Table footers. Are they TH?

I'm making some tables for our CMS admin screens. Some of the tables get
a bit long, and some require an 'action' at the bottom of a column (like
UPDATE ALL CHECKED ITEMS).

As such, I thought it'd be a good idea to repeate the TH row at the
bottom:

Name Address Status [Delete]
----------------------------------
Bob 1st Ave Active []
Sam Elm St. Inactive []
Etc
Etc
Etc
----------------------------------
Name Address Status [Delete]

It's not a NEEDED feature, but thought it wouldn't hurt. In terms of
accessibility, though, am I adding confusion to the table layout? If
not, what's the best way to treat the bottom footer? Wrap the row in
tfoot and then make each cell a TH?
