Cheryl Denise Landers

September 12, 2021

CHARLOTTE – Cheryl Denise Landers went home to be with the Lord Sunday evening, September 12, 2021.  She was born in Australia on July 30, 1962 to the late Charles Everette and Lena Mae (Larkins) Landers during the time her father was serving in the United States Air Force.  She spent her childhood and adult life in Charlotte.  

Cheryl graduated from Queens University in Charlotte with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sacred Music and shared her love for this music with her church family at Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church.  Her passion for her church played an integral role in her life while serving the Lord which was recognized by all who knew her.  At church she played piano and assisted in leading the Special Needs Adult Class and especially enjoyed assisting with the Wednesday night preschool children’s choir.  Cheryl worked as a data specialist with Wells Fargo Bank for twenty-three years.  Through her many years of service her supervisor described her as being as a dedicated and engaged employee who was loved by all.  Cheryl’s kind and gentle spirit touched all those around her where she had a listening ear to anyone who needed to share their problems, thoughts and concerns.

Cheryl is survived by her devoted sister, Andrea Lynn Landers of Charlotte, NC.

A celebration of Cheryl’s life will be 3:00 PM Sunday afternoon, September 19, 2021 at Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church with Rev. Stan Heiser officiating.  The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service in the church with committal services to be held 1:00 PM Monday afternoon, September 20, 2021 at Sunset Memory Gardens in Mint Hill, NC. 

Cheryl will be deeply missed by her loving family and all those that knew her.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be offered on behalf of Cheryl to Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church, 1117 South Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28203.

Arrangements are in the care of Kenneth W. Poe Funeral & Cremation Service, 1321 Berkeley Ave., Charlotte, NC 28204; (704) 641-7606. Online condolences can be shared at

    Cheryl will be deeply missed! To the family: I am so very sorry for your loss!
    Cheryl has been my friend for many years. We first became friends when we both attended Queens University. We both loved music and attended a lot of the same classes. She was very kind to me. We spent a good part of Graduation day together. Our friendship continued past Queens when I moved to Charlotte. We eventually had several friends in common. She was a very loving, giving, faithful friend and supported me through a lot of hard times. We shared a lot of good times too. I will always remember her gentleness, kindness, faithfulness, her love of Jesus, her love of friends, her love for animals, the joy of the Lord that she often expressed, and more. She is a good and faithful servant of the Lord.
