Cheri L. Marsh, 72, of Whiting


WHITING — It is with heavy hearts that we announce the Marsh-Goodwin family lost their matriarch, Cheri L. Marsh, 72, of Whiting, Vt. She passed away peacefully on Feb. 4, 2023, at the Helen Porter Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Middlebury, Vt. She spent her last days surrounded by family.

Cheri was born on Dec. 5, 1950, in Bloomington, Minn., to Duke and Joyce Lumbra. Early in her life, the family moved to Charleston, N.H. Cheri had one cherished sibling, David Lumbra, who predeceased her.

Cheri is survived by her husband, Gordon Marsh, Jr.; her three sons, Jason Goodwin (Jennifer) of Plattsburgh, N.Y., Tyler Goodwin of Waterbury, Vt. and Andrew Goodwin (Christine) of Londonderry, Vt.; her stepchildren, Alison Marsh of Burlington, Vt., and Gordon Marsh III of Middlebury, Vt.; and her six treasured grandchildren, Harper and Keegan Goodwin; Connor, Cayden, and Caralynn Goodwin; and Ryder Goodwin.

Cheri devoted much of her career life to helping struggling high school students find their place in the workforce through her work with the Job Corps. She was passionate and dedicated to helping young adults find their purpose.

Our family asks that all who knew and loved her raise a glass and toast to good friends and family. Cheri loved baking, cooking for family and crafting. She made elegant, one-of-a-kind creations and could often be found in the early evenings sitting around a fire enjoying the sunflower gardens in her backyard.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation in Cheri’s honor to: The American Macular Degeneration Foundation, P.O. Box 515, Northampton MA 01061-0515, www. 888-622-8527, or Porter Medical Center Office of Development, 115 Porter Drive Middlebury, VT 05753. Online: Donate to ◊
