Born in Charlotte, NC, September 5, 1958, she was the daughter of the late John Houston Clodfelter and Nancy Ann Corbett Clodfelter. Cheri was a very loving and giving person. She always put the needs of others before herself. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister.

She is survived by her husband of 21 years, Timothy Wayne Grant who she affectionately called Baby Doll; her son, Michael Stephen Tate and his wife Gina of Charlotte; two daughters, Dana Hamrick of Charlotte and Samantha Marie Cash of Rustburg; her step-son, Drew Grant and his wife Ashley of Pigeon Forge, TN; two brothers, John H.

She is also survived by very special longtime friends, Andrea Bradley, Jan Worthley, and Calvin Davis.

A service celebrating her life will be conducted at 12 Noon Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at Calvary Baptist Church in Concord with Pastor John Sines, Jr. officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

Cheri was always such a blessing to see at church, such a caring loving lady. We really enjoyed getting to know her as she sat with us many Sundays & would talk with me. We would pray a lot for each other I know she is rejoicing in Heaven! My prayers to the Family

I have known Cheri for several years and she was a very sweet and giving lady that always cared for others over herself. She always was smiling and happy at Thomas Road Baptist Church and always hugged me and Nolan before or after church. She was also a great dresser and always looked her best. Well miss seeing you and always love you!

My sweet Dana, your brother and family,
We send our deepest condolences. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I know you will miss your mom, but I pray that you find peace and strength knowing she is in the hands that we all wish to hold us one day. Continue to be the amazing daughter (and son) that she raised and her light will continue to shine down on you each and every day. We love you.

Chandra, Harvey, Devin, Christina and the fur babies. (Orlando, Fl and Charlotte, NC)

Cheri, your friendship was such a gift, and I thank God for you! We had some great adventures over the last 40 years. You always said we were like Lucy and Ethel when we got together! So many happy and fun memories! You had the biggest heart and loved without restraint. You touched the lives of so many people with your genuine care, concern and love. I miss you so much! My thoughts and prayers are with Tim, Stephen, Dana and everyone who loved you. Knowing you're with God brings comfort, but doesn't take away the pain of your absence. Thanks again Cheri, for being my friend and sharing your life and heart with me. I love you!

In loving memory of my mother...

If roses grow in heaven Lord please pick a bunch for me. Place them in my mothers arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her that I love and miss her and when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while. Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day. But there is an ache within my heart that will never go away. 💕💘🙏🏼🤗

I love you mom!
