September 13, 1959 - January 7, 2021
Terry Lynn Manning (Waugh), 61 of Higginsville, Missouri died on Thursday, January 7, 2021, at her home. She was born Sunday, September 13, 1959 in Chicago, Illinois, and was the daughter of the late John Waugh and Ellen (Bentley) Bryant. Terry grew up in a military family and moved around, but settled in Blue Springs, MO and attended Blue Springs High School. She was passionate about her pets and loved dogs. She spent some time living in the Ozarks and worked as a secretary, doing clerical work for a mechanical shop. The Ozarks gave her the opportunity to fish and boat often. She enjoyed the lake water and jet skiing. Working for a mechanical shop brought about the love of dirt track racing. Racing was her life. The family was at the track every weekend. She was a score keeper and helped with all racing aspects from changing tires to helping strap her kids in the race car when it was their turn to race. She supported every family member's racing dreams and was always there cheering and screaming for them. She even raced in the Powder Puff races, which is when all the wives and significant-others race each other in their husband's race cars. Terry loved spending time with family whether on the dirt track or at home; family was everything to Terry. She will be missed by her family, friends and her race community. Surviving are two sons, Ryan (Tiffanie) O'Malley of Sedalia, MO and Patrick O'Malley of Higginsville; three daughters, Kelly (Mike) Kelly of Higginsville, Stacey Manning of Higginsville, and Christy Manning of Higginsville; her mother, Ellen Bryant of Sedalia; one sister, Missy Duke of Grayson, KY; fifteen grandchildren, Tyler, Zoe and Dru, Savanah, Harley, Landon, P.D., Trevor, Adelian, Brynlee, Sierra, Tyee, Slade, Lilyanna, Gabriela, Ariabella; two great-grand-children, Alexander, Rucker and 2 great-grand-children on the way. She was preceded in death by her father, John Waugh; and two grandchildren, Lynda and Jordan. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 PM on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Hoefer Funeral Home located at 1600 Main St. Higginsville, Missouri 64037. Memorial contributions may be made out to the family to help with expenses.
