WESTMINSTER - Cheryl A. (Bonk) Spaulding, 53, of 394 South Ashburnham Road, died peacefully Tuesday, January 17, 2017 in UMASS Memorial Medical Center, University Campus, Worcester.
She was born in Hinsdale, Illinois, daughter of Stanley and Judith (Herr) Bonk of Westminster and lived her whole life in Westminster Gardner area and was a 1981 graduate of Oakmont Regional High School. Cheryl also graduated from Mount Wachusett Community College in Gardner.
Cheryl last worked as a secretary for Gardner Visiting Nursing Association. She was a wonderful daughter and devoted mother and grandmother. She possessed a true love for family and truly enjoyed spending time with them, especially her grandchildren, Camden, Braiden and Logan. She enjoyed gardening and spending time outside in the spring and fall months. She had an interest in collecting antiques and did so quite often with her other half Brian. She was an avid animal lover and was always an affectionate owner to her dogs Buddy and Precious as well as many cats. Cheryl always thought of others first and was always willing to help in any way she could. Her huge heart was her biggest attribute. She greeted everyone with a warm smile, found joy in the simple things in life and never gave up on anyone. She will be forever remembered for her strength and integrity. The only necessity for her was her family and her pets.
In addition to her parents and grandchildren, she leaves two daughters, Bethany Jensen and her husband Christopher of Clinton, MA and Brittany Wilson of Newton; her sisters, Kimberly Bonk and her husband Ray Lemek of Gardner and Christa Gorrell and her husband George of Ashburnham as well as several nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins.
