Our friend of many, Cheyenne “Mama” Bear, retreated from the land of the living on December 1, 2022, slipping peacefully into her forever cave, after being hospitalized at OVH due to pneumonia complications.

Cheyenne let go of the present on her terms. The little time that she engaged with the “not her thing” lifestyle in a local rehabilitation center was short and softened by her many friends who kept Cheyenne’s mama bear spirit engaged doing the things that she loved, such as participating in Qigong and Tai Chi classes in Carpinteria with her beloved instructor, Jessica, and visiting the Ojai Farmers’ Market, Rainbow Bridge, Sarzotti Park, Soule Park, the three sisters’ ranch, and chatting on the phone daily with her sister, Catherine.
