Theresa Lynn Williams, 65, of Lumberton, died Thursday, November 4, 2021. She was born on October 21, 1956, in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, to Jeraldine Bradley Landry McGinnis and Kernice Mitchel Landry.
Terri graduated from Lumberton High School in 1974 where she was a member of the Raiderette drill team. She married her high school sweetheart in 1975, and the two built their family in Rose Hill Acres. Terri was a mother and friend to all she met; she cared for and fed every person who entered her life, creating a second home for all her children’s friends. There’s nary a face in Lumberton that hasn’t received the blessings of her make-up talents, and her patient listening skills kept her on many a friend’s speed dial.
She was a devoted mother and Nay Nee to her two children and grandchildren. Truly, she was the greatest benefactor to her family; whenever she would visit, she left her children’s kitchens stocked with food, her grandchildren’s closets full of clothes, and everyone’s belly full of laughter. Never did a special occasion pass that her grandchildren did not receive a token of her love; she was a fountain of love and affection.
Terri enjoyed gardening, her flower beds boasting of her hard work and care, and her extensive knowledge of natural medicine kept her on call when anyone had an ailment. To all who knew her, she was the greatest beauty with the kindest heart. She thrived in the service of others, and her absence will be sorely felt.
Survivors include her husband, Art Williams; children, Erica Lux and her husband, Roger, of Trenton, Georgia, and Jonathan Williams of Austin; grandchildren, Alice Lux and Roger Lux; siblings, Dee Landry of Groves and Mitch Landry, Jr. of Onalaska; and stepmother, Patricia Landry of Lumberton. She is preceded in death by her parents; her nephew, Kernice Mitchell (Trey) Landry III; and her brother-in-law, Fanuel Kirk Edwards.
