Surrounded by loved ones, Cheri Lorene Novak went to be with her Heavenly Father February 7, 2021. She was born to Carl and Osma Lasater in Valejo, CA on January 21, 1961. She was raised and graduated high school in Grants Pass, OR.
In 1980 she married her high school sweetheart, Brent Novak. They had two children Kimberly and Greg. They celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on August 2nd.
Cheri was always a leader in her career in dentistry where she worked over 30 years, the last 21 at Olympia Endodontics.
She was not only a Deaconess in the Central Bible Church, she was instrumental in bringing the members together in fellowship. She loved the Lord, her church and the close-close-knit church family.
Cheri is survived by her husband Brent, daughter Kimberly (Darin) Pierson and sons Greg (Kalli Dawes) Novak and Brian (Jillian) Peters; grandchildren Austin and Hailey Pierson, Brynsen Novak, Maya, Mayson and Makenna Dawes; sisters Barbara (Corey) Akins, Sandra (Cliff) Bowman and brother Christopher (Tricia Fierling) White; her mothers Donna Lasater and Osma Cunnington, and her four Yorkies who meant the world to her.
She was preceded in death by her father Carl Lasater and her grandparents.
It's hard to put words on paper that describe the beautiful, thoughtful, loving lady that was Cheri. Those who knew her loved her and their lives were enriched by her friendship.
The family wishes to thank the wonderful people of Assured Hospice and Pastor Randy and Marsha Sortino for the loving care they provided, and Debbie Hamilton who never let us go hungry.
