Warren — Cheyenne E. Cesarini, 27, became the most beautiful angel in the arms of Jesus Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019.

Born March 2, 1992, in Dunedin, Fla., she was the daughter of Shannon L. Cesarini. From an early age, Cheyenne was a caregiver at heart. She spent countless happy hours helping her mom raise her three younger siblings. She loved nothing more than carting her baby brother, Coleby, around on her hip when she was just 13 years old.

Cheyenne attended school in Maine and graduated from Georges Valley High School.

As a young girl, Cheyenne enjoyed trips each summer with her grandmother, Diana Cesarini, traveling to different Thoroughbred horse tracks where her grandmother was a trainer. Together they saw many magnificent sights and had many adventures.

Although she spent many years a waitress, she returned to what she knew and loved, and was most recently attending the Aveda Institute in Augusta to become a cosmetologist. She was raised in her mother’s hair salon, and was always helpful and involved, even learning how to give a good shampoo at age 5. With her mother’s support, she was naturally gifted in all things beauty, especially eyebrows, nails and makeup. Her family and friends remember how she would spend hours making sure her own eyebrows were "on fleek" (or perfectly executed).

Always social, she loved spending time with her friends and family, hanging out at the beach and going swimming. Her children were her world and she loved them more than anything.

She will be sadly missed by all who loved her.

Predeceased by her maternal grandfather, Joseph Cesarini, and her maternal great-grandmother, Louise Linscott, Cheyenne is survived by her mother and stepfather, Shannon Butler and her husband, Rick, of Warren; her son, Amari Joseph King Ford; her daughter, Illauni Rayne Ford, both of Warren; her maternal grandmother, Diana Cesarini, of Thomaston; her siblings, Coleby Ridgley, twins Sirenna and Logan Butler, all of Warren; a stepsister, Autumn Butler, of Sidney; her uncle Joel Cesarini of Thomaston; great-uncle and aunt Nathan and Thelma Fuller of Spruce Head; several aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as too many friends to count.

A potluck celebration of Cheyenne’s life will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, at American Legion Post No. 37, Starr Street, Thomaston. Friends and family are invited to bring a favorite dish to share.

In lieu of flowers, donations will be accepted to assist Cheyenne’s children as they grow; checks should be written to Shannon Butler, c/o Midcoast Federal Credit Union, 209 New County Road, Thomaston, ME 04861.

Arrangements are with Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, Rockland.
