Obituary of Terry Lynn Faulkner

Terry Lynn Faulkner, 68, of Independence, passed into eternity on July 13, 2022 at Gallatin Nursing and Rehab in Warsaw, KY. She was born to Charles and Charlena [Chapman] King in Cincinnati, OH on March 10, 1954.

Terry was the selfie queen! This especially outgoing and friendly lady never met a stranger. She liked to shop and in her younger years she crocheted for fun. Grounded deep in her faith, Terry would read her Bible every day.  She was even known to frequently do her Bible study in the car before going in to work. Terry demonstrated Jesus’s love to everyone around her.  That wasn’t more evident than the years when working as a home health aide, she invited all her patients and those she cared for in group homes to spend holidays with her own family at her house.  She loved her coffee (and always used a straw to drink it) as well as all kinds of candies – chocolate covered marshmallows, peppermints, Paydays, Russell Stover’s jellybeans, you name it.  More than anything though, this generous and calm woman treasured her family.  Even when there were times that the road was rocky, she was steadfast to all those she loved, asking for nothing in return. 

Those left to carry on Terry’s love and light are her three daughters, Stephanie (Tim) Puckett, Sheree (David) Case, Samantha (Josh) Rector; siblings Mike King, Charles E. “Eddie” King, Tonya King, Thomas “Matthew” King, grandchildren Alexandrea, Elijah, Joshua, Jonah, Nathaniel, Mackenzie; great-grandchildren Logan, Marley, and TJ; as well as many friends and extended family. Terry will also be missed by her beloved cat, Abby.

Terry was preceded in death by her parents, sister Brenda King, and her grandparents.

Expressions of sympathy may be made to Alzheimer’s Association of Cincinnati, 644 Linn St. #1026, Cincinnati, OH 45203.  Please wear burgundy or teal if you are attending the services, as these were Terry’s favorite colors!
