Erika Renee Shinkle PayneFebruary 10, 1977 ~ January 2,2022
Our beloved Erika passed back to her loving Heavenly Father after bravely enduring a long illness. She leaves behind her husband, Cedric, parents Celeste and Terry Curtis, two brothers, Aaron Shinkle and Shane Johnson, along with many other family and friends. She is preceded in death by father, Gary Shinkle, whom she adored.
Erika was born in Murray, Utah and at age ten moved to Boise, Idaho. There she finished school graduating from Capital High School. She loved her independence working several places including Idaho Pizza Factory, and Mr. Frog’s Preschool and Day Care.
Erika loved little children and was always happy when around them. She loved music and met her husband, Cedric, while he worked as a Dee Jay for a local radio station.
They later lived near Hill Air Force Base in Layton, Utah. Erika waited faithfully while he completed his final tour in Afghanistan. Sometime later they moved to Columbia, MD to be near Cedric’s aging mom, Alma. The past ten years they have lived in Fairview, Utah.
Erika will be remembered for her loving kindness toward everyone she met. She never knew a stranger; all were her friends.
Funeral services will be held Monday January 10, 2022 at 11:00 in the Fairview 1st Ward Chapel (122 South State) with a visitation from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. prior to services at the church. Interment in the Fairview City Cemetery.

    Erika had a big heart and opened it to everyone she met. She adored being around family. She always had a big smile on her face. Personally, I will always remember her excitement to go to the local pool with all the kids. Peace be with you. Madland’s

    She will be missed. Will remember the times she shoved Darlene into the pool. Always had a smile on her face. Will remember the dance moves. Tried to get her friends ti the dance floor, even though neither of them knew how to dance…but they tried anyways.
