Theresa Lee "Terri" Boone, 57, of Cape Girardeau passed from this life surrounded by her husband, family and friends into the arms of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013, at Southeast Hospital after a brief illness.

She was born Sept. 23, 1955, in West Point, N.Y., to John Thomas and Dorothy Glazebrook Jenkins.

Terri graduated from Murray High School in Murray, Ky., and attended Murray State University. Shortly thereafter, she met and married Mark F. Boone on Dec. 30, 1988, in Jackson, Tenn., to whom she remained faithfully married for 24 years.

Terri worked for 14 years in the accounting department of Mid-America Hotels Corp. She was an active member of Lynwood Baptist Church in Cape Girardeau and was an effective outreach leader in her LifeGroup class at Lynwood, keeping everyone informed of needs and ministry opportunities. She had a passion for witnessing and sharing the love of Christ. Her family can attest that she was the communication glue that kept family connected, literally from coast to coast.

Terri was warm, kind, outgoing and positive and a faithful friend. Her infectious laugh will be missed.

Boone of Cape Girardeau; sister, Kimberly Nadine Jenkins of Jackson, Tenn.; brother, John Mark (Marketia) Jenkins of Jackson, Tenn.; mother-in-law, Elizabeth Rose Boone of Louisville, Ky.; and a sister-in-law, Laura (John) Thompson of Shepherdsville, Ky.
