Everett E. Terrell

DANVILLE — Everett E. Terrell, 83, of Danville, went to be with the Lord at 5:15 a.m. Dec. 29, 2012.

Everett was born July 17, 1929, in Paxton, a son of James and Abbie Terrell.

He married Marge M. Hogrefe on March 19, 1955. She survives. He later married Connie F. Copas May 13, 1973, in Danville.

Everett is survived by his eight children, Donald Terrell and David (Julie) Terrell, both of Danville, Dale Terrell of Covington, Ind., Tawnya Morgan of Danville, Corey (Michelle) Terrell and Dennis Terrell, both of Nashville, Tenn., and Dwayne Terrell and Abigail Terrell, both of Danville; 14 grandchildren, Michael (Dawn) Morgan, Joseph Morgan, Regina Morgan, Angie (Dan) Coughlin, Tracy (Eric) Turner, Shannon Terrell, Amanda Terrell, Ashley Terrell, Dale Terrell and Trisha (Chris) Cooper, Bailee, McKenzie, Abigail and Cori Terrell; eight great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Abbie; his wife Connie; his six sisters, Ethel Peterson, Louise Frye, Mary Wright, Norma Elson, Mildred Terrell and Edith Terrell; his two brothers, James Terrell and Howard Terrell; his son-in-law, Joseph Morgan; and great-granddaughter Mazie Morgan.

Everett graduated from Paxton High School in 1948. He joined the United States Army in 1950, graduating from Food Service School at Camp Atterbury, Ind., in 1951, and serving in Korea until 1953, earning the Korean Service Medal and the United Nations Service Medal.

He developed his love for cooking while in the service and worked as a cook nearly all of his life, cooking at The Brown Derby, Holland Inn, Chanute Air Force Base, The Masonic Temple, Lakeview Hospital and Veterans Administration hospital from where he later retired.

Everett enjoyed cooking Sunday and holiday dinners for his family, telling stories of days gone by and watching “His” Cubs play. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Funeral services will begin at 10 a.m. Friday at Pape Mortuary, with Pastor Allan Rudie officiating. Burial will be in Danville National Cemetery, with military rites by American Legion Post 210.
