Frances Goodson Terry, 80, passed away at Methodist North Hospital in Memphis on Saturday, January 23, 2021. Born May 22, 1940, in Houston, MS, she was the daughter of the late Frank Lancaster and the late Mary Tuneberg Lancaster. She attended Bruce High School, and was retired after working as a CNA for many years with Calhoun County Nursing Homes. She was a member of Simonton Assembly of God in Mumford, TN. She was very involved with her church, and also served as the director of the Angel Food Ministry. Among her many hobbies were gardening, scrapbooking, and sewing. She also loved puzzles and word games, and had her TV on the “Gameshow Network” most of the time. Above all, she loved her family, and cherished the time spent with them, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends, but her memory will live on forever in their hearts.
