Terry Rae Bullock Mannion

September 3, 1936 — March 19, 2024

Las Vegas, Nevada

Terry Rae Bullock Mannion, born September 3, 1936, entered this world in a hallway at Cedar City Hospital to the loving embrace of her parents, Robert Bullock and Agnes Lamb. Tragically, Robert's life was cut short during WWII, leaving Agnes to navigate life's journey with young Terry. Ultimately, Agnes decided to seek work in Montana, entrusting Terry's upbringing to Terry’s grandparents, Julia and Sherman Lamb.

Terry's spirit of resilience and determination blossomed under the guidance of her grandparents in St. George, Utah. She attended elementary school in Cedar City before immersing herself in the vibrant student life at Woodward and Dixie High School. During her high school years, Terry shone brightly, actively participating in various activities, including contributing to the school paper and gracing beauty pageants. In 1954, she proudly graduated from Dixie High School, marking the beginning of an extraordinary educational journey.

Continuing her pursuit of knowledge, Terry enrolled at the University of Utah, where she thrived both academically and socially. Immersed in campus life, she was a distinguished member of the ROTC, contributed her leadership skills to the Student Council, and presided over the Alpha Phi Sorority. Additionally, her passion for sports led her to join the Rocky Mountain Softball Team. In 1957, Terry married Jack Mannion, the love of her life (and were later solemnized in the St. George Temple). The very next year, she graduated from the “U” with a degree in political science, laying the foundation for her remarkable career ahead.

The year 1959 brought Terry the joy of motherhood with the arrival of her first son, John Mannion. That same year, she embarked on her teaching career at Jordan School District's Midvale Junior High, where she guided students in political science, English, and typing.

Even while balancing motherhood and teaching, Terry's commitment to education remained unwavering. In 1960, Terry and Jack relocated to Provo so that Jack could finish his degree. Later that year, Terry welcomed their second son, Pace Mannion, into the world.

Terry next continued her academic pursuits and family life after she and Jack moved to Las Vegas. In 1961, Terry and Jack each signed contracts to work in the Clark County School District. There, Terry taught English at Jim Bridger Junior High before transitioning to Rancho High School, where she taught English and later became a counselor. All the while, Terry returned to Provo each summer so she could work towards her master's degree in counseling and administration. In 1965, they were blessed with a third son, Greg Mannion.

Over the course of 30 years, Terry's career in education evolved, culminating in administrative roles within the district, where she spearheaded initiatives to enhance secondary education. Even in retirement, her commitment to educational advancement remained steadfast, as she lent her expertise to projects such as the High-Tech High School and collaborated with IBM to facilitate technology planning in school districts nationwide.

In 2004, the Clark County School District commemorated Terry’s (and Jack's) lifelong commitment to education and community by establishing the Jack and Terry Mannion Middle School. Named in their honor, the school stands as a testament to their enduring dedication. Since its establishment, it has consistently been one of Henderson’s top middle schools, excelling in academics, athletics, arts, and activities. This success echoes Terry's unwavering

commitment to fostering excellence in all aspects of student life, and just like her, will leave a lasting impact across generations.

Terry's legacy extends far beyond her professional achievements. She was not only a dedicated educator but also a pillar of strength and compassion in her community. Known for her strong will, organizational prowess, and exceptional leadership, Terry touched the lives of many with her unwavering love and care. Her dependability and readiness to help were evident to all who knew her, earning her the love and respect of those she worked with and supervised. Terry's boundless creativity and generosity knew no bounds, whether she was sewing clothes, crafting Christmas decorations, or lending a helping hand to family and friends. As a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, she found fulfillment in her service, church callings, mission callings, and temple attendance.

Even with all that she gave for education and the community at large, the best work she did was with family as a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and a counselor to all.

Terry leaves behind a legacy of love, resilience, and unwavering dedication. She is survived by her beloved husband, Jack Mannion, her sons Pace Mannion (Gaia) and Greg Mannion, siblings Steven Rouse, Sherm Rouse, Roz Rouse, grandchildren PJ (Sarah) Mannion, Candice (Jascha) Clark, Beau Mannion, Alexa Mannion, Jackson (Mitzy) Mannion, Nico Mannion, Mackenzie Mannion, and Austen Mannion, and great-grandchildren Brecklyn, Fisher, Brinley, Tilly, Jack, and Wells. Preceding her in death were her son, John Mannion; half-sister, Teddy Rouse; parents, Agnes Rouse and Robert Bullock; and grandparents, Sherm and Julia Lamb.

As we honor Terry's memory, let us carry forward her legacy of service, kindness, and boundless enthusiasm for life.

May she rest in eternal peace.
