Sheri Cavin
Chapel Oaks Funeral Home Hiawatha
Robinson, KS

Sheri Lynn (Smith) Cavin, 61, of Robinson died Thursday morning Sept 10, 2020 at her home in the loving care of her husband of 34 years, Allen Cavin.

Sheri was born August 15, 1959 in Hiawatha, Kansas to Larry W. Smith and Alice F (Watson) Smith.

Sheri was raised in Colorado where she met her first husband with whom she had 3 children. In 1981 she moved, along with her family, back to Kansas where she later met and married her husband Allen.

She always enjoyed being surrounded by friends and family and was very fond of being around young people as she was always young at heart.  She worked various jobs throughout her life, but none that she seemed to enjoy as much as her jobs in the kitchens of two separate colleges.  She enjoyed being around the college kids.  Sheri also volunteered at Robinson’s Community Church school where she taught the preschool and kindergarten class.  But of all the things Sheri did in her life, she held dearest to her heart being a grandma and great grandma.   

Sheri is survived by her husband Allen, father Larry Smith and companion Paula Holst Horton, KS, a sister Angie (Lloyd) Muckey of Robinson, KS, three children, Russell (Rickie) Gonzales Leadville, CO, Amie Gonzales (Jeremiah Rebant) Hiawatha, KS and Kristopher (Robin) Gonzales Hiawatha, KS, 12 grandchildren, numerous step grand-children, a great-granddaughter and another great-grandchild on the way.  Too numerous to mention are the others that Sheri simply chose to call her kids and grandkids.  She is also survived by aunts and uncles, cousins and many nieces and nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

Sheri was preceded in death in 2002 by her mother Alice F (Watson) Smith of Robinson, KS as well as her grand-parents Chalton (Shon) & Ruth Smith and Ernest (Pete) & Mildred Watson also of Robinson, KS.  

A Celebration of Sheri’s life is planned 11:30 a.m. Sunday, September 20, at the Robinson Community Center, 118 Parsons, Robinson, with fellowship and a meal to follow.   Victor Haworth will officiate.

Memorial contributions are suggested to the Brown County Humane Society, sent in care of the funeral home, 124 S 7th St., Hiawatha 66434.
