It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dierdre McPherson, 45. Dierdre peacefully transitioned this life on Friday, August 11, 2023, at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in Fayetteville NC.
Dierdre McPherson was born on August 26, 1977, in Clinton NC, to The Late Lucille McPherson. Dierdre was a bright spark from the very beginning. She received her education from the Clinton City School system and was a graduate of the class of 1997. Dierdre discovered a passion for singing at a very young age. She was a faithful member of Smith Chapel Church. Dierdre was a beautiful person inside and out with a big heart and would help anyone in need. She also loved cooking, dancing, watching “The First 48”, as well as laughing and joking with her family and friends. She was a sustaining force in the lives of her family and friends. Dierdre was a fierce defender of her children, family, and friends. Dierdre will most certainly be missed. A stranger to none, Dierdre touched many lives through her gift of song and the impression that she left will not be forgotten.
