Funeral mass for Frank Anthony Terracina, Senior, 88, of Greenville will be at 11 AM on Saturday, April 2 2022, at St. Joseph Catholic Church. The family will receive visitors at 10 AM. The graveside service to follow will be at Greenville Cemetery, under the direction of Boone Funeral Home, Greenville, and will be officiated by Rev. Fr. Andrew Nguyen. He passed away on Thursday, March 31, 2022 at his home.

Frank was a man ahead of his time, a visionary in all respects. He was the son of immigrant parents, Rose and Roy Terracina, who came to America in search of the American dream. In doing so, they instilled the hard work and ingenuity for which Frank is known. Arriving in the Mississippi Delta from Chicago, with hopes of owning their own business, Frank, Anne, and his parents opened Mr. Roy’s Steak House named after his father which brought upscale dining to Greenville. Having worked in Chicago in the car business, his dream was to return to that industry. When the opportunity arose in 1965, he purchased the Lincoln Mercury Dealership and fulfilled his dream. As Greenville prospered, opportunities allowed Frank to acquire his second dealership, Toyota, thus forming the Terracina Motor Company. His approach to marketing was brilliant. Every weekend people tuned into the Frank Terracina Saturday Night Picture Show where he entertained them with facts and figures of the latest models of new automobiles in two extremely long commercials. Frank was honored to serve on many automotive industry boards and the Dealer Council. He achieved Ford Motor Company’s Presidents Award for Customer Satisfaction and was asked to speak at numerous automotive conferences across the United States. He and Anne were fortunate enough to travel the world numerous times as a reward for his accomplishments. Rose and Roy Terracina’s hope for the American dream was manifested in their son, Frank.

In 1947, Frank met the love of his life Anne. From that moment on, Anne’s dance card was filled with only Frank’s name. They married in 1954; and in true Italian-Catholic tradition, they created a big family. Married for 67 years, they worked as partners in business and life. His love for Anne was boundless, and he called her his Queen.

To Frank, his faith was first followed by his great love for his family, and a close third, Ole Miss. He was so proud that all six of their children were Ole Miss graduates. On any Ole Miss weekend, you could see Frank and Anne cheering on the Rebels – Frank always with his favorite glass of scotch. He served his church and his community both actively and silently. Frank was President of the Saint Joseph Catholic School Board, Parish Finance Council, and Knights of Columbus. For his family, he fostered an environment to allow each of his children to excel in their own ways. He loved to include his family in all his interests, including sports, gardening, and travel. Frank was an avid reader and technology ju**ie. Some of the family’s best memories include eight people being crammed into a 21-foot Winnebago for family vacations.

When Frank was asked by his grandson Nicholas what he wanted to be remembered for, he said, “I don’t know if I’ve done anything really good in my life, but raising six children and sending them off to college and having them be successful is something that I’m most proud of.” Frank is preceded in death by his wife, Anne. He is survived by his children Steve Terracina (Margaret) of Oxford, Tina Morris (Don) of Greenville, Lisa Johnson (Buster) of Greensboro, North Carolina, Joseph Terracina (Donna) of Greenville, Anthony Terracina (Kelly) of Williamsburg, Virginia, and Frank Terracina (Nickie) of Villa Rica, Georgia. He has 16 grandchildren—Steven Terracina, Michelle Terracina, Christopher Morris, Anthony Morris, Anna Bosworth, Mitchell Johnson, Austin Johnson, Nicholas Johnson, Olivia Johnson, Joseph Terracina, Jr., Katherine Anne Nicholson, Maria Terracina, Abbey Terracina, Anna Terracina, Frankie Terracina, and Story Terracina.

We’d like to thank the caregivers who so lovingly and expertly cared for our father – Shanette Calvin, Judy Kingdom, Micki Carter, Gail Walker and Tywuan Washington.

Memorials may be made in Frank’s memory to St. Joseph Catholic Church or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Jimmie Dot Searcy, age 83, died peacefully on Thursday, March 17, 2022, surrounded by her family in Pelahatchie, Miss.

Mrs. Searcy, known by most Greenville friends and family as Dot, was born to George C. and Clarice (James) Williams on Oct. 15, 1938, in Foote, Miss. She spent most of her life in Greenville, where she attended E. E. Bass High School and married Paul M. Searcy in 1956.
Dot liked to keep busy. Early in their marriage, she and Paul both worked at Greenville Mills. Later, she earned a reputation for an excellent sense of fashion and art for customer service, providing 13 years of personal style guidance for her discerning Mannequin Shoppe customers.
After raising her two daughters, Dot began her 20+-year career in banking, where her stellar attention to detail and customer service earned her recognition as Employee of the Year and frequent unsought promotions. She continued to advance her education and was the face of a First National Bank ad campaign and the queen of the holiday party.

