Cheryl Ann Syndergaard

November 26th, 1943 - April 9th, 2020

Cheryl Ann Syndergaard went home to be with Jesus the morning of April 9, 2020 surrounded by her family: husband, Kenneth; daughter, Kennette (Stewart); son, Shane (Sarah) and her 5 grandchildren: Tess (Brandyn), Kenyon, Shaynee, Madison, and KJ. Cheryl arrived in Powell WY on November 26, 1943. She was raised by Elmer and Frances Kersting. She graduated from the Powell public school system where she met the love of her life Kenneth Syndergaard. Cheryl went on to complete one year at Northwest Community College. Ken and Cheryl were married in Moose, WY at the quaint little Chapel of Transfiguration in the beautiful Tetons. Cheryl worked at the First National Bank of Powell. Their first child, Steven Jon was born in Powell. Cheryl followed her husband to Belle Creek, MT during the 1967 oil boom. As the first family to move into Belle Creek, they made a life and had another child, Kennette Ann. During this time Cheryl was a bookkeeper in the oil field for 5 years. They left the oil field to open a service station in Billings, MT. Ken’s Interstate was a huge part of her and Ken’s life for 22 years where she kept the books. During this time they had a third child, Shane Troy. Cheryl was an active part of her kids lives, being a den mother for cub scouts, secretary for Jurrett’s school of baton and dance, treasurer for Billings Aquatic Club swim team, and involved in PTO. In 1995 Ken’s Interstate Service Station closed and Cheryl went to work for First Interstate Bank. Ken and Cheryl “retired” in 2005 and became full time “RVers” where they pursued their dream jobs working in Yellowstone National Park for 6 years. Their time in Yellowstone was some of the most memorable, they made lifelong friends and enjoyed the wildlife and scenery. In 2012 they moved to Boise to be closer to their kids and grandkids. Here she worked for Grapevine 7 RV resorts for a couple of years. She spent her winters in Boise, and summers in McCall. McCall was one of her favorite places where she took joy in feeding the foxes and deer and watching the squirrels and birds. Cheryl was diagnosed with dementia, the disease may have stripped her short term memory, but her long term memory remained intact, and she worked hard to remember her grandchildren along the way. Cheryl lived for her grandkids, attending every game, performance, graduation, and party. She would do anything for her family and friends and she will be truly missed, but we are comforted knowing she has been reunited with her son, Steven Syndergaard and 3 grand babies she never met. We are grateful for Ken as he took phenomenal care of his beloved Cheryl during their time together. Also a big thank you to the staff of The Cottages, Saint Luke’s Hospice and Accent Funeral Home for their amazing care of Cheryl during her last days. **A virtual service will be held Saturday April 18th 5pm-7pm. Please visit Facebook and search Cheryl Ann Syndergaard Virtual Service to join the service.

Ken, so sorry to read about Cheryl's passing in the Gazette this week. Faith had just let me know recently of Cheryl's diagnosis last year. I have fond memories of all the Syndergaard's and remember first meeting you and your family at 2052 Miles Avenue. Kennette and Steve were just toddlers. All of the Syndergaard's were great friends and we miss you. Greet the family and let Kennette and Shane know how sorry I am. Cheryl was an ambitious woman, full of life and adventure. May your memories bring you peace in the days ahead. God bless, Joanie Peterson

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Syndergaard family at this difficult time of loss. Cheryl Ann was a cousin of ours and we always looked forward to either her family coming to Kansas occasionally from Wyoming or us having the opportunity of visits to the Powell and Cody areas and easy access to Yellowstone Park. As years passed we became equally close to Cheryl's immediate family and enjoyed many wedding, hunting and social reunions with the Syndergaard branch. Ken proved to be the most cordial and pleasant individual one would ever hope to be around so it was, indeed, no small wonder that he would revel in the role of faithful caretaker to his beloved Cheryl. Their devotion to each other was truly evident when one had the chance to be around them. She will surely be missed by all, but those warm, forever memories will be there long term to wrap her loved ones up in the joy of the thought of that infectious smile, the meaningful words of encouragement or the squeeze you'll never forget. The Good Lord love you all. The Grauer's in Kansas

Dear Ken and family, oh the memories we have together over many many years. Was always a pleasure to see you or hear from you after leaving Belle Creek. Loved it when we reconnected to Steve at the Home Shows in Billings. With sadness want you to know that Chuck(Charlie) went to be with his heavenly family on March 31. Know he was there to meet with Cheryl Ann. My heart goes out to each of you. Hugs and Love, Jane Chelberg
