Terri Michelle Miles, age 58, of Gulfport,  MS passed away peacefully in the early morning of Sunday, June 26, 2022.

Terri was born on January 26, 1964 in Pascagoula, MS.  She grew up in Biloxi, MS and attended Biloxi Schools where she was active in the Biloxi High School Band as a drum major and flute player.  She played softball and basketball and was an active member of Junior Miss and Jeeping the Coast since its inception. 

She attended Phillips College on a basketball scholarship.  She later traded glove and ball in for the water.  Terri absolutely loved the water and the time she spent on the river and islands with her family and friends.  She enjoyed the outdoors and working outside.  Terri worked as a postal carrier for the US Postal Service where she loved interacting with the people on her route.  If they needed something, she would make sure they got it.  Terri had a big heart and was always doing for others, doing what she could for anyone in need.  She was fiercely loyal and protective of family and friends.  She loved life and lived it to the fullest.  She also had a huge love for animals and especially Daisy and Presley.

She is preceded in death by her father Kenny Miles.
