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.
A memorial gathering of Theresa’s family and friends will be 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 pm., Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at Broussard’s, 490 Cemetery Road, Silsbee. Her committal was held at Broussard’s Crematorium.

My condolences to Art and the family. Terri was a lovely person and I know she will be missed. My apologies for not paying respects in person, but unfortunately I have bronchitis.
I’m so shocked to hear of Terri’s passing. She was definitely one of a kind. And so beautiful. We had many good times when our girls were little and doing pageants! I’m so sorry for your loss.
Prayers for strength, comfort, and peace for Terri’s family and friends. An angel on Earth has flown away to Heaven, way before any of us were prepared to say, “see you later.” Terri will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by her LHS classmates and many Facebook friends. She kept us laughing daily with her memes and up-to-date with Facebook posts from her daily research. Terri was beautiful inside and out on Earth, so it’s hard to imagine how much more beautiful she is now in Heaven.
My dear friend, I will miss you greatly! I am shocked and heartbroken by your passing. We were shopping and traveling buddies. We always had much laughter and fun, even if work was involved. We had so much more to do… Fly high, until we meet again. Love, Ann
Saddened to hear of this loss. Mrs. Williams was such a sweet woman. Every time she would come into our office she had a smile on her face with such sweetness. Always enjoyed seeing her. Prayers for peace and comfort to Mr. Williams & Family.
We didn’t talk as often as we should have, but I will sorely miss you, my sweet cuz…
My Darlin girl. How I will miss you. My heart is so heavy
With your loss. I will be remembering all of our good times together which includes our trips together, visits, and helping me to move after Hurricane Michael reared
His head in Panama City. Let us not forget our weekend
phone calls which always included lots of fun and laughter.
I will love you always.
Your Aunt Fran
