Tena Marie Chancey, 49, of Grove Hill, passed away February 13, 2023. She was born August 17, 1973, to parents Jack and Sarah Hudson Chancey. Tena's children and her granddaughter were her world, she loved them more than anything. She was employed at Walgreens in Jackson. She never met a stranger, if she did shortly after they felt like a friend or family. She always greeted everyone with a smile and a kind word. Not to say she wasn't opinionated, she was. Tena never held back on letting anyone know what she thought. If she liked or loved you she would do anything she could to help you. She loved riding on 4 wheelers and rangers. The mud didn't bother her at all. She loved volunteering with the Hellwestern Fire Department and the excitement of going on all the calls. She loved her brother and she was her sister's best friend, they had many good times together. She also became like a second mother, aunt, sister, and friend to so many, Tena loved each and every one of the young people that frequently visited her home. She will be truly missed by her family and loving friends.
