Terry Lynn Cummings Collins, 65, of Kill Devil Hills, NC passed away on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, surrounded by her family. The daughter of Art and Marion Cummings, Terry grew up in Corfu, NY.
In 1988, Terry moved to the Outer Banks of North Carolina with her children. She worked at various businesses and was a waitress at many local restaurants; she most recently was the manager of 7-11 in Kill Devil Hills. While she sang like an angel in high school musicals and church, it was her great pleasure to serenade everyone with her intentionally shrill and off-key singing during special occasions such as birthdays and holidays.
Terry is survived by her parents; her children: Kristine (Chris “Woody”) Woodruff of Wilmington, Delaware, Heather (Nathan) Smith of Salem, Oregon, and Karl (Ashley) Merritt of Grandy; seven grandchildren: Hailey, Keven, Noah, Keagan, Ryan, Emerie, and Brenden; sisters Barb (Jay) Terkel, Carol (Bill) Waldon, and Lori (Paul) Embt; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
The family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses of Duke Neurosciences Department for all of their support and care of Terry.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, March 2, 2019, at Outer Banks Presbyterian Church. The family will receive friends and relatives prior to the service beginning at 9:30 am.
