Terry Michelle Rosser Wingate Williams
Over the years, she has worked in accounting and bookkeeping. She has worked for Lee County School District, with special needs children, which was her greatest love. She volunteered in many different places sharing her time at Beacon of H.O.P.E. and the Moose Lodge on Pine Island. She was a long-time member of the Moose Lodge and the V.F.W., in St James City. Her favorite passtime was meeting with all of her dear friends for bingo night.
She loved crocheting, volunteering and helping anyone, even if with just a hug. She will be greatly missed by family and friends.
A memorial celebration will be held Thursday, Dec. 12, from 4-6 p.m., at the Moose Lodge, 8903 Stringfellow Road, St. James City. In lieu of flowers, Terry requested all contributions be made to the Pine Island Moose Lodge.
