Kyle, Patsy Caroline Terrell (Cleveland)


Patsy Caroline Terrell Kyle, 82, a 65-year-old Bradley County resident, died at her home on Saturday, March 6, 2021.

She was born on February 27, 1939 in Burlington, NC, to the late Devoy W. and Pearl Phillips Terrell. Patsy worked for Sanda Hosiery Mill for over 30 years and loved the job. After the factory closed, she worked at Shering Plow. She loved quilting, crocheting, and dyeing. Patsy was an enthusiastic read.

She loved the Lord and baptized Christ in 1960 in the East Side Church of Christ, where she was a member for over 60 years. Patsy taught children’s Bible lessons with Betty Kyle for many years. She loved the Lord and was a great example of showing Christian love and easily forgiving others when she was wrong without holding a grudge. She believed the scriptures and the power of prayer and made this known to all of us specifically through her example. Patsy’s family brought her the greatest joy of all and they felt their love without a doubt. She loved feeding everyone who came to her house and no one ever went home hungry.

In addition to her parents, she was led to her death by her husband, Roy W. Kyle; and two children, Roy Neil Kyle and Kathy Michelle Kyle.

Survivors include their daughter and son-in-law Karen (Alan) Hunsucker from Cleveland; Granddaughter, Miranda (Brian) Flintoft of Jacksonville, FL; Grandson, Max Trew of Cleveland; Great Granddaughter Lila Flintoft; Brother Don Terrell of Cleveland; Sister Hilda (David) Andrews of Morristown, TN; special cousin, but more like a sister, Betty (Franklin) Kyle of Cleveland; and many nieces and nephews whom she loved as if they were her own children.

A service will be held in Sunset Memorial Gardens on Tuesday, March 9 at 3:00 p.m., attended by Minister Bill Maynard. Her nephews Tim Green, David Kyle, Doug McAlister and Danny McAlister, and Carson Gorham and Ethan Lamberth will serve as pallbearers. Honorary bearers are her nephews Billy Kyle, Jay Kyle and Eric Beck. A ceremony for the release of the white dove will conclude the service.

A private family celebration of a lifetime is on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. at the Fike-Randolph & Son funeral home. Minister Jeff Archey will officiate. The service is broadcast live on the funeral home’s Facebook page.
