Obituary for Mary Catherine Terrell

Mary C. Terrell, 72, a resident of the Hillsboro community, passed away Tuesday afternoon, May 7, 2019 at her home in Hillsboro.

Mary was born December 5, 1946 in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the daughter of the late George Claybrook Bolton II and Corine G. Bolton. She was raised and received her education in the Little Rock community, having been a graduate of the Hot Springs High School, Class of 1964. She later attended Henderson State College.

She moved to the Hillsboro, Oregon community, with her husband and family where she had resided since. Mary worked as a Banker for 10 years after her children grew up. She was a former member of the Reedville Presbyterian Church.

Among her special interests, Mary thoroughly enjoyed quilting, sewing, antiquing, and gardening. She was especially fond of her Purple-bearded Irises and Hydrangea plants. She’d always point out the different colors of them each season as the soil changed them. Mary could always find something beautiful in those she met. She had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh. Mary was always kind to people she spoke to in her daily walks and had shown concern for others and listened as a friend would.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, George and Corine Bolton. Survivors include her children: Elaine Terrell, of Portland, Oregon; Chris Terrell, of Portland, Oregon; Ellen Terrell, of Forest Grove; Anna Terrell, of Portland, Oregon, and her brother and sister-in-law, Clay and Gloria Bolton, of Little Rock, Arkansas. Also surviving are her 14 grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that remembrances may be contributions to the American Diabetes Association, 4380 SW Macadam Ave #270, Portland, OR 97239, in her memory.
