(February 25, 1929 - January 22, 2015) 

Myldred Ann (Hash) Terry passed from this life to her heavenly home on January 22, 2015. Myldred was born in Ballinger, Texas to J. R. and Bertie McGuire Hash on February 25, 1929.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and brothers, Charles Ray and James Weldon.
Myldred is survived by her husband of 66 years, J.B. Terry of Ballinger; children, Gayle Corbin and husband Michael of Spring, TX, J. D. Terry and wife Janey of Pearland, TX, Kathy Terry of the home, and Lisa Baker and husband Dan of Round Rock, TX. She is also survived by a sister, June Curry of Edmund, OK, many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. She is also survived by her “adopted” kids, B and Raji Ramadoss of San Angelo, TX.
Myldred has had a positive influence on many family and friends in her 85 years. She has mentored many young adults with her listening ear and wise advice and shared her talent unselfishly with all those who needed help.
Other than four to five years filing medical insurance, Myldred was a homemaker. She loved cooking and sewing for the family. She baked a birthday cake for an 80-year-old neighbor who had never had a birthday cake, and enjoyed that so much, she started decorating cakes for the public. She made many wedding cakes over a period of several years. In 1972 Myldred and J.B. took on a hobby, doing stained and leaded glass. The hobby got out of hand, and they opened a stained glass studio and built many windows for area churches and homes. Myldred loved the artistry of blending colors and choosing just the right design to create a masterpiece. She loved the beauty of God’s creation and masterfully used the array of stained glass to glorify Him in all their work.
Myldred always found a place of service wherever she was. She taught Sunday School for special needs children for over ten years at the Methodist Church in Ballinger and worked with the youth at First Baptist Church, Ballinger for many years. Myldred was best known as a “Prayer Warrior” by all those she loved and made request of her. She was a faithful member of The Heights Baptist Church in San Angelo. Myldred’s love for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is her greatest legacy and her greatest example.
Visitation will be at Lange Funeral Home in Ballinger on Sunday, January 25, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The memorial service will be held at The Heights Baptist Church, 4512 Sherwood Way, San Angelo on Monday, January 26, at 2:00 pm. Graveside service will be held in Evergreen Cemetery in Ballinger at 4:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made in memory of Myldred to your favorite charity.
