Virginia Chloe McMillan Terrell

Obituary Date: Sunday, November 6, 2016

Virginia Chloe McMillan Terrell, November 6, 1942 – November 6, 2016.


A vibrant, funny, ambitious, and loyal perfectionist, she was known by her family and close friends as “Jenni.” She was a lifelong achiever. From her first grade award for deportment to her successful financial advising business, she sought to do more, be more and fill every second of living.


She was married for 50 years to Thompson Allen Terrell, III, Retired Army Lt. Colonel. During their married life together, they moved 17 times and each time, Virginia began again: new job, going back to school or a new career. Over the years, she finished college at North Georgia College, was Georgia’s Woman Of The Year at age 30, was a highly successful real estate broker, received an MBA from Georgia State University, became a certified financial planner and advisor, managed her church’s finance committee (Alpharetta Presbyterian Church) and held leadership roles in many civic organizations across the United States, including Rotary International and The American Association of University Women.


Her drive was overcome by Alzheimer’s around age 60.


Survived by her children, Lisa (Matt) Nyberg and Chip (DeeDee) Terrell, her grandchildren, Morgan, Chelsea, Catherine, and Sarah, as well as her sisters, Merry McMillan Faulk, Carol McMillan McIntyre and their families.


She is at Peace with God.


Graveside services will be held Wednesday, November 9, 2016 at 1:00 pm at Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery in Blue Ridge, GA with Pastor Don Allen officiating.  The family will receive friends at Ingram Funeral Home on Tuesday, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
