We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Halbritter Wickens Funeral Services
Cheyenne Lee West, infant daughter of Dustin Michael and Ashly Nicole (Mitchell) West of Berrien Springs, Michigan died unexpectedly just before her birth at 8:21 a.m. on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at Spectrum Lakeland Hospital in Niles, Michigan.
Ashly has been aware of Cheyenne for most of the past thirty-three weeks, and remembers periods of great activity, with some calm times in-between. Dustin remembers watching Cheyenne’s activity from across the room, and once being kicked awake – but not by Ashly.
Cheyenne’s family includes her parents, Ashly and Dustin West and Cheyenne’s brother, Dustin “DJ” West and sister, Ashlyn West; grandparents Karen West of Watervliet, Michigan, Billy Mitchell of Eau Claire, Michigan, Virginia Williams of Berrien Springs, and Ted (& Renée) Krajecki of Berrien Springs; and three uncles and an aunt, Joseph Mitchell and Angela Williams, both of Berrien Springs, John (& Elizabeth) West of Watervliet, and Robert (& Michelle) West of Elkhart, Indiana.
The family of Cheyenne West will be reminding each-other about her, especially when they see a beautiful sunrise, or blooming flower, or sometimes totally unexpectedly when they hear a special tune. They will be pleased to hear her name spoken to them by those who love them, and love Cheyenne. Please do so.
Arrangements were made at the Halbritter-Wickens Funeral Home, 615 East Main Street in Niles. Online condolences may be left at:
Cheyenne’s life has been providing smiles and twinkling eyes with the expectations of meeting her face-to-face. The mystery of her unexpected passing is providing tears . . . for a while. But the smiles return to her parents as they speak of Cheyenne passing-on to the next life, still active and kicking . . . and waiting for us.
