Obituary

Cheryl Denise Lapensee (Wells) died on September 11, 2018 at her home in St. Clair Shores, MI after a long struggle against cancer. She was 54. Cheryl is survived by her husband Dennis, daughter Hannah, mother Audrey N. Kalliel Wells, father Warren F. Wells, brothers Gregory (wife Muna, children Kareem and Sarah) and David. Cheryl is preceded in death by grandparents Alex and Najla Kalliel.
Cheryl was born on July 26, 1964 in Lincoln Park, MI. After graduation from Lincoln Park High School (1982), Cheryl earned her Bachelor’s (1990) and Master’s degrees (1996) at Eastern Michigan University with a specialty in Early Childhood Education. Cheryl taught elementary school for 25 years, mostly in the Grosse Pointe Public School System. She loved her students and they, in turn, gravitated to her smile and warmth.
Cheryl cherished her beloved daughter Hannah who provided laughter, enthusiasm, inspiration, and ultimately peace during her mother’s final illness. Many of Cheryl’s lifetime friends so loved her that they sacrificed many hours and days assisting the family to care for Cheryl in her time of need. Both friends and family will now deeply grieve the loss of Cheryl’s unbridled spirit.
Visitation will be at the A.H. Peters Funeral Home (20705 Mack Ave, Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 48236) from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on September 12. Funeral Service will be at 12:00 pm. Burial will be at Roseland Park Cemetery (29001 Woodward Ave, Berkley, MI 48072).
