TERRY SHEWANNA “TINKSIE” LYNCH was born on December 2, 1963, in Halifax County, North Carolina, to Bettie Price Lynch and the late James Edward Lynch. She transitioned from this earthly life to her Heavenly home on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, at UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
During her early life, she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and became a member of the Lee’s Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Littleton, North Carolina.
Terry’s formal education was received in the Halifax County Public School System, and she graduated from Northwest Halifax High School in Littleton, North Carolina, with the class of 1982. She then attended Nash Community College in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and obtained her Associate’s Degree in Business Administration.
Terry became employed as a Monitor Technician and Secretary with Nash UNC Hospital in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, where she remained committed and dedicated to her profession for seventeen years. Because ill health prevailed, she took a leave of absence from her duties in March 2017.
Among Terry’s greatest joys were shopping, sewing, spending time with her son, Dwayne, her family, and especially her nieces and nephews. She also loved cooking for family gatherings. Her beautiful, sweet spirit and warm, caring manner will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of those whose lives she touched in so many special ways.
In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Mollie B. Price; her paternal grandmother, Pearlene Lynch; and her aunt, Lucy Mae Cozart.
Those remaining to treasure the precious memories of her life and love are her loving son, Dwayne Cameron Lynch of the home; her devoted mother, Bettie Lynch of the home; one sister, Joyce Person (Timothy) of Littleton, NC; three brothers, Perry Price (Rose) of Baltimore, MD, and James Lynch (Chanta) and Jan Lynch (Tosha) all of Littleton, NC; four nieces, Jocelyn (Isiah), Jy’Alya, Jameriah, and Jorlin; nine nephews, Tra’vis, Emmanuel, Elijah, Perry, Jr., Eric, Omarion, Tyrese, Tyrell, and Zyhavan; one special great-niece, Makayla Tre’niece Lynch; two special great-nephews, Julian Isiah Copeland and Kaiden Cameron Rodriquez; four uncles, Willie Price (Michelle) and James Price (Nancy) all of Baltimore, MD, John Henry Price of Littleton, NC, and Dee Price (Dorothy) of Oxford, NC; and a host of cousins, other relatives, and many friends, including her special, loyal friends, Lana, Christa, Glenda, Lisa, Vanetta, and Shoney who will all sorely miss her earthly presence.
