1965 - 2013 Obituary Condolences
SHERRY RIVERA Sherry Rivera, 48, of Las Vegas, passed away Aug. 31, 2013. She was the youngest of three girls, born April 21, 1965, in Chicago, to John and Yasuko Stitnizky. She grew up in Hawaii and graduated from Mililani High School, class of 1983. She married her high school sweetheart, Lance Rivera, and supported him when he enlisted in the military. They had a beautiful family of their own with two daughters and a son. As the director of casino administration, Sherry was a mother figure to everyone. The moment you laid eyes on her, you couldn't help but fall in love with her. Sherry was known to always put everyone before herself, especially her family. She was and will always be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, friend, and grandmother. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Lance Rivera; her three children, Shara, Sharisse and Ryan; her four grandchildren, Kyliah, Izyiah, Elliah and Logan; her parents, John and Yasuko; two sisters, Janet (Ian Ah Mook Sang) and Diane (nephew, Armando Mireles); and her "sister" Sonya (Eric Adams). Due to Sherry being laid peacefully to rest at home in the Hawaiian State Veterans Memorial, in lieu of flowers, we are asking for donations to be made to the family to help bring her home. Memorial services will be at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at Canyon Ridge Christian Church, 6200 W. Lone Mountain Road. Reception to follow the services.
