WESTFIELD – It is with enormous sadness and love that we share the passing of Cheryl (Ladendecker) Clark on Tuesday, June 15, 2022. She died peacefully surrounded by family after a fierce battle with cancer.
Born to the late Richard and Veronica Ladendecker on April 10th, 1958, in Wareham, MA. Beloved mother of Tyler Clark and his wife Alyssa of Middlebury, CT. Sister to Rick Ladendecker of West Springfield, MA and “Seester” to Elizabeth and her husband Tom Blais of Marlborough, MA. Grandmother to Ronan Clark.
Cheryl will be remembered for being a giving person, always willing to help anyone. Her loves included the beach, time with family, knitting, and every craft imaginable, as well as her cat JinJin. Over the last five-plus years Cheryl’s favorite thing to do was spend time with Brooklyn, her grandson Ronan and Madelyn. The little people in her world made her heart the happiest!!
Spending time feeding the birds, squirrels and a few black bears, gardening, and yardwork were Cheryl’s place of peace and solace.
