March 15, 1961 - September 12, 2021
Taresa May Funderburg, 60, of Montgomery, TX, passed away on September 12, 2021 after a sudden and quick battle with Covid pneumonia. Taresa was born on March 15, 1961 to Wayne and Viola Bryant in Hampton, Ar. After graduating from high school, she went on to study nursing. She spent many years caring for others in nursing homes, private care, and hospital settings. She became a business owner and learned about merchandising and design. However, her heart was with taking care of others and went back to her passion of being a LPN. When Taresa had Jerimy, she decided to dedicate her life to being a fantastic and wonderful mother. Taresa excelled at raising her children and supporting them through the many passions and difficulties of their lives. Whether that was supporting Amy through the loss of her husband or supporting Inga when she moved across the country, she made it her mission to improve the lives of her children. Taresa had a heart that cared for many. She was always the first family member to reach out when someone needed help or emotional support. She loved family gatherings. Her favorite holiday was Thanksgiving. She could be found in the kitchen cooking and visiting with family. Her heart was full when her home was full. Taresa was a passionate gardener and when she wasn’t filling her home with warmth and kindness, she could be found in her greenhouse or in the yard planting seedlings or getting the ground ready for the next season’s crop. She was also passionate about God. She could be found every Saturday at church. She loved her church family just as much as her own family. She will be missed greatly. Taresa was predeceased by her mother, Viola Bryant, father, Wayne Bryant, sister, Taura Moorehead, brother, David Bryant, and son, Jerimy Smith. She is survived by her brothers, Terry and Tracy Bryant, her sister, Tammy Davis, her daughters, Amy Embrey and Inga Byrd, and her grandchildren, Jewell, Corbin, and Scarlett. There will be a funeral service at Benton Funeral Home in Fordyce, AR on Monday September 20, 2021 at 10 AM. Burial will be at McCoy Cemetery. Arrangements are by Benton Funeral Home of Fordyce.
