We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Cremation Society of Idaho
Cherie passed away on January 6th, 2022.
She was born in Council, Idaho in June of 1957. She grew up in Council, graduated from Council High School and lived in Boise, Idaho for the last 33 years.
Cherie loved the mountains and felt at peace camping in her little Fleetcraft trailer. The Big Hole Valley in Montana and the Middle Fork of the Payette River were two of her favorite places. Cherie was a talented artist and her passions included beading and fighting the good fight.
Cherie married Don Plum in 1993 and together they bought a house in Boise’s North End. Cherie loved living there and was passionate about protecting their home and neighborhood. Cherie’s warrior spirit and friendship will be missed.
Cherie’s tenacity, courage and relentless efforts resulted in many positive changes to Boise’s North End. In 1998 the Boise Weekly chose her as one of Boise’s Local Heroes. Our neighborhood is a better place because of her work.
Cherie is survived by her husband Don, her son Barry, daughter-in-law Mikayla—three Grandchildren- Calli, McKenzie, Gage, Great Grandson Lucas and her brothers Ted, Darrell, Kelly and Tony. She loved her family very much.
Cherie is predeceased by her parents Lee and Dee Cole and her friend/protector Journey.
Sometimes the people you want to help the most you can do the least for. Don’t give up on them. Cherie was a good friend and loved by many.
In lieu of a service, the next time you are in the mountains next to a creek, remember Cherie. She is probably near by gathering up some rocks and enjoying Mother Nature.
