Friends and family of 80 year old Reba Temple say she died of the fungal meningitis Saturday.
Officially the State is not listing Temple as an outbreak fatality just yet but that could change.
Friends like Shane Willis say the Hickman County woman was an avid churchgoer at the Centerville Church of Christ who was born and raised in the area.
"She grew up in Hickman County. She took a lot of pride in saying I'm from Hickman County."
Friends affectionately called Temple Ms. Reba.
They say even at 80 years old she was in good health.
That changed after she got the steroid injection to deal with back pain.
"It was a shock to everybody that number one she was in the hospital and number two the passing of her life," said Willis.
Reba Temple was buried Monday morning.
She leaves behind a son and a granddaughter.

AARP honors Johnson City health system
June 18, 2013 08:14 GMT
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Mountain State Health Alliance in Johnson City has been recognized by AARP as one of the 50 best employers in the nation for workers over 50.
In 2011, the health system created a committee made up of a number of members over the age of 50 and asked them for suggestions to make Mountain State an attractive employer for mature workers.
The company made several changes based on the panel's recommendations, including the addition of a retiree relationship manager to advise team members on retirement plans, benefit questions and other issues.
The company also created a job sharing program for team members who are nearing retirement. It allows workers to ease into retirement by reducing their hours without losing benefits.
Mountain State is the only company in Tennessee to receive the AARP honor this year.
