December 23, 1969 — December 9, 2017
Krista M. Cherry passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017.
Krista was born Dec. 23, 1969 in Glens Falls and was a resident there for most of her life. She also lived in New Orleans, Louisiana and Jacksonville, Florida.
She enjoyed her time working in the automotive repair industry for 22+ years, proudly running circles around everyone in a male-dominated profession, and was a server at Red Lobster in Jacksonville and Outback Steakhouse in Queensbury. Everyone she met knows she lit up and owned any room she stepped into. Her perky personality and quick wit kept everyone in a good mood, no matter the occasion. She loved New Orleans and Mardi Gras, southern cooking, a good laugh and her friends, family and children.
Krista is survived by her sister, Jennifer Cherry; her children, Joshua Copeland, Justin Copeland, Kasia Skarzynski, Sydney Wainerdi and Chase Caldwell; her ‘grankitties’ (as she liked to call them), Digits and Fiona; and her longtime friend, Stacie Wakely.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Brian Keith Stoddard Cherry; her mother, Maureen “Momo” Moon; and her maternal grandparents, Joyce Moon Ewashko and Harry “Bumpa” Moon.
A celebration of life was held in her honor with close friends and family on Dec. 15, 2017. There are no services planned.
