A native of Ringwood, and later a resident of Franklin Lakes, Welch graduated from Ramapo High School in 1983. She went to Cornell University before earning a doctorate in veterinary medicine from the University of Pennsylvania in 1990.

Dr. Cheryl A. Welch
Dr. Welch was a dynamic woman, a lover of life, a great mom, a good friend to many, a mentor and an incredibly skilled veterinarian.
She became ill in December of 2010 and died 2 months later of pancreatic cancer. She is still missed by many. Donations in her name can be made to the Lustgarten Foundation (www.lustgarten.org).
