During a beautiful sunrise Sunday, November 22, 2020, Terry Duffey Palmer, 55, went home to be with Jesus. After a courageous battle with cancer, not one that she lost but a battle she won knowing there was a better place that’s free of suffering and pain. Terry is survived by her loving husband of 17 years, John R. Palmer; her mother Doris L. Duffey; a sister, Pat Nichols (Kenny); brothers, Bobby (Peggy), David, and Scottie (Lisa). Also survives John’s Family; a host of nieces and nephews; and a very special great-niece she considered her own child, Brooke Pulliam. She is predeceased by her father, Sammie Duffey and infant brother, Dale. Terry was a dedicated and faithful member of Southall Memorial United Methodist Church, where she held many positions.
