NEWPORT – Cheryl Pepin Gonzalez, 55, very peacefully passed to be with our heavenly Father and our loved ones who welcomed her with angels wings on Feb. 1, 2014. She was born May 24, 1958, in Rumford, to Paul and Joyce (Holman) Pepin, who are both predeceased.
Cheryl graduated from Nokomis Regional High of Newport in the class of 1976, and was employed for over 20 years as an accounts payable specialist at United Technologies Corporation in Pittsfield.
