Terri Lynn Mangrum, 61, passed away on March 30, 2021, at UAMS in Little Rock.

Terri was born on Feb. 10, 1960, to Joe and Frances Crews in San Pablo, California. Her family moved to Arkansas from California in 1969. Terri attended school at Stanford School until the 11th grade. She moved to Greene County Tech School District her senior year, where she graduated in 1978. Even though she was only at Tech for one year she made some lifelong friendships.

Terri attended college at Arkansas State University and received her Bachelors in Radiology Technology in 1990. She worked as a Radiologic Technologist from 1990 to 2009. Terri became a caregiver with Elite Senior Care in 2019. Terri found joy in becoming a caregiver and her patients were like family to her.

Terri loved with her whole heart and had a unique sense of humor. Friends and family talk about how much she made them laugh. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, aunt and friend, but her favorite titles were Mom and Nana.

Terri is survived by her partner, Ronnie Barrow; her daughter and husband, Katelyn and Kevin Orick; her granddaughters, Gabriella Amaral and Kaely Orick; her grandsons, Kaleb and Karson Orick; her sister Sandy Layne, and her sister and husband, Dolores and Vance Mraz. She is also survived by a host of nieces and nephews and some of the best friends anyone could have.

Terri was preceded in death by her parents, Joe and Frances Crews; her brothers, Rick and Tony Crews; her daughter, Courtney Mangrum; and her grandsons, Nicolas and Jax Sackman.

There will be a Celebration of Life on May 2, at Brown’s Chapel Baptist Church. Visitation will start at 2 p.m., followed by a service at 3 p.m.

A memorial fund is set up at Centennial Bank under Terri Mangrum Memorial Fund, in lieu of sending flowers.
