With unimaginable heartache, I say goodbye to my daughter Cherrisa. Born March 24, 1985 to a single 16-year-old mother, Cherrisa was raised in Pleasant Hill, Ore., and graduated from Pleasant Hill High School, class of 2003.
She married her high school sweetheart, Travis Gielish, in 2006 and had two beautiful sons.
Cherrisa and Travis divorced and she later married Justin Rainwater in 2017. They remained married until her death.
Cherrisa was a sweet mamma’s girl. She was always with her mother Jacqueline. They would sing and dance together . . .
