Cheryl Lee Schiller of Canyon, Texas passed away Tuesday, September 18, 2018 after 67 years of making this world a brighter place.

On February 22, 1969, Cheryl married her best friend and high school love, Jackie Schiller of Happy, Texas. For the next 30 years she served and sacrificed as a military spouse and devoted mother tasked with raising two men. The following 20 years, Cheryl worked in the Cornette Library at West Texas A&M University. She was an avid reader, who loved her pets unconditionally. She was the foundation and backbone of her family. She was cherished every moment of every day, and she will be painfully missed by many. Above all, she was a fighter.
Cheryl and family learned that she defeated cancer the day before her passing. The courage, strength, and fortitude she displayed through that war will echo within the family for generations to come.
Cheryl was preceded in death by her parents, Orva and Leona Henry, and a brother, James Henry.
Survivors include her loving and devoted husband of 49 years, Jackie; two noble sons: Judge and wife, Darcy, of Austin, Jeffrey and wife, Hannah, of Canyon; four beautiful granddaughters: Jade, Isa, Autumn, and Parys; two amazing grandsons: Cash and Jigs; two precious great-grandchildren: Isaiah and Lyla; an ornery brother: Joe Henry and wife, Lajean, of Amarillo; two influential sisters: Lana White and husband, Billy, of Amarillo, Bette Pitts and husband, Terry, of Lubbock; a cherished niece, Melissa Jones, and several other nieces, nephews, cousins, and kin.
The family requests memorials be sent to Harrington Cancer Center, 1500 Wallace Blvd. Amarillo, TX 79106, who fight daily to ease the suffering of loved ones. We thank them for the blood, sweat, and tears they shared with us.
