley stationed in Japan; one granddaughter Makailah Robertson; two grandsons Liam Robertson and Everett Gravley; one brother Bob and his wife Isabelle Campbell of Smelterville, Idaho; she is also survived by several nieces, nephews, and cousins in Montana and Washington.  Cherie was preceded in death by her parents and one brother Ted Campbell.

A gathering of family and friends will be held at a later date.

The family suggests that memorials may be made to Shoshone County CASA, P.O. Box 483, Silverton, Idaho 83867; a program helping children which Cherie would love.

MISSING YOU

Honey I don’t know what to do

Because my sweet love I’m missing you

Every thought and emotion I have inside

Makes me so sad that I cried

The smiles and laughter we once had

That keep me warm the whole day through

It’s now only memories that make me sad

Because my sweet love I’m missing you

I hold the memories of all things I did with you

They fill my body and soul, that’s true

These thoughts sometime make me cry, they do

Because my sweet love I’m missing you

And now I see you slowly slipping away

I wish and I pray we had just one more day

To hold each others hands, a kiss or two

Because my sweet love I’m missing you

I tried so hard to keep you with me

But this I know will never be

I think of you all the day through

Because my sweet love I’m missing you

Now Alzheimer’s has taken you away

I pray that someday they can find a way

To stop others from having this disease too

Because my sweet love I’m missing you
