June 8, 1962 – March 3, 2015

Los Angeles, CA (March 3, 2015) – The McClurkin Family gathered together today to say farewell to sibling, Cheryl “Cheri” McClurkin who died from complications of a massive coronary heart attack at 4pm/EST.

Cheri was a mother of five and grandmother of nine; she sang and recorded with The McClurkin Family over the years. However, she is best known as a playwright who recently penned her life story in the form of a riveting play entitled, ‘”A Cry for Help,” that was produced by her own company, Cheronic Productions. The family will ensure that this play lives on in her honor.

Cheri’s homegoing service and celebration of life will take place on Friday, March 13. The viewing for family and friends will be held from 5:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. at Freedom Chapel, 641 Broadway in Amityville, New York (631) 789-5050, and the service will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Meanwhile, the McClurkin Family requests prayers and privacy. All cards and condolences can be forwarded to Perfecting Faith Church, 311 N. Main, Freeport, NY 11520.
