Alice Chernick won her courageous battle with cancer when she walked into the arms of Jesus on August 7, 2021. A celebration of life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 14, 2021 at Wellsprings Church. Please wear your favorite, bright colored or flowered attire as we celebrate her life. A reception will follow.
Alice was born in Sidney, Montana on February 19, 1938 to Fred and Hazel Sjostrom. She was raised in Sioux Pass Montana. She attended a one room school in Sioux Pass with her siblings, Vera, Opal and Lloyd through eighth grade and graduated from Sidney High School in 1956. She moved to Casper WY in 1959 where she met her husband of 57 years, Edward Chernick, while working at First National Bank. They married in 1964 and had three children, Tonja, Kim and Jennifer.
Alice worked at several banking institutions and Savings and Loans during her early working career. Later in life, she went to work for the Natrona County Assessor's office and retired from there on April 4, 2004. After retirement, her favorite past-time was “piddling” in her garden. She always had the most beautiful garden on the block!
Family was the center of Alice’s life. She was happiest when her family was around. She loved baking and cooking meals for her entire family, preparing each member a delicious birthday dinner of their choice. She loved to make Christmas candy for the holidays to share with family and friends. She still hand wrote and mailed birthday and Christmas cards to a long list of family and friends. She loved the special time that she got to spend with her only granddaughter when she stopped by daily for lunch (often with friends) during her high school years.
Alice was a devoted member of First Assembly of God/Wellsprings Church since 1959.
Alice was always positive, never complained, saw the good in everyone, and had endless love and compassion for everyone. She will be dearly missed and forever treasured in our hearts.
Alice is survived by her loving husband Ed, daughters Tonja Funch (Chris), Kim Pelton (Mike) and Jennifer Chernick; her beloved grandchild Abby Funch, numerous nieces and nephews; cousins and many special friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Vera and Opal and brother Lloyd.
The family would like to express special thanks to the amazing team of people at Central Wyoming Hospice. In lieu of flowers, donations to Central Wyoming Hospice are appreciated.
