Kerry Lynn Checketts

January 3, 1955 — March 4, 2024

Hotchkiss

Kerry Lynn Checketts of Hotchkiss, Colorado, passed away on March 4, 2024, at the age of 69. She was born on January 3, 1955, to Patricia McAchran in Delta, Colorado. In 1972, she married her sweetheart, Roswell Checketts, and together they had three children.

 Kerry was an accomplished equestrian, agriculturalist, and seamstress. No accomplishment in the saddle, on the farm, or behind the sewing machine, however, meant as much to her as her family. She was the quintessential wife, mother, and grandmother and understood – perhaps better than anyone – that no success can compensate for failure in the home.

Kerry is survived by her husband, Roswell; children, Tara (Michael) Boyer, Randy (Heather) Checketts, and Robbie (Leah) Checketts; nine grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, sisters Cally (Nick) Gallegos, Melanie Pierce, Denny Jamieson, brothers Jason (Gayle) Gallob, Chad Wallace, and Shawn Wallace, and several nieces and nephews.  Kerry was preceded in death by her mother, Patricia Gallob, and her granddaughter, Maddi Boyer, sister Debbie Margrave, and step-sister Diana Bertout. 

 A public viewing will be held at 511 Oak Ave, Paonia, CO 81428, on Monday, March 11th at 9 am and will be followed by a memorial service at 10 am. Immediately following the memorial service, Kerry will be interred at Riverside Cemetery in Hotchkiss, Colorado. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hope West, 3090 North 12th Street, Grand Junction, CO.
