TUPELO – Kathy Ann Terry moved on from this life on November 17th in Tupelo, MS. She was born May 14, 1953 to Henry Tutor and Laverne Rea Ward. Kathy grew up in Oakdale, CA and Pontotoc, MS before settling in Tupelo, where she worked at BancorpSouth and attended Cross Pointe Ministries. More importantly, Kathy enjoyed spending time with others. She was a very active volunteer, loved local theatre, concerts, and absolutely any other social event. She was full of love, light, laughter and was a joy to be around.
Kathy was preceded in death by her parents, and sisters Barbara Rea and Regina Thompson.
She is survived by her children, Shannon Terry, Brett Terry (Esther Flanders) and Joanie Pettigrew (Brett Duncan); grandchildren, Brittany Frederick (Bradley) Lexi Terry, and Hayden Terry; great-grandchildren, Bowen and Gus; sister-cousin, Melody Tutor; chosen sister, Debra Boone; and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins (who are all sure they’re her favorite) and more friends who are like family than can be listed.
There will be a celebration of life at a later date. To honor Kathy’s memory, her kids request you donate to the charity of your choice, volunteer somewhere you’re needed, tell a joke to brighten someone’s day or dance with your friends!
