July 5, 1960 – Jan. 28, 2024
Hudson – Cheryl Ann (Beaulieu) Rooney passed away peacefully on January 28, 2024, surrounded by her family. She was 63 years old.
She was born on July 5, 1960, in Cambridge, Massachusetts to Albert J. and Rosalie M. (Couras) Beaulieu, the first of their six children.
Cheryl leaves behind her husband Thomas Rooney, daughters Shannon Rooney and Emily Rooney and her partner Nick Charles, granddaughter Brinley Charles, grandson Nicholas Charles Jr. all of Hudson MA, her mother Rosalie Beaulieu of Hudson MA, and siblings James Beaulieu and his wife Jeannie of Milford MA, David Beaulieu and his wife Cory of Hopedale MA, Mark Beaulieu of Margate FL, Lisa Holverson and her husband Todd of Hudson MA, and Amy Palmer and her husband Dale of Hilliard FL. Cheryl also leaves behind nine nieces and nephews and their families, and many cousins. Cheryl was preceded in death by her father Albert Beaulieu in 2005 and her sister-in-law Tammy Beaulieu (Mark) in 2017. Cheryl also leaves behind her beloved dog Fritz and cat Chief.
Cheryl lived in Somerville and Everett until her parents bought their home in Hudson in 1967. Cheryl was educated in Hudson Public Schools and graduated from Hudson High School in 1978. She continued her studies and was so proud to become a registered nurse. She spent 30 years as a skilled and compassionate nurse, ending her nursing career at Newton-Wellesley Alzheimer’s Center in 2009 when she retired early.
In her spare time, Cheryl adored being “CiCi” (grandma) and “best playmate” to her beloved grandchildren Brinley and Nicholas. She absolutely cherished her annual summer trips to Cape Cod with her daughters and watching the Boston Bruins and Boston Red Sox play. She also enjoyed reading, playing online games, watching the Game Show Network and Hallmark channels, and baking for family and friends. There was never a shortage of delicious desserts at family celebrations!
