Terry Jean Bollinger, 67, of Jackson, MO gained her angel wings on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at Saint Francis Medical Center. She was surrounded by her daughters and husband of 47 years. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, nana, aunt and friend. She was cared for by St. Francis Medical Center’s amazing medical team of hero’s in the Covid ICU the last two weeks of her life. She was born on November 25, 1953 in Bells, TN and was the daughter of Russell Simms and Kathryn Daniels. She and her high school sweetheart, Tom Bollinger were married on July 14, 1973 in Benton, MO. They enjoyed going on camping trips & family beach vacations. Their grandkids were her pride and joy. She loved her family fiercely and left a legacy of unconditional love. She never met a stranger and was always quick to help anyone who needed it. She spent her entire nursing career caring for her patients with compassion, while teaching others to do the same. Those that knew her, loved her instantly. It was easy to fall in love with her contagious laugh, quick wit, and wonderful sense of humor. Her big hugs and beautiful smile will be greatly missed! She was the matriarch of the family who loved to get everyone together for celebrations. Christmas was her favorite holiday & this year she is spending it with Jesus.
