Terra Ann-Marie Lee-Cheatham was called to eternal glory on February 24, 2023, while surrounded by her
family. Terra affectionately known as “Terra-Boo” was born on January 1, 2007, in Akron, Ohio to Tedra Ann
Cheatham and Eric Lee. Terra is in the LeBron James “I Promise” program and attends Akron Early College
where she was a 10 th grader, but due to her illness she attended on-line classes. Although Terra was unable to
attend classes, she yet excelled in all of her studies being a honor roll student. She attended and was a
member of Greater Holy Trinity C.O.G.I.C. under the leadership of Pastor Clarence Jackson later renamed The
Light Church Akron under the leadership of Pastor Mark Jackson where she assisted on the usher board and
March 2022 was when our lives changed forever, that is when Terra was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Through every chemo treatment, radiation appointment and surgery, she never lost faith in God. She always
kept a positive attitude and kept a smile on her face even through the pain.
Terra loved Family and always enjoyed being surrounded by family especially her brothers. She was a light and
a positive role model to everyone that she ever came in contact with. Terra had so many things that she loved
to do which included cooking, playing cards, video games, playing basketball and wrestling for which she did
both while a student at Litchfield Middle School. She also enjoyed watching various shows including Law and
Order, Rookie, Baddies and Parking Wars. Terra loved cars especially the G-Wagon and she enjoyed driving as
well. She wanted a Mercedes and strived to be a public figure (She made it to that status because she is our
public figure). She loved her money and shopping.
