Cheryl R. (Carpenter) Proulx

June 16, 1949 — December 8, 2019

Cheryl R. (Carpenter) Proulx, beloved wife of John R. Proulx, passed away on Sunday, December 8, 2019 at High Pointe House surrounded by her family. She was 70.

Born in Boston on June 16, 1949, she was a daughter of the late Jerome and Roberta (Wilder) Carpenter.

For Cheryl, family and faith were central in her life. Cheryl considered herself a homebody and focused on her family. She raised her children in the church and was a constant model of faith in their lives.

While raising her sons, she also worked in food service at St. Josephs Catholic High School and later at Lowell Catholic High School, where she loved her daily interaction with the children.

While a member of Christ Church United in Dracut, Cheryl was particularly involved as a youth group leader, helping to organize group retreats and other events. Cheryl made strong connections with many members of the groups and has received comments and letters from former members that wanted to let her know the positive impact she had on them.

More recently, Cheryl and John became members of the Marsh Corner Community Church where she continued her commitment to her faith and family.

Surviving her besides John, with whom she celebrated 50 years of marriage this past August 8th, are two sons and daughters in law, David and Giselle Proulx of Dracut, Brian and Kimberly Proulx of Chelmsford; a granddaughter, Aleksandra Proulx; a brother Dennis Carpenter of Hampton Falls, NH; her special family, Peter and Kelly Brask and their children Rachel, Jessica and Kourtney.
