Sept. 25, 1984―Sept. 29, 2013
Katherine “Katie” Forrest Cheesman, 29, of Nashville, passed away Sept. 29, 2013.
Born September 25, 1984, she spent most of her childhood in Crossville, before moving to her birthplace of Nashville. A graduate of John Overton High School, she earned a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from the University of Tennessee. Smart, funny, warm and kind-hearted, Katie deeply loved her family and friends. She was generous to the homeless, and her love and compassion for animals knew no bounds. An organ donor, she lives on through the lives of others.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents and her father, Dallas R. Cheesman. She is survived by her mother and stepfather, Margaret C. and David P. Brandon Jr. of Nashville; sisters, Courtney Muse of Nashville and Nadia Cheesman of Lebanon; brothers, Andrew Cheesman of Nashville and Adrian Cheesman of Lebanon; aunts, Kate Barton (Sam Craig) of Hinsdale, MA, Toni (David) Weiss of Columbus, OH, Cathy (Mark) Croyle of Bowling Green, OH, and Suzanne (Doug) Younts of Winchester, IN; uncle, Boyd (Barbara) Jones of St. Louis, MO; step-grandparents, David and Carolyn Brandon of Brentwood; step aunts and uncles, Shannon (Alex) Lyczkowski of Franklin and Todd (Erica) Brandon of Tampa, FL; and many cousins. Her cats, Floyd and Stevie, and the canine love of her life, Polly, also survive her.
A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, it would make her happy to have donations sent to Walden’s Puddle Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Joelton, TN, or the Nashville Rescue Mission.
