Terrie Oliver McCreight, 63, of Charleston, SC, passed away on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
She was born August 2, 1958 in Charleston, SC to the late Willie Mena and Harry Leland Oliver, Sr. She was a 1976 graduate of Middleton High School and received her bachelor's degree in English from the College of Charleston in 1981.

She served others in a variety of ways, working as a picture framer, a teacher, a bookstore clerk, a nanny, and a caregiver for the elderly. She loved the Lord and was a member of First Christian Church for many years, where she participated in VBS and several other church ministries.
