In the early morning hours of Friday, January 24, 2020, the Lord called Teresa Lee Reno Massey home to be with her daddy Ralph, Sissy Kathy, and daughter “Funny Fawn”.
Terri was born the fourth child to LaCree Little and Ralph Reno on July 7, 1954.
Mama was a rock hunting, driftwood finding, hardworking, Pepsi loving, fierce soul who loved Jesus and could often be referred to as a wild card and a good time. Everyone who knew Mom knows she had an unfiltered witty sense of humor.
Her heart’s greatest desire from a young woman was to be a mom and have a family. Her husband remembers her as a loving wife and partner for 25 years. Her mama remembers her being her only child that asked to garden and that she was loved so very much. Mama’s greatest joy was her 21 grandchildren. She loved to have slumber parties with them and let them wear her shirts. She would bake cookies with them and make her famous Mexican hot chocolate. All of her grandkids share the same memory of her love for Juicy Fruit and always making sure she had enough for all of them before handing it out.
She is survived by her loving, supportive husband Kevan of 25 years; her side kick Isaiah; mother LaCree Small; daughters Crystal (Wade), Teresa (Tom), Racquel, Ashley (Beau);, sons-in-law Travis and Tyson; 21 grandchildren: Justin, Zackery, Messiah, Unity, Billy, Jordan, Kazmira, Marcus, Kane, Kylie, Jesus, Jessie, Loisa, Lesia, Destiny, Zaya, Ren, Derro, Jayden, Mekhi, Aaliyah; her siblings Tony (Darlene), Gail (Elroy), and Tommy. She also leaves behind many close friends and extended family near and far.
Memorial services will be held Saturday, February 1, 2020, 1 p.m., at Heights Family Funeral Home, 733 W Wicks Lane. Reception to follow, all are welcome. Burial to be announced.
It has been said that some of our best memories have been made with Terri. She will be sorely missed.
