Cheyenne Calista Capin, 30 of Beaver Dam, formerly of Watertown, passed away on Saturday, December 17, 2022, at the Marshfield Medical Center of Beaver Dam.
Cheyenne, also affectionately known as “Pie”, was born November 24, 1992, in Milwaukee, the daughter of John and Pamela (Adams) Capin. Cheyenne loved adventures. She had a passion for animals and wanted to help every stray she found. She went to Toccoa Falls in Georgia to get a degree in Outdoor Ministry, however due to medical issues she had to change her major to Philosophy and received her Associates Degree. Cheyenne went on to receive a Bachelor’s Degree Suma Cum Laud in Criminal Justice. Cheyenne was a hurdler through middle and high school, and she enjoyed it so much that after college she came to back to coach an amazing group of kids in hurdles. She was a very caring person who would help anyone she could with a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, or a hug for everything else. Cheyenne did everything without expecting anything in return. Her smile lit up a room. Cheyenne found out she had a rare brain tumor in 2017 and for 5 years she was a brave warrior fighting the battle. Cheyenne and her amazing support team never gave up; her body went through so much and just needed to rest. Her outlook throughout was never discouraged, if something didn’t work, she would say that it was okay and ask what the next step was. Cheyenne worked too much, working 2 jobs and taking little time for herself to enjoy her life more. She had a strong Christian faith that provided comfort to her, and she knew that she would spend her time with Jesus.
A true angel heaven has gained, while we will miss her greatly here. Shine bright for all of us until we see you again.
