Obituary for Sheridan Nicole Bautista
Sheridan Nicole Bautista, eight year old daughter of Jim and Melinda Bautista of Altus, flew into the arms of Jesus Christ on Thursday, December 8, 2011 at OU Children"s Hospital in Oklahoma City. Sheridan"s Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at First Baptist Church of Altus with Pastor Jeff Moore officiating. The Bautista family will host a visitation from 6:30 " 8:00 p.m. Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at Lowell-Tims Funeral Home in Altus, Oklahoma.
Sheridan was born on September 16, 2003 in Altus, Oklahoma. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, on March 9, 2011. She was a second grader at Navajo Elementary School. She was a dance student at Off the Wall Productions, and she loved her dance teacher Miss Leah very much. Sheridan was always dancing and singing where ever she went. When she was not at the dance studio, she was on the softball field with her Navajo teammates. She also enjoyed playing with her dogs Minnie and Mia. Sheridan would spend her Wednesday evenings at First Baptist with her fellow G.A.s (Girls in Action). She loved the Lord with her whole heart, and knew what it meant to be saved.
The biggest impact on lives still continues with family and friends. Her presence will live on through them from now on. Her family will honor her life and the way she lived it through their lives. Those who had the honor of meeting Sheridan are better people because of her.
The measure of life cannot be judged on time. It can only be measured by the quality of the life one lives and the light one"s life projects onto others. With that, Sheridan led an amazing and productive life. She will be missed, but never forgotten by all who knew and loved her.
She is survived by her parents, Jim and Melinda Bautista, of Altus; her two sisters, Sophia Monreal and husband, Michael, and their child Mikey, of San Antonio, Texas, and Stephanie Bautista and her fianc", Corbin Wimer of Norman, Oklahoma; her two brothers, Steven Bautista and Skylar Bautista of Altus, Oklahoma; her Grandparents, Gilbert and Maria Montes of Midland, Texas and Javier and Mary Ellen of San Antonio, Texas; her Uncle Gilbert and Aunt Julie Montes, and their children Ashlee, Georgia, Isaac, and Gracie of Abilene, Texas; and her Uncle Henry and Aunt Laura Galindo, and their children Alexandria and Adison of San Antonio, Texas.
Preceding her in death and welcoming her into Heaven are her Great Grandmothers, Savina Torrez , Cirenia Montes, Petra Salas, and Celestina Bautista; Great Grandfathers, Eloy Torrez, Fermin Montes, Ladislado Salas, and Vincente Bautista; Great Uncle, Rufino Sanchez; and Great Aunts, Dolores M. Davis and Diana Sanchez.
The Bautista Family would like to extend their appreciation to the Altus and Navajo communities for all of their love, prayers, and support for our sweet Sheridan throughout this difficult journey.
