Cheryle had served on the Delaware Chamber of Commerce, the Miss Utility of Delmarva Board of Directors, and the Delaware State Arts Council. She had served as Trustee/Treasurer of Shiloh Baptist Church of Wilmington, DE. She served on the Leadership Enrichment Arts Program (LEAP) Board of Directors. She was a 2006 Black Achiever, a Howard High School mentor, and a member of the Society of Women Engineers and the National Society of Black Engineers.

Cheryle is survived by her daughter, Britney Pringle; sisters, Marie Bey (Antoine), Lisa Young (James), and Michelle Pringle; uncles, Nathaniel Ware (Priscilla) and Richard Taylor, Jr. (Debi); several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews; and her purr-fect feline companion, Jade.

22 Condolences for Cheryle Renee Pringle

  • I sincerely send my condolences on behalf of my entire Family to Britney and the entire Pringle Family, I am truly sorry for your loss.

    While Cheryle was an Amazing Big Sister and Woman, gone too soon, I am grateful to be counted as one of the people who was Blessed to have been touched by her Love & Kindness. From my age of 16 to 55, I had the privilege of her calling me Brother, always had a word of encouragement, and she believed in me always. To me Cheryle embodied Mom Pringle’s whole Spirit, and now both their Spirits reside with Britney and the Family.
    You both will always be missed, never forgotten and forever with us.
    May God Comfort and keep the Pringle Family during your time of morning. (Sorry for being longwinded)

  • My heart is broken after losing my dear, dear friend, Cheryle. I still weep, for her every single day. We wrote each other a few times a week, and had shared a closeness that was precious to me. Stuart and I live in England, but when we visited the USA, we stayed at my sister’s home a few years ago and Cheryle joined us for lunch then. I’ll always remember how special she was and we shared so much that day. Both my husband and I loved her so. Goodnight, Sweet Angel. We shall miss you terribly, but you will always live forever in our hearts. Love, Marie & Stuart Bright

  • My condolences and prayers go out to Cheryle’s family and friends. She was a joy to know and work with; a beautiful soul with a brilliant mind. I remember feeling sad when she retired; but I rather keep that sadness over this one. If she could positively impact me in the few brief years I knew her, I can only imagine how much she blessed the lives of those who knew and loved her much longer.

  • It was a pleasure to experience you while you were here. You were kind and loving to me from the moment I met you, even without out knowing me, that speaks to your character and loving heart. I pray you are at peace and that you watch over your family and help them find comfort in your absence. Send them your love while they wait to reunite with you again. Rest well beautiful soul.

  • To Britany and Cheryl’s Family my Prayers and Condolences. She was a stone in the foundation of our Shiloh Church Family and a role model for many. I will miss her smile and quiet strength. To her Family death gives us heartache that no man can heal but, love gives us memories that no man can steal..Hold fast to loving memories as the comforter will come. God Bless

  • Sending my heartfelt condolences to you Brittney and your family as you celebrate the life of Cheryle. May you find joy and peace in memories and in the love of family, friends, and your sisters and brothers at Shiloh.

  • I was saddened when I heard about the passing of Cheryle. Cheryle embraced me when I became employed at DPL years ago. She always had an encouraging word for me. There were times when we would have our belly laughs! She was very humble and easy to talk to. Cheryle saw things in me that I didn’t see in myself, and I will forever be grateful that our paths crossed.
    Brittney, you are in my thoughts and prayers. (You have my #). You had a wonderful Mom and thanks for sharing her with us!
