MADISONVILLE, Ky. – Wanda Jean Cheever, 72, of Madisonville, Ky., passed away Saturday, June 28, 2014, at home surrounded by loved ones after a courageous battle with cancer. Jean was born April 25, 1942, in Louisville, Ky., to William Edward and Juanita Mae (Ewen) Henderson.

Jean graduated from Lindsey Wilson College and became a nurse, working in Obstetrics and Gynecology before becoming an industrial plant nurse.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

She is survived by her husband, Richard Cheever; daughters, Kara Southers (Josh) of Charlestown, Ind., and Kelli Cheever of Terre Haute, Ind.; son, Dr. Todd Cheever of Lexington, Ky.; grandson, Chris Chesnut (Lora) of Terre Haute, Ind.; sister, Donna Schneider (Don) of Charlestown, Ind.; brother, William Henderson, Jr. (Wilma) of Hanson, Ky.; nieces and nephews; other relatives and many friends.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held at Earlington United Methodist Church (201 E. Moss Avenue, Earlington, Ky.) on Saturday, July 12, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Marty Martinez officiating. Visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. until service time on Saturday.
