Terri Jo Rhodes-Hamlin

Aug. 31, 1957 - July 25, 2013

Terri Jo Rhodes-Hamlin, 55, Galveston, passed away at 3:45 a.m. Thursday, July 25, 2013, peacefully at home and surrounded by her family and the things most precious to her. She was born Aug. 31, 1957, to John Rhodes and the late Joyce Stalnaker Rhodes.

Terri graduated high school at Eastern Randolph High School in Ramseur, N.C. She graduated with an associate degree in medical assisting from Ivy Tech Community College, Kokomo. She had been employed at Methodist Hospital, AT&T and worked at both Howard Community Hospital and St. Joseph Hospital as a medical assistant and loved taking care of patients. She leaves many dear friends at these organizations.

She was a member of Salem Christian Church in Peru and also attended Upper Deer Creek Church in Galveston for many years, where she taught Sunday School and was instrumental in teaching and guiding kids. She had many other kids, now grown, that loved her dearly and called her Aunt D.

Terri enjoyed reading, gardening (and, yes, pulling weeds), decorating, mowing, being outdoors and especially loved her dog, Chico, who was by her side in her final days.

Terri never met a stranger and loved to talk, without a “filter,” as she would say. She has touched many lives over the years, including countless hospital staff members who took care of her over the last several years. She lived her life by her motto and always “paid it forward” in helping others. She was a strong woman of faith and as we grieve the loss of this precious woman, we grieve with hope and stand on our faith to see us through the coming days, months and years. No more pain nor suffering, you are finally home.

She is survived by her son, Zechariah Hamlin and wife Mari Jo, Kokomo, who are expecting her first grandchild, Liam, Nov. 20; her significant other of 13 years, Harry Young, Kokomo; a brother, Scott Rhodes and wife Kim, Phenix City, Ala.; a sister, Jennifer Morrison and boyfriend Lalo Galvan; nieces, Beth, Emily and Bonnie Grace Rhodes, Phenix City, Ala., Tiffany Morrison and boyfriend Eric Solitto, Naples, Fla., and Danielle Gaston and husband Nate, Kokomo; nephews, John and James Rhodes, Phenix City, Ala.; close cousin Alice Porterfield, Orlando, Fla.; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
