Prosper Cheryl Lyons

Prosper Cheryl Lyons, age 60, passed away Tuesday, July 9, 2019 surrounded by her loved ones. Prosper was born on June 5, 1959 in Cass Lake, MN.

God was the center of Prosper’s life and no matter where she went, she was sure to tell you a story or two or even three about how her life had changed, experiencing life with Him. She was devoted to her four grandchildren who adored her. Her gypsy spirit took her to many different places. She loved France and Hawaii but Breckenridge, CO was where her heart was. Prosper moved back to the Grand Rapids area after finding out she had lung cancer. Prosper wanted to spend the rest of her time close to relatives and friends and she spent 6 months enjoying their company.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Carol Lindquist and William “Billy Boy” Lyons; sisters, Billy Carole, Nancy Lyons, and Delores “Snookie” Scheff.

Prosper is survived by her daughter, Jasmine Charee Lyons (Jeremy Otten) of Elk River, MN; grandchildren, Jake and Hallie Hince and Ryker and Channing Otten of Elk River, MN; sisters, Zelda Scheff of Grand Rapids, MN, Desi (Leroy) Benson, Christy (Christopher) Bishop, Jamie Hilton (Greg Klingberg), Jesse Ahonen (Chad Lathrop), all of Hill City, MN; many nieces, nephews, and relatives; as well as special lifelong friend, Christine Hanks-Pirritano.

A Celebration of Life will be Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 2:00 PM at 39680 State Hwy 200, Swatara, MN. Reverends Randy and Donna Barstad will officiate.
