Obituary for James (Jim) Henry Terry
James Henry (Jim) Terry died peacefully at his home in Madison, Mississippi on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. He was born in Lexington, MS, on November 13, 1931. He attended school through the 8th grade at Acona Church in their one-room schoolhouse and then graduated from Lexington High School. He received his bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green Business University in Kentucky. Mr. Terry returned home and went to work for GM Credit in Jackson for several years, then, in 1959, was hired by Chevron. In the early 1970’s, he was relocated to Chevron’s credit division of the corporate offices in Louisville, Kentucky, and retired in 1984.
Mr. Terry was a member of St. Matthew’s UMC in Madison where he taught Sunday school and ushered. He was very active in the Chevron/Texaco MS Chapter of Retirees and enjoyed traveling, swimming, running and watching baseball.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Pearl Terry, his sister, Jeanette Terry Green, and her husband, Howard R. Green of Crystal Springs, MS. He is survived by his only niece, Terry Ramsey, Don Ramsey, their son, Jonathan Ramsey, and several cousins.
The family would like to thank Mrs. Ozean Young, his caregiver for over 2 years. Her dedication, compassion and patience in caring for others was evident from the beginning and, truly, an answer to prayer that allowed him to stay in his home. Also, we want to thank the staff of St. Matthew’s UMC for their continuous love and support and Sebrell Funeral Home of Ridgeland for their guidance during this time.
A memorial service for Mr. Terry will be held on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary at St. Matthew’s UMC on Old Canton Road. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to suggest a donation to St. Matthew's UMC, Madison, MS, or the MS Animal Rescue League.
