Pepperell - Paula Jean (Cousins) English, age 56, passed away on November 29th, 2018 at the Apple Valley Center in Ayer. She was born January 21st, 1962 in Fitchburg, MA daughter of the late Dale Cousins and late Carole (St. Hilaire) Cousins. Mrs. English was a graduate of the Fitchburg High School Class of 1980.
Following high school, Paula spent the next 36 years of her life working as a Certified Nursing Assistant in nursing homes throughout the area – Hillcrest, Birchwood, Freeman, and Apple Valley – until health problems arose in 2016, and she was no longer able to work.
