October 20, 1948 — February 16, 2020

Delores Cherie Layne, age 71, of rural Chillicothe, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at UnityPoint Health Methodist in Peoria, after fighting an eight year battle with cancer.

Cherie was born on October 20, 1948 in East Chicago, IN to Russell and Berniece (Crum) Ayersman. She married Richard Layne on February 15, 1969 in Cedar Lake, IN.
