Cheryl D. Werner, 74, of Wells Maine, passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 25, 2021 with her family by her side. She was the beloved wife of the late Robert Francis Werner, who passed in 2005. Cheryl graduated from Westford Academy in 1965 and spent much of her life in Westford, MA until moving to Wells, Maine in 2001.
Cheryl was a fiercely dedicated, loving and supportive mother. She volunteered with the PTO, School Store, Boy Scouts and ran the Westford Academy concession stand at all sporting events for 18 years. Cheryl and Robert (Bubsy) were inducted into the Westford Academy Athletic Hall of Fame for their thousands of hours of dedicated volunteer service over the years. If there is a Hall of Fame for Elvis Presley fans, Cheryl would be deemed a number one fan. She loved all his music, and her favorites were his gospel music releases. She visited Graceland with her sister Nancy and spoke about the visit for many years. Cheryl touched the lives of many people over the years. She had an amazing sense of humor, loved fiercely, gave great advice, listened endlessly and was loved by all who knew her.
During her working career, Cheryl was employed at Raytheon Company (where she met her husband), and later went on to own and operate a cleaning business with her dear friends Patsy and Thelma. After moving to Maine, she held a lead role at the York Community Service Association and then became a founding member of the Leeward Charitable Foundation.
She is survived by her mother Bernice Axon; sister Dottie Tuttle; children William (Susan) of Seabrook, NH, Robert (Shauna) of Salisbury, NH, Laurie Lager of Maynard, MA, Aaron (Dawna) of Sanford, ME, Jonathan of Salisbury, MA, Derrick (Maree) of Sandford, ME and Nicholas (Melissa) of Nashua, NH. Cheryl dearly loved and was enormously proud of her 15 grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Besides her husband, she was also predeceased by her father John Axon, sister Nancy, son Larry, and son-in-law Robert Lager.
We love you mom (Cheryl).
