On Thursday, November 19, 2020, Cheryl Jarvis, loving wife, mother and sister, passed away peacefully at the age of 76 in Vero Beach, FL.
Cheryl was born on June 2, 1944 in Pensacola, FL to George and Marjorie (McInnis) Christiansen. Raised near Chicago she also resided in Ohio and Georgia before she found her way back to Florida in 2009. “Florida Born” was on her license plate and she was very proud that not many could claim that distinction.
Cheryl was very spiritual and found comfort in the Lutheran Church. When she was a young girl, she would sneak out of the house to attend church services and she made church an important part of her children’s lives. She had a passion for crafts, painting, needlework, pottery, jewelry making, which are proudly displayed and worn by friends and family. Known for her kindness and compassion, she knitted caps for the homeless and made sure less fortunate families had Christmas gifts for their children.
Cheryl was preceded in death by her father, George and her mother, Marjorie. She is survived by her husband Robert (Bob), her children Donna Lewis (Nat) and Darrin Clarke (Jennifer), whom she shared with her former spouse, James Clarke. Her extended family include her grandchildren Jessica, Natalie, Tristan and Camden, step-children Stephanie Pettitt (James), Beth Mitchell (Thomas) and John Jarvis (Lindsay), her step-grandchildren Sam, Vivian, Sarah, James, Dylan and Sage, her brothers Don, Paul, Gary and Mark, her beloved dog Daisy, as well as many in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and family too numerous to list but not forgotten.
A private service will be held Sunday, November 22, 2020.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