Beyond her renowned work ethic and head-turning beauty, Dot was creative and resourceful around her beloved home. For many years, she planted and nurtured beautiful backyard gardens; kept freshly baked goodies ready for family, friends and coworkers; and personally maintained the most meticulously mown yard and cleanest house and car for miles around. While she never considered herself a seamstress, Dot’s beautifully decorated home included drapery and pillows she created herself. She even successfully painted her own house and cut her own hair for several years.

Dot was never too busy to be a loving and nurturing mother for her daughters. She had moved to the Jackson, Miss., area in recent years to be closer to family. She was a long-time member of Grace United Methodist Church and supported her community in numerous ways.

Dot was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, her stepmother Bertha “Bet” Williams, sisters Bonnie Jean Fahey and Annabelle Trotter, sisters-in-law Edna Earle (Nerle) Davis and Barbara Taggart Williams, and brother-in-law Wesley “Sonny” Searcy. She leaves behind two daughters, Jackie McGough (and husband Oscar) of Pelahatchie; Robbie Searcy (and husband Charles Sawyer) of Austin, Texas; three grandchildren, Adam L. McGough of Pelahatchie, J. Ryan McGough of Flowood, and Brian P. Sawyer of Austin; three great grandchildren, Samuel, Riley and Castiel McGough of Pelahatchie; a brother, G. Danny Williams of Fayetteville, Ark.; two sisters-in-law, Rebecca Holm of Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Glenda Neely of Baton Rouge, La.; and many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family and friends.

Services will be Monday, March 21, at Boone Funeral Home in Greenville, with visitation at 2 p.m. followed by services at 3 p.m. Burial will follow at Greenlawn Memorial Gardens of Greenville.
In Dot’s honor, memorials to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital or Hospice Ministries are appreciated.

The family extends appreciation to all who have helped Dot through her long illness, including the amazing hospice team, who made her peaceful ending possible.


Surrounded by his loving and attentive family, John Madison Brooks, Jr., MD died peacefully at his home in Greenville, Mississippi on March 15, 2022. Dr. Brooks practiced Surgery in Greenville for 35 years with the Gamble Brothers and Archer Clinic group. He had expressed gratitude for his life in Greenville, for his professional colleagues, his patients, his friends, his family and for being able to share in the rich natural bounty of the Mississippi Delta.

Born in Ruston, Louisiana in 1939, Dr. Brooks was the son of the late Nelda Nobles and John Madison Brooks, both Louisiana natives. It was in his early years in Louisiana that Dr. Brooks developed a life-long passion for hunting that led him to settle with his wife and family in Greenville, located in the Mississippi Waterfowl Flyway. He developed broad knowledge of nature and wildlife and excelled in hunting skills, including winning the Mississippi Duck Calling Contest in 1973. He was a founding member and past president of the Black Bayou Hunting Club.

In 1948, Dr. Brooks moved to Johnson City, Tennessee along with his family when his father was hired as a coach and teacher by East Tennessee State College. There Dr. Brooks attended the ETSC Training School, where he excelled in academics and athletics, and where he met his future wife of 62 years, Emily Easterly. While a high school senior in 1957, he set a state record in the 220-Yard Dash in the East Tennessee Regional Track Meet that stood for 30 years. He was a scholarship basketball player at ETSC and at Louisiana Tech University. His medical training was completed at the University of Tennessee Medical School, where he specialized in Surgery; he later achieved one of the highest scores in the nation on his Surgery Board evaluations.

To fulfill his required service to the United States, Dr. Brooks chose to join the Public Health Service. He and the family were sent to Ft. Yates, ND to a Public Health Service Indian Hospital, serving the Hunkpapa Band of the Sioux Tribe. During his 2 1/2 years of service to the Sioux people as Chief Medical Officer of the Hospital, he was given the rare honor of being adopted into the Tribe. He was honored for his service, for his shared values with the Sioux people regarding nature and the arc of life, and for endearing himself by learning sufficient Sioux language to communicate functionally. He was given the Sioux name of “Rain in the Face”.

Dr. Brooks was well-read and had a deep knowledge of and appreciation for history, literature and poetry. He was a gifted writer and enjoyed sharing his observations on nature and human nature. His favored mode of writing was poetry, often with a humorous twist. He was frequently asked by friends, community members and family for copies of his works and urged to have them published.

A person of faith, a Christian, Dr. Brooks was a life-long Baptist and a student of the Bible, having read the Bible cover-to-the-cover at least 45 times. Dr. and Mrs. Brooks joined and raised their family in the First Baptist Church of Greenville. Especially since his retirement, he enjoyed his participation in the life of the church as a choir member, Sunday School teacher and as a Deacon. He expressed gratitude that their children are baptized Christians who are active in their churches.

