Cheryl Mason of Watertown passed away on June 17, 2020. She was 55 years old. She will be remembered as a kindhearted person and great friend. Her sister Lisa recalls how as a kid growing up in Belmont Cheryl enjoyed figure skating, ballet, swimming, and tap dancing. In addition to those sports, Cheryl participated in Brownies and Girl Scouts. She also attended Hebrew school and celebrated her bat mitzvah. She graduated from Belmont High School in 1983.
Cheryl would always look forward to game nights when she would get to play Scrabble and Sorry with her mother, Adele. But the most important accomplishment of her life was giving birth to and raising her daughter, Melissa. “Melissa was everything to her,” said Adele. “She called Melissa her ‘Scootch pie.’ Melissa was her life.” Melissa said Cheryl was "the best mom in the world.” "She’d drop everything to help anyone," she said.
One of Cheryl’s longtime friends, Lori Moran, said Cheryl would even stop traffic to give someone a hug. “She loved her family and her friends,” said Moran. “She had a big, big heart.” Some might have described her as a homebody, but Cheryl always made sure her voice was heard. “She was not quiet,” said Moran. “She was so loud.” Cheryl loved animals and taking care of her beloved dog, Cera. “She will be missed,” said Moran. “She already is.”
Cheryl is survived by her husband, Daniel Mason; her daughter Melissa Giordano; her mother Adele Turnbull; and her sister, Lisa Vincent. A graveside service was held on June 23 at Ridgelawn Cemetery in Watertown.
