Theresa Lynn Andrews, age 64, of Whiteville, NC formerly of Ash, NC passed away on Thursday, the fourth of March 2021 following a brief illness.
Born in Columbus County, NC on Friday, the sixteenth of November 1956, she was a daughter of the late William Jasper Stocks, and Mildred Marie Carlisle Stevens (Robert).
Lynn attended West Brunswick High School and finished her schooling in Mississippi where she later became a Harrison County Sheriff’s deputy for several years. She later was a commercial truck driver and then became a cosmetologist for the majority of her life but was truly a jack of all trades. She attended Grace Bible Church, Whiteville, NC where she was an active member of the women’s prayer group and bible study. She enjoyed spending time with family, friends, fishing and laughing. She had a smile that could light up any room. To some she was Theresa, to most she was Lynn; but to her closest family she was aunt Lynn, Nanny or simply Ma. To know her was to love her…
