Cheryl (Santos) Fernald GOSHEN — Cheryl (Santos) Fernald, 54, of Goshen, New Hampshire, passed away Nov. 8, 2021, with her mother and children at her side after a 13-year battle with brain cancer. Cheryl was born Sept. 24, 1967, in Tom’s River, New Jersey, and moved to Connecticut as a child before moving to New Hampshire to raise her family.