Family was an important aspect of Dr. Brooks’s life. He enjoyed the study of his ancestors and the dissemination of Brooks Family genealogy. He also enjoyed the company, stories and traditions of the generations of both of his parents’ families who lived during his lifetime. He was a faithful supporter and the host of the last two Brooks Family Reunions, which until the intervention of the Pandemic, had drawn scores of attendees annually for 73 years.

Dr. Brooks is survived by his devoted wife, Emily Easterly Brooks, his sister Sally Brooks Meadows (William), children John Madison (Matt) Brooks, III (Vivian), Richard Lee Brooks, and Sally Elizabeth Brooks Maxwell (Emory) and treasured grandchildren, Caroline Kirk Brooks, John Madison Brooks, IV, Howard Emory Maxwell, Jr., Elizabeth Scott Maxwell, and Richard Logan Brooks.

Dr. Brooks desired to express special appreciation to Dr. Stephen Swisher, Chief of Surgery at MD Anderson, Dr. Maroun Hayek, Dr. Bob Corkern, Dr. Gregg Dickerson and Dr. Pradeep Thakare for their outstanding care during his illness. In addition,he was especially appreciative of the care given by Hospice nurses directed by Trudy Giesbrecth and by night nurse Virginia Fulton.

Dr. Brooks also wished to honor the exemplary service of the nursing staff surrounding him during his years of practice, Velma Payne, Willie Mae Williams, Martha Jean Wallace, Kathy Sullivan and his trusted surgical nurse, Mary Whittington Tackett.

The support of Dr. Matt Alexander and Brother Charles Fisher as well as many friends who visited, called and ministered has been greatly appreciated by all of the family.

Jean Ann Ni**od, 85, of Greenville, MS died peacefully in her sleep at her home on March 13, 2022. Jean Ann was a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

Jean Ann was born on November 29, 1936, in Hamburg, Iowa to Ted Hansen and Madeline Bergstrom Hansen, her biological Mother. Her adoptive Mother, at an early age, was Margaret Dane Hansen. Jean Ann grew up in Iowa and Scottsdale, AZ.

Jean Ann met Vance Ni**od, a waiter with “beautiful red curls,” in her dormitory’s dining hall at Iowa State University. After they graduated in 1959, Jean Ann worked for Farm Journal Magazine in Philadelphia, PA and Vance worked in Connecticut. They married in 1961 and lived in Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Indiana before moving to Greenville, MS. They had two children. Alison is a scientist at Eli Lilly in Indianapolis, IN and Peter is Chief Engineer of the Mississippi Levee Board. Jean Ann worked at the Delta Democrat Times when she first moved to Greenville before turning to art full time.

Jean Ann was a very accomplished artist for over 60 years using several media including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors and pen and ink. Her paintings were both traditional and abstract. She did both portraits and landscapes. Many of her paintings included her children and grandchildren and scenes of her home, yard, dreams and the Delta. All had a bold look with many colors and patterns. She participated in several artist group shows of paintings and had a well-received retrospective of over fifty paintings that were both new and old at the Jake and Frieda Stein Art Gallery in Greenville in 2019. She derived much joy from her family and enjoyed giving art lessons to children and participating in Bible study. Jean Ann lived a very reflective and prayerful life. She loved her studies of theology and Jungian psychoanalysis at Spring Hill in Mobile and in Zurich, Switzerland. Along her path she filled hundreds of journals with reflections and prayers. Jean Ann really appreciated the beauty of the land, architecture and the people of her adopted state of Mississippi. One of her favorite things to do was take an evening car ride with Vance around the Delta.

Jean Ann is survived by her husband, Vance; daughter Alison (Rhett) Perkins; son Peter (Allison) Ni**od; five grandchildren Dillon, Paxton, Walker, Elizabeth, and Brantley; siblings sister Patricia (Doug) Shadle of Houston, Texas, sister Barbara (Bill) Straube of Oregon and brother Jay (Barbara) Hansen of Washington State.

The funeral will be at St. James Episcopal Church at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, March 20, 2022. There will be a visitation hour at 2:00 p.m. at the church. Arrangements are under the direction of Boone Funeral Home, Greenville.

Several events seemed to come together in the last week of her life. Her daughter and son-in-law from Indianapolis came to visit; she watched her granddaughter, Brantley, win a handful of blue ribbons at her track meet; she rode to Oxford and ate lunch with grandsons, Paxton and Walker, both students at Ole Miss; her husband escorted and assisted her to the communion rail at church for both ashes and communion on Ash Wednesday; she attended a birthday party for a dear friend; she and Vance went on multiple drives; and she, with several family members, went to Peter and Allison’s Sherman’s Restaurant for dinner twice in one week.

A note from a young friend summed up Jean Ann’s life as follows: “She really danced until the music stopped, and that’s the thought that comes to mind, which I believe might be how she’d see her life too.”

Jean Ann will be missed.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial may be made in her honor to the Greenville Arts Council.
