Obituary- Jerry Wayne Teague (1947-2019)


Jerry Wayne Teague of Black Oak was born October 10, 1947 in Dyess, AR., to Max and Jewel Teague. On December 29, 2019 in a Memphis hospital, he departed to his heavenly home.

Jerry, a proud serviceman and Vietnam veteran, enjoyed hunting, fishing and going to the drag races. He also enjoyed visiting with his friends and family. He always had a story to tell! He was also a quiet thinker, often times sitting in his recliner rubbing his mustache with his index finger. No doubt, wise advice and a life lesson was sure to follow!

He was a devoted husband and father, providing for his family and knowing the value of hard work. He spent a lifetime working on the farm and enjoyed being outdoors, raising tomatoes, taking care of his yard and picking up pecans. He was charitable, and done good deeds for others quietly and selflessly. Jerry also enjoyed his fur and feather babies, Taz whom he lost recently, Jax and Boo.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, Gary, Dennis and Rickey, and one sister, Linda.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Mildred McKinness-Teague of the home, and son Jason Teague and his wife Tammy of Mansfield, AR. He is also survived by a daughter, Holly Rhinehart and her husband Donald of Tyronza, and grandchildren, Emily, Riley, Nathaniel and Isaac.

Jerry also leaves behind a host of family and friends who will forever cherish his memory.

Visitation will be at 1 p.m. on Thursday, January 2, at Delancey-Murphy Funeral Home in Marked Tree, AR. Funeral services will begin at 2 p.m. Interment will follow at Potter Cemetery in Lepanto, AR. Pallbearers are W.G. Willoughby, Joey McCorkle, Elmo McKinness and Lee Jones. Honorary pallbearers are Sam Wynn and George Willoughby.

To Jerry Wayne, this is not goodbye, but see you again. Until then, keep sharing the laughs and cherish the memories.
