Graveside services for Terri Charlene Ruthardt, 55, were at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2015 at Pine Grove Methodist Church near Minden. Officiating was Bro. Ben Jordon.
Terri was born in Minden on March 24, 1960 to Charlie Joseph “Joe” Henderson and Laverne Mixon Henderson. She passed away Friday, Aug. 7, 2015 at her home surrounded by her family following a courageous battle with cancer.
Terri was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. What she enjoyed most of all was being a homemaker and caring for her family. She also enjoyed photography and spending time on her computer, especially social media.
Left to cherish her precious memory are her special friend, Billy Joe O’Rear; a daughter, Amanda Michelle Boyce and husband, Jacob; a son, Michael Gary Ruthardt. Terri leaves five dearly beloved grandchildren who affectionately called her “MeMe”: Amberleigh Walker, J.W. Boyce, Faith Ruthardt, Preston Ruthardt, and Bentley Ruthardt. She leaves one sister, Donna Henderson Babin and husband, Bubba of the Evergreen community; two brothers, Charlie Wesley Henderson and wife, Brenda; Mickey Matthews and wife, Melissa, both of Castor, Louisiana.
Terri was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Richard Gary Matthews, and the father of her children, Gary Ruthardt.
Gratitude is expressed to Gamble Hospice for their excellent care during her final days.
