Cheryl Lee (Palmer) Sampson “Nana”, a customer service and billing clerk and lifelong resident of Massachusetts died on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, at the age of 73 at Falmouth Hospital on Cape Cod.

Cheryl was born on February 9, 1949, to William Palmer and Gladys Leonard. She graduated from Walpole High School in 1967. After moving her family to Marstons Mills in the spring of 1978, she was on the Cape to stay. Cheryl met Brian Pierce in 1989 and moved to Mashpee. On April 1, 1972, and February 1, 1976, respectively, she welcomed her two sons Rob & Kevin who were the most important things in her life.

Cheryl was a devoted mother and care provider. She was a dog lover, shopping fanatic and loved all babies. Cheryl lived for her family. There was no doubt that family was her priority and anything else was a distant second. She overcame a fear of flying to be able to travel frequently to see her west coast family. Anyone that encountered Cheryl, was met by her constant warmth, kindness, and generosity. She will be deeply missed by her friends, family and all that knew her.

Cheryl is survived by her significant other Brian Pierce; her sons Robert Sampson and his wife Joanie of San Anselmo, CA and Kevin Sampson and his wife Jacqueline of Plymouth; her siblings Linda Palmer, Steven Palmer, Peter Leonard, Darlene Leonard, Mark Leonard, Kathleen Palmer, Bill Palmer and Christine Palmer; her grandchildren Emma Sampson, Ella Sampson, Nathaniel Sampson and Samantha Sampson. Cheryl was predeceased by her mother Gladys Leonard; her father William Palmer; her brother George Leonard.

Cheryl’s family will be hosting a celebration of life event on Friday July 22nd from Noon to 4PM at Bourne Scenic Park on the Cape Cod Canal. The address is: 370 Scenic Highway, Bourne, MA 02532

When you arrive please tell the gate attendant that you are joining the Sampson family for a private event. They will direct you to a large tent at the bottom of the hill with the Bourne Bridge looming in the background.

P.S. This location is where Cheryl brought the boys for years and was the inspiration for Kevin and Jackie’s love of camping at the same spot.
