Raised and educated in Troy, she was a graduate of Catholic Central High School, class of 1965. She was a homemaker who always put the needs of others above her own.  Cheryl loved planting flowers, the New York Yankees, playing bingo and watching her children’s sporting events.  Most of all, she was devoted to her family, and they were a source of deep joy to her.

She was devoted mother of Brian Bourgault, April (Michael) Galipeau, all of Brunswick, Steven (Rebecca Bourgault) of Averill Park, Michelle (Thomas) Ring of Pittstown, Kyle Bourgault of Brunswick, Kurt Bourgault of Poestenkill, proud grandmother of twelve, Sam and Cassidy Galipeau, Nate, Harry and Mallory Bourgault, Liam and Alexander Ring, Sarah, Luke and Charlotte Bourgault, Brooke and Brealynn Bourgault.  Protected and loved by her two dogs, Finn and Sara.

The family wishes to express a heartfelt thank you to her caregiver and friend of over twenty years, Marilynn Roarke for her love and devotion; along with her caregiver Jenna Sheldrick.
