Sheryl Deane Johansen, age 47 born August 5, 1963, graduate of Soquel High, ended her battle with cancer courageously in Scotts Valley where she lived most of her life, at Mike Rowland's home, surrounded by friends and family on Tuesday, April 20, 2010.
Daughter of Ted Johansen and Liberty Henrichsen, granddaughter of Mel and Darlene Johansen, sister of Barbara Johansen and Suzanne Winchel--she is survived by these beloveds--Aunt Nene, Uncle Jay, Uncle Chris, Uncle Ed, their families, her dear Katrina and numerous friends. She was very loved and is missed terribly. She had a zest for life, a gift of compassion and a heart of gold. She loved to gather and give gifts of warmth, encouragement and inspiration to others. She had a great voice and stage presence and would say that you can honor her by living life and taking care of one another with increased passion and waking up every morning like she did, with a smile.
