Elizabeth Kay Tew, 62, of Stella, passed away Saturday, June 29, 2019, at Vidant Health in Greenville.

The family will hold a private graveside service in Hope Mills.

Born in Delaware, Ohio, and raised in Hope Mills, Kay was the daughter of the late Ray and Catherine Terry of Hope Mills. Kay was a loving wife, sister, mother and grandmother. She was an avid gardener, taking particular pride in her beautiful array of flowers. She was also an incredibly talented crafter and cook. She had a very generous heart and loved to share her many gifts with those around her.

Kay is survived by her husband, Johnny Tew of Stella; children, Joe Hamilton and wife Crystal of Rocky Mount, Becky Deasy and husband Bobby of Charlotte and Chad Tew and wife Kerry of Southern Pines; siblings, Jerry Terry and wife Sandra of Stella, Phil Terry and wife Sheila of Peletier and Billy Terry of Hope Mills; three grandchildren, Drake and Jade, both of Rocky Mount, and Caleb of Charlotte.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Danny Terry of Hope Mills; and her son, Ricky Jackson of Hope Mills.

In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in her honor to the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, a charity that was very near and dear to her heart.
