Cheryl Dawn (Rossing)
Sept. 26, 1966 – May 10, 2014
It is with heavy hearts but a sense of final peace that we announce the passing of Cheryl Dawn Borduas. Cheryl passed away in her sleep, at the age of 47, at the Red Deer Hospice on May 10, 2014, after a short, but brave battle with Leukemia.
Cheryl was one of a kind. A lover of animals, her children, her husband and her family, who made life better for all who came into contact with her. She didn’t suffer fools gladly, but had the warmest heart for animals in need. Finally free from her struggles, she has gone to a better place, no doubt making her entrance with “it’s just me”! Cheryl is survived by her loving husband of 21 years, André, and her children Chantel and Dominique. She is also survived by her mother, Betty and Hans Gelsing; her sister Sue-Ellen and Michael Sheilan and their children Jaden and MacKenzie; her brother Michael and Karen Rossing and their children Mickayla and Josh; her step-brother Sander and Julie Gelsing and their children Elliott and Alex, as well as André’s mother, Cheryl and Gary Burns. She is also survived by her father, Gordon Rossing, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews on the Rossing side of the family as well as her extended relatives on the Koenig side of the family. Special recognition to her close and dear friend, Debbie Webster.
“My chains are gone. I’ve been set free….”
Unending love, amazing grace”
