Sheryl Ann (Panek) Coyne

December 28, 1963 ~ January 19, 2019 (age 55)

Sheryl Ann Coyne, of East Longmeadow, has reunited with her loving husband Tim.  She was 55. Sheryl was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer and died peacefully surrounded by her family on Saturday evening, January 19.

Sheryl was born in Springfield, MA to Lawrence (late) & Teresa Panek.  She was a graduate of Ludlow High School.  She married the love of her life Timothy Coyne.  Sheryl had many jobs but the most important was helping to run the Orchard Variety with her husband and helped to maintain it after his death. 

She is survived by her mother Teresa (Joe) along with three siblings: Robert Panek (Monica), Linda DelNegro (Michael) and Kathy Panek (Michael).  Sheryl had the unconditional support and love of Tim’s siblings Joseph, Kevin (deceased), Michael and Mary-Lou.  She had many nieces and nephews: Kyle, Kayla, Tim, Michael, Kate, Nick, Andrew, Daniel, Jon, Amanda, Caitlin and Carleigh.  She loved her dogs, Bella and Katie. 

Sheryl loved the ocean and will be remembered for hosting Hampton Beach vacations.  She enjoyed Notre Dame football, fitness and fashion (especially shoes).  She liked to cook and bake and was known for her annual Christmas cookies.   Sheryl had a sarcastic wit and charm with a laugh that made everyone smile.     

Friends are invited to visit with the family on Friday, February 1, 2019 from 4-6PM at Nowak Funeral & Cremation Services, 15 Ludlow Ave., Indian Orchard. Family will share reflections and memories at 5:30PM.  

As a tribute to Sheryl we ask that everyone dress casual (Notre Dame apparel is encouraged),
