Obituary of Cherie Ann Pinholster

Cherie Ann Pinholster, 54, died peacefully surrounded by loved ones February 27, 2019 at her home in Bellingham after an extended illness.


She was born on 26th of July 1964, in Pasco, WA to Linda and George Fleck. Eventually migrating to Bellingham where she graduated from Sehome Highschool and met her first true love, Gary Pinholster. Cherie and Gary shared a beautiful wedding in 1984. They raised two beautiful children, Alicia and Kyle.


Cherie was heavily involved in the local community, always opening her door and her heart to disadvantaged individuals or people who just needed a meal and to feel loved. In her spare time, she enjoyed music. Those who knew Cherie know how important music was to her. One of her favorite things to do that she acquired from her late mother, Linda, was her love for gardening. There was a tribute paid by those who know her, “You really are the coolest chick we know!”


She is survived by her father and step-mother, George and Louis Fleck; three siblings, Carolyn, Tony, and Wade; two children, Alicia and Kyle; and two grandchildren, Tristan and Bapz.
