Cheryl Anne Caulder (Butlin)

September 7, 1951 – October 1, 2022
In loving memory ~
We are sad to announce the passing of Cheryl Anne Caulder (Butlin). She passed suddenly in her home in Sylvan Lake on October 1st, just the way she would have wanted.
Cheryl is survived by her son Joe Caulder, his wife Yvonne and their two children Machayla and Jackson Caulder from Calgary, Alberta. As well as her long time partner and best friend Rick Dawkins, from Stony Plain, Alberta.
Cheryl was born on September 7th, 1951 and raised in Calgary by her parents Ron and Shirley Butlin. She attended Western Canada high school and followed that by receiving her teaching degree from the University of Calgary. She used this degree to teach kindergarten in Sylvan Lake from the early to mid eighties, impacting the lives of hundreds of children. She also spent much of her life supporting those in need and without a voice, working with and caring for individuals with disabilities.
Her true passion was nature and all the living things within it. She spent most of her time caring for its animals and doing what she could to support conservation efforts. Her gardens were always full and beautiful. She was a healer and at one with the energies of the universe. We believe that she is dancing in the wind that blows through the trees and talking to the birds, just as she did when she was alive. We will miss her with all our heart and soul, but know that she is all around us.
Cheryl will be cremated and brought back to the mountains to rejoin the land. She requested that there is no service but instead we ask that you take a moment and be with her in nature.
In lieu of any flowers for the family, if you so feel called to, we ask that you make a donation to one of her fav charities, the Suzuki Foundation or the Canadian Wildlife foundation.
