Tera Leigh McAllister(2002 - 2013)

Tera Leigh McAllister, 10, died surrounded by her family and under the loving care of Hospice of Citrus County on Feb. 9, 2013, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Tera was born Oct. 8, 2002, in West Palm Beach to Timothy Paul and Kelly Leigh (Howard) McAllister. She was a little, spunky red-headed fighter who loved Elmo and wearing her flashing shoes. She was a joy to all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Left to cherish her memory are her parents, Timothy and Kelly McAllister; and her three siblings, Timmy Jr., Tommy and Tori; grandparents Ralph and Audrene McAllister and Richard and Joyce Howard; as well as extended family members who will always hold her beautiful memory in their hearts.
A funeral tribute for Tera will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013, at the Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home. Burial will follow at the Burke Cemetery in Holder. The family will receive friends in visitation from 1 p.m. until the hour of service. Memorial donations in Tera's memory are requested to Hospice of Citrus County, P.O. Box 641270, Beverly Hills, FL 34464 in lieu of flowers to allow the wonderful Hospice staff to continue their care of others as they have done for our Tera.
