They raised their three children Jamie, Jonathan and Heather in Haverhill and later moved to Salisbury Beach. They shared a fulfilling life together, enjoying many vacations with family and friends. She had a shared passion for their log home in Twin Mountain, NH and the Beach. She was a wonderful, loving, caring woman who radiated a deep commitment and dedication to her family and friends. Her life was her family, and she was happiest when she was doing for them, and spending time with all of them. She shared her virtues of love, compassion and kindness to everyone whose life she touched.

She worked in the medical field for Dr. William Shalen, Dr Edward Yourtee, Andover Walk-in, and Northeast Urologic, then took the opportunity to work for Early & Sons Construction and RAM Engineering and most recently with the Department of Treasury.
Cheryle was a loving wife, mother, “nana” and sister; she will be greatly missed by her family. One of the things that brought her joy was spending time with her grandchildren, who lit up her life with their smiles and laughter.
