Cheryl Echeverria - Goian Bego
It is with a very heavy heart that we share the passing of Cheryl Echeverria this week. Cheryl was the wife of long-time NABO President and Elko Euzkaldunak Delegate, Bob Echeverria, who passed after a long-fought battle with illness. Bob credits his long NABO career, and activity in many other Basque initiatives, to the support received from home. This support has also contributed to Bob and Cheryl’s three sons, as well as grandchildren, continuing to be very involved in their Basque communities and NABO events, and their deep awareness of their Basque heritage. There will be a celebration of Cheryl’s life on Saturday March 30th at 4:30pm at the Elko Euzkaldunak Basque Clubhouse. On behalf of everyone at NABO, we would like to extend our sincerest condolences to Bob, Tim, Matt and Dominic and their families. Goian Bego.
