Shereen Smith, born June 4, 1964, was adopted by Theodore Randolph and Carrie Pringle. Our dear loved one and friend quietly answered the call of our Heavenly Father, went from labor to rest on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at the Atrium Health Cabarrus Hospital. Shereen was educated in the William Penn School District and graduated from Penn Wood High School, formerly known as Yeadon High School, in 1982. She earned an associate degree in Medical Administration from Fortis College. In late 2008, Shereen relocated to Concord, North Carolina to be closer to her identical twin sister, Sharon.
There was no doubt that Shereen loved the Lord. She accepted Christ as her personal Savior at an early age at Enon Baptist Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. When Shereen decided to choose GOD, she also chose to let Him have HIS way. Later in life, Shereen became a faithful member of First Baptist Church of Kannapolis. The spiritual nourishment she received from the Pastor and worship services inspired her.
She was a dedicated member in every ministry she served. Throughout her life, she served as President of the Usher’s Board and taught Sunday School for the church’s youth. Her passion to help people influenced her decision to become a certified biblical counselor.
Shereen loved studying and sharing the word of God. She attended Dr. Tony Evans Training School. Shereen was an active member of The National Association of Biblical Counseling. She was A Certified Teacher with The Evangelical Teaching Asst. She held the title of Vice President of Compassionate Care Ministries DE, serving as Asst. Director and Instructor of Compassionate Care's True Vine Bible Institute.
A music connoisseur of sorts, Shereen was embedded in a deep love for music. She sang with countless gospel groups, choirs, ensembles, and praise and worship teams. A particularly exciting opportunity came when Shereen joined a local singing group, Tony Fields, and New Testament Ensemble; this allowed her to travel throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware, ministering through song, as an associate recording artist on the group’s live recorded album.
Throughout her life, Shereen did her best to show everyone she met the love of Christ, either through her welcoming warm hugs, infectious, bright smile, and when cooking for others. Shereen’s sweet potato pie and family carrot cake recipe would “bless souls”. Her ultimate love and passion for food, friends, and family was evidenced at her annual Thanksgiving family gatherings.
Shereen leaves to cherish her memories, her only and beloved daughter, Candace Brown; her identical twin sister, Sharon Taylor (Ron); niece, Nicole Filipski (Zack); best friend, Tonda Maddrey and two nieces and five great-nieces/nephews; godmother, Rev. Patricia Mason; and godchildren, Anthony Thompson, Jaren Brown (Charnele), Elijah Hill, and her extended family, Prince Brown (Bonnie)and Jerry Hamilton.
We will miss Shereen’s angelic presence on this Earth. Her genuineness and kindness will forever be etched in our hearts. It is never easy to say goodbye, but knowing she is no longer suffering, has left a lasting impression on many and a legacy of pure love for others, will hopefully give us all comfort in the days ahead.
Lovingly submitted, The Family
