Terry Sorrell, 73, of Morehead City, North Carolina, passed away Sunday, August 27, 2023, at the Crystal Bluffs Rehabilitation and Health Care Center.

Terry was born on January 30, 1950, in Bethesda, Maryland, to the late Fred and Grace Sorrell. Terry exemplified a strong work ethic that inspired her students and colleagues alike. Her passion for teaching was evident in her over 50 years of dedication. Terry had a love for literature and never lost her thirst for knowledge. She was a woman of strong faith and enjoyed reading devotionals by her koi pond. Terry loved her family with all her heart and was so proud of her beloved grandchildren.

Beyond her commitment to education, Terry had a deep love of gardening, cultivating beauty and life in every corner she touched. Her green thumb and nurturing spirit created serene spaces that reflected her love for nature. May her legacy live on in all the countless lives she touched.

Those remaining to cherish her memory are her sons, Frederick Winstead (Lisa Winstead) of Morehead City, Jeffrey Winstead (Dawn Winstead) of Winterville, NC; sister, Erin Winner (Ronald Winner) of Jacksonville, NC; and grandchildren, Jordan Winstead, Matthew Winstead, Jacob Winstead, and Annelise Winstead.

In addition to her parents, Terry was preceded in death by her sisters, Peggy Spence and Pam Adams.
