We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Kelsey Funeral Home
God in His infinite wisdom called Ethel Lee Terry Henry to eternal rest, Thursday, July 7, 2022. “Ms. Coot’, as she was lovingly known, was a woman of faith, kindness, and a sweet spirit who was loved by her family and friends. Born May 29, 1926, in Anson County, North Carolina, she was the daughter of Robert and Maudie Dunlap Terry. Ethel graced this earth for 96 years. She enriched our lives, and her presence will be missed. May she rest in the Arms of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Ethel attended the Anson County public schools and was a retired employee with Albemarle City Schools, Albemarle, North Carolina.
A believer, Ethel was a life-long member of Colston Street Church of God, Albemarle. She loved her church and served as the “Mother” of the Church, Sunday School teacher, President of the Usher Board, one of the organizers of Colston Street Food Drive, and President of the Ladies Auxiliary, which included the nursing home ministry. Never idle, in her leisure, she enjoyed gardening and was a member of the Silver Fox Club. “Ms. Coot” knew everyone, and everyone knew and loved her.
She has joined her parents; husband, Willie L. Henry; daughter, Mary Williams; siblings: Patsy Martin, Robert Terry Jr., Marshall Terry; and sister-in-law, Ruth Terry in a place where every day will be like Sunday, and the woes of the world are no more.
A treasured life of love and legacy will be remembered by her daughters: Shelia Harris and Elizabeth Hall; grandchildren: Mondarius Henry, Jamaar and Shakera Pemberton, Donna and Cheryl Williams, Millicent and Maurice Hall; best friend/sister for over 80 years, Bobbie Lee Rivers; special nephew and niece: Chris Terry and Elaine Clark; a host of other relatives and many community friends.
