Obituary for Sharon 'Sheri' Dornhecker

Sharon 'Sheri' Dornhecker, formally of Dallas Oregon, age 72, passed away peacefully on October 22nd, 2019 at her home in LaPine, Oregon surrounded by her family. Sheri was preceded in death by her Mother Virginia L. Dyer and Stepdad Wendell 'Pete' Dyer of Salem and her Father Leo Rojas of Sacramento, Ca. She is survived by her Husband Fred Dornhecker and their Daughter Amanda 'Mandi' Dornhecker of LaPine, their Son Jason Dornhecker, his wife Renee and their two boys Caden and Garet of Bend.

Both Sheri and Fred were Alumni of Dallas High School Class of '64 and High School Sweethearts. They married in '66 at Dallas First Christian Church and shared 53 wonderful years together. Sheri and Fred left Dallas in '74 when Fred enlisted in the Coast Guard which took them many different places and the adventures began. Fred retired from the Coast Guard in '87 and they relocated to Central Oregon where they were able to purchase a house and a little piece of land to call their own. Sheri enjoyed being a hair stylist and owned her own salon in Sunriver, she also attended Community Bible Church of Sunriver.

Her favorite flowers were Daisies (which she had in her wedding) and her favorite color was Purple. She lived life to the fullest and on her own terms, she had many interests that she enjoyed doing, but most of all she enjoyed her family, they are close and have a lot of fun together, but most of all she adored and cherished her two grandsons, they were her greatest joy. She was adamant about seeing them play all their sports root them on with her Grandma pride. Sheri was a Fun, Wonderful and Loving Wife, Mom, Grandma and Friend she will be sorely missed. The families statement: Even though she may be gone, she will most certainly never be forgotten, she will be forever in our hearts, our minds and within our treasured memories. Even though Cancer may have cut her life a lot shorter than she and we would have liked, she did live life fully, with joy and with a vigorous passion to thrive and survive for as long as she could... she fought with fists held high till the very end, we know that she is now in a better place free of pain.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will begin at 1:00pm Saturday, May 30th in the Dallas Mortuary Tribute Center. In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made in Sheri's name at (Supporting Metastatic Breast Cancer Research and Support). -Thank you!
