Terri was born on May 4th, 1961 in Chadbourne, North Carolina to Lillie M Ladson of Rockwell, North Carolina.

Terri spent her youth playing basketball for her high school. She had a passion for spending time with her children, being around her immediate friends and family, and kicking butt in a game of Spades. She loved to laugh and her laugh was so contagious others couldn’t help but join in. She also enjoyed shopping with her mother and reminiscing about her childhood in Chadbourne with her aunts, uncle and cousins. Terri was preceded in death by her eldest son Dion Smith and her grandmother; Bertha Smith, aunt Nora Smith, aunt Betty Shaw and stepfather; James Ladson. She is survived by her mother Lille Ladson, two children, Edward and Tiesha Simmons and bonus daughter Selenia Smith, aunt Corene Burch, and uncle Michael Smith, as well as a host of cousins and countless friends.

So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
