Cheryl Ann Rencher

July 26, 1946 — April 1, 2022

Cheryl Ann (Washington) Rencher passed away on Friday, April 1, 2022 in Jefferson City, surrounded by her three children and her close friends. She was born on July 26, 1946 in St. Louis, MO to Gladys Camper and Thomas Washington.

Affectionately known as “shorty” to some, Cheryl graduated from Jefferson City High School in 1964, and Lincoln University in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science and Psychology and in 1975 with a Masters in Education. She served as Director of Personnel and Affirmative Action Officer at Lincoln University; as well as Director of Placement before retiring from the University. Cheryl continued to work at Sears in Jefferson City until the store’s closure.

She had a thirst for knowledge which she shared with her children, always insisting that they “enunciate” when they spoke. Cheryl developed a fascination for Jefferson City history, specifically the history of the African American neighborhoods and the elders who lived there. She was a bright and shining light who never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Cheryl met with members of her high school graduating class every month until the COVID restrictions limited her interaction. She spent much of her retirement traveling, spending time on “the boat,” enjoying 4 hour lunches/dinners with her friends and taking cruises. Cheryl was a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, incorporated and a member of the Lincoln University Alumni Association.

Cheryl was preceded in death by her grandparents, Elmore and Ardell Turner; mother, Gladys Camper; father, Thomas Washington; sister, Beverly Sue Washington; and brother, Donald McNeil Camper, Jr.

She leaves to cherish her memory three children; John Rencher, Jr. (Tracy), Jacci Brown (Chris), Joel Rencher (Amanda); grandchildren; Kerwin, John F., William, Joshua, Jorden, Jacob, Jaylen, and Jace; great-grandchildren; Lyrik, Janiya, Lawren, Javen, Karter, Khy, Journee, and Leianna; brother, Ronald Washington (Nina); Sisters Sandra Washington-Durst, Roslyn Washington and Donna Washington, and a host of beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family and close and trusted friends.
