Terry Hite

November 23, 1945 — October 29, 2023

Mount Pleasant

MOUNT PLEASANT - Terry L. Hite, age 77, of Mount Pleasant, Iowa, lost her struggle with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) on Sunday, October 29th, 2023. She was with her husband at home as she met the Lord. From Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

Terry will be dearly missed by her husband, Larry; her daughters, Cathy (Kevin) Glaha and Michele (John Hartman) Hendricks; their daughter Amy (David) Barney; her grandchildren Maxwell, Allison, Taylor, Chi-anna, Patience, Jaxon, Justice, True, Trust and Courage; her siblings Michael Fisher, Edie (Brian) Coughlin, Steven (Joan) Fisher, Mary (Dan) Butcher, and Donald (Dale) Fisher. She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Olive; and father-in-law and mother-in-law, Gerald and Loretta Hite; and sisters-in-law Carol Fisher and Marilyn Hite.

Terry always kept an immaculate home, all the while providing in-home daycare to almost a hundred children during her years as a childcare professional. She also worked several years at Metromail in Mt. Pleasant. Terry loved Thursday night league bowling with the ladies. She was a dog lover who spoiled her beagle MJ, named after Michael Jordan, and a Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier, Marley, who kept her company over the last 13 years. She also loved to travel to visit family. She spent lots of time in Washington, Massachusetts, Texas, Nebraska, Alaska, Hawaii, Illinois, Florida, Virginia, West Virginia, Maine, North Carolina, and Alabama. Summer was always her favorite time of year.  Terry loved reading books and magazines, [souvenir] shopping, doing puzzles, watching grandchildren play sports, going to the beach or pool, and exploring vineyards in Virginia. Before FTD, she had an excellent memory, and always sent anniversary and birthday cards to all grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She was very loved and will be greatly missed.

Graveside services and interment at Forest Home Cemetery in Mount Pleasant, Iowa for family and friends will be Friday, November 3rd, 2023, at 1pm. With Pastor Steve English officiating. A Celebration of Life for Terry will follow the graveside services at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall of Mount Pleasant, Iowa. Memorials gifted to First Baptist Church.


Terry’s family wishes to thank her caregivers, Dianne Chrisinger, and Every Step Hospice to include Kathleen Welcher Fry and Christina Gersema for their compassionate care.

We are comforted knowing that Terry Hite is at peace.

The Olson-Powell Chapel and Crematory is caring for Terry and her family.
