February 26, 1961 - October 19, 2021
MOCKSVILLE – Mrs. Terri Tester Benson, 60, found peace and healing with her eternal homecoming on October 19, 2021, surrounded by her husband and children after many years of ongoing health issues. Terri was a woman of strong faith, kindness, and possessed a love for her Lord. She never met a stranger and all that encountered her smile immediately fell in love with her. Even though her health impeded her ability to do certain things, Terri made every moment count. Her family was everything to her, especially her three grandchildren, and this trait made her a remarkable wife, Mama, and Nana. She taught her children to love hard and always show kindness to others. For those who had the privilege of knowing her, if only briefly or a lifetime, each were forever changed by her love and kindness. Terri was preceded in death by her parents Joe and Judy Gobble; sister, Christie Gobble; and brother, Rodney Gobble, all of Mocksville. Terri is survived by her loving husband, Wallace Benson of Mocksville; son, Travis (Jonathan) Tester of Indianapolis, IN; daughter Brittani (James) Wilson of Advance; son, Robbie (Krystal) Benson; two grandsons, Caden Tester and Jayden Wilson; one granddaughter, Avery Wilson; sister, Donna (Ricky) Link of Lexington; and nephews Duran Link, Kyle Link, and Austen Gobble. A memorial graveside service will be conducted at 3 p.m., Friday, October 22, at Ijames Crossroads Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. Franklin Myers officiating. The family would like to thank Terri’s dearest friend and caregiver, Jean Greer, and the medical staff of Glenn A. Kiser Hospice House for their tremendous compassion and love. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations be made in Terri’s honor to the Glenn A. Kiser Hospice House, 1229 Statesville Blvd., Salisbury, NC 28144 or a nonprofit of your choosing.
