Tera Claxton Obituary

Mrs. Tera Hooks Claxton, 48, of Kite, passed away, Saturday, February 10, 2024, at Doctors Hospital in Augusta.

Tera was born August 18, 1975, in Swainsboro to Alton and Glynda Hooks. She was preceded in death by her mother, Glynda Hooks.  She graduated from Johnson County high school and Southeastern Technical College as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Tera loved spending time with her family and friends.  She was an avid fan of the Johnson County Trojans and Georgia Bulldogs.  She religiously watched daytime talk shows and enjoyed heated blankets and warm socks.  Tera's favorite food sharing partner was her couch buddy Bob (her pet dog).  She enjoyed karaoke singing classic country songs even though she was tone deaf.  Tera cared for and looked after everyone more than she did herself.  She will truly be missed by her family and friends.  

Tera is survived by her father, Alton Hooks; husband, Clifford Claxton, III; son, Wade (Cheyenne) Claxton; daughter, Jada Claxton; brother, Rock (Cassie) Hooks all of Kite; several nieces, nephews, and many friends.   

Funeral Services will be held at 2:00 P.M., Tuesday, February 13, 2024, in the Chapel of Chapman Funeral Home with Rev. Lamar Kersey officiating.

Interment will follow in Kersey Cemetery.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M., Monday, February 12, 2024, at Chapman Funeral Home.
