Cheryl Lynn Newcomb

Cheryl Lynn Newcomb, 46, of Peterborough, passed away peacefully at The Jack Byrne Center for Palliative and Hospice Care at Dartmouth Hitchcock while surrounded by the love of her family, on July 23, 2018. She was born in Keene on April 27, 1972.

Cheryl lived in Peterborough throughout the duration of her life. She worked at Staff Development for Educators for 20 years. In her free time, you could find her cooking and baking. She also enjoyed planning the next vacation in Wells, ME, her favorite spot, as well as making all those in her life smile. She was known to be positive in every situation and always did everything she could for others before herself. Cheryl would start a conversation with everyone she encountered. Family was everything to her and she never stopped fighting her cancer battle for the chance to care about the ones she loved.
