Obituary - Terry L. Blackwell

Terry L. Blackwell passed away on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at her home in Clinton, Missouri. Terry's wishes were to be cremated. There are no services at this time.

Terry aka “Nonnie” was born on August 1, 1956 in Carthage, New York. Terry lived life large and to the fullest and on her terms. 

She enjoyed spending time with family, having large home cooked dinners, camping, fishing, BINGO, animals, Elvis, and collecting items with wolves, jewelry, and stones. 

The thing she loved the most was spending time with the grandkids. She was always so excited to show them simple pleasures from making paper airplanes to playing games at the kitchen table. 

She lived her final days exhilarated to see the kids opening Christmas gifts and spending the day cuddled with her youngest grandson. Life was an adventure in many senses with her. She was full of sass, spunkiness, and set in her ways, but loved dearly by all.

Terry is preceded in death by her parents, two older sisters Elaine Lynch and Linda Potter, and her grandson Damian Grimm.

Survivors include her children Jessica Blackwell of Carthage, New York and Adam (Amanda) Blackwell of Clinton, Missouri, 8 grandchildren; Ashton, Ethan, “Lil” Vic, Drayden, Gage, Brendan, Xander, and Maverick, and her uncle, aunts, nieces, nephew, cousins, and a host of other family and friends.

The family would like to give a thanks to family, friends, neighbors, first responders, paramedics, the Clinton, Dialysis Clinic, and the ATS bus service for all of their kind words, gestures, and prayers throughout the last year and a half of medical struggles.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Vansant-Mills Funeral Home in Clinton, Missouri.
