COLUMBIA “To love another person is to see the face of God.” When Teresa “Terry” Triplett and Glen Chauncey met 23 years ago, they recognized that amazing beauty of eternal love in one another’s faces and hearts. They’ve experienced a magical love that has only continued to expand and grow, and when they renewed their wedding vows just last week during Terry’s hospitalization, it was with even more passion and commitment, tenderness, friendship and love than when they were married 20 years ago on May 5, 2001. They had plans, they had hope, and they most certainly had love. Love was something that Terry abundantly gave, generously shared, and enthusiastically embraced. Her love for Glen was a constant in her life, but so was her love for their beloved fur-babies Moe & Curly, her family, her family of friends at home and in the workplace, her job, her life, and her God. On Saturday, July 10, 2021, Terry suddenly left this life to be with her Savior, leaving behind all those who can’t fathom what life will be like without her. Even her surgeon at Johns Hopkins took time away from his family vacation to share with Glen that he found Terry to be a woman of extraordinary grace, courage, kindness, and dogged determination in the face of physical adversity. That gentle grace, compassion and humor permeated every facet of Terry’s interactions with everyone she encountered. Terry was born in Radford, VA, to Oren Elmer and Xymena Bowman Triplett on October 8, 1961, and has lived in Irmo, S.C., since 1998, where she’d moved from High Point, N.C. She will always be missed and loved by her sister, Melanie Beed (Larry), and brothers, Joe Triplett (Tracy) and Lew Triplett (Stephanie), and her special nieces and nephews, Amber, Jhenna, Terin (Melanie), Andrew, Tucker, Tristan (Joe), Wesley and Lauren (Lew). She is also loved and survived by Glen’s siblings: Robert (Michelle) Chauncey, Ken (Dee) Chauncey, Bobbie (Joe) Chaplinski and Lynn Christ, as well as their children and grandchildren, David/Lauren Chauncey with daughter Grace, Matthew Chauncey, Elisabeth Chauncey (Rob); Tommy/Dianne Casolaro with children Lilly, Caleb, Erin and Isabella and Michele/Matt Jones with sons Finn and Cam (Bobbie); Cheri/Chip Hall with sons Josiah and Ezra, Lauren/John Miller with children Ellie and Paxson, and Ryann Christ (Lynn). The list of special people in Terry’s life is boundless, making it impossible to enumerate everyone who was especially dear to her but her friendship with Jennie Davis spans several decades, distance, and mutual dedication. In truth, to know Terry was to be her friend – and to be her friend was to laugh with her. Glen would like to thank all of her dear, devoted friends who’ve given them strength and laughter during these most difficult days. Terry’s spirit was a part of each one of you -- and always will be. During the seven years that Terry had worked for Duck Creek Technologies, where she was honored by receiving the FY17 Special Impact Award Winner of the Year, she found wonderful friendships, challenging opportunities, and she found her niche as a global event director -- a job she loved and people with whom she loved to work. It makes sense that Terry would be zealously committed to being an organ donor upon her death since she had, in fact, donated one of her kidneys to her father, Oren, when his life hung in the balance. Her sister and brothers have also been organ recipients, increasing her desire all the more. Terry loved her garden, her books, traveling, decorating and relaxing at home, but her favorite place to be was at the beach where she and Glen often basked in the sun and surf on their extended 20-year honeymoon. The family invites you to a celebration of Terry’s life, which will be held at Dunbar Funeral Home, Dutch Fork Chapel, 7600 Woodrow Street, Irmo, SC, on Thursday, July 15, at 10 a.m., followed by a memorial service at noon at the Dutch Fork Chapel. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a contribution to your favorite charity in Terry’s memory, or to the American Brain Tumor Association, 800-886-ABTA (2282).

¿TIENE UN RECUERDO O UNA CONDOLENCIA QUE AÑADIR?

Many heartfelt thoughts and prayers to all that will miss Terry. I was fortunate to manage the Duck Creek account for a couple of years and looked forward to my chats about events as well as the ocean. Terry was a light most certainly and even in difficult conversations, she was kind. She will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to all.

Glen. I extend my deepest sympathy to you, your family and Terry's family. I have had the pleasure of being their next door neighbor for the past 6 years and I can attest to everything that has been said about her. She was a very loving and caring person. Always available and willing to be there if I needed her. I Remember calling her one day and asking her if I could borrow her husband. After she really laughed she told me she was out of state and immediately said "Sure, what's up." I told her I had sold my kitchen cabinets and because I live alone I didn't feel comfortable having people I didn't know come to my house. She laughed again and ask me what time I needed him. That is just how she was. Always being there when she was needed. I will truly miss our conversations over the rail. Rest at the feet of Jesus my friend.

I know Terry through the Duck Creek/Hyland partnership. From day one, Terry was a kind and patient teacher, mentor and partner to me. The last time I saw Terry in person was sitting near the pool at Wet Republic in Las Vegas for an event. We parted with a hug, because she always was quick to give a warm and welcome greeting and goodbye when we were together. Sending prayers for peace and comfort to Terry's dear husband, family and friends. I will keep her memory in my heart.

I have only known Terry for 5 years, I produce an event that Terry and her colleagues attended. We bonded together quickly and easily, as if I had known her for years. She was the most cheerful, wonderful person, and her syrupy sweet voice was so comforting.

I texted with her just last week and she was so upbeat and encouraged about her progress.

My heart goes out to Glen and the family. She will be missed by many because she touched so many. God bless her and the family.

We can all learn from the way Terry lived. She was kind, gentle, thoughtful, and utterly devoted to Glen and the rest of her family. She had an unshakable moral compass, was highly driven, and could be as stubborn as a (very polite) mule when she had to be. Along with so many others, I will miss her deeply.

Terry was a bright spot in any day. I remember first working with her about 10 years ago when we were both with another company. She had a calm and quiet confidence about the work she was producing and had the ability to pass that along to those of us around her.

She always rolled with the punches and kept a smile on her face and in her voice. After moving on to different companies we occasionally bumped into each other in Irmo, catching up and seeing she still had that same genuine spirit. I will miss those bright spots she brought .

I am writing with a heavy heart. I have only known Terry for a short while as I worked with her on a virtual vformation event, as the project manager. In a short time, I was always in awe of her soft-spoken voice and polite demeanor. Even when she was stressed out for the event, she always remained so calm and composed that I took a note to learn and implement in my daily life as well. My deepest condolences that such a beautiful soul had to depart so soon.

Hi everyone.

I had the honor to meet Terry a few months ago. She was an exceptional human being. Although our relationship was mainly work-related and through zoom, I could sense much love, sweetness, and clean soul on her side.

From the vFairs team, we would like to share our condolences to all her family members and close friends.

May her soul rest in peace.

Terry would always start a call with me with comment like- "you are going to hate me for asking this". But it couldn't have been more opposite than that. I don't think I smiled or laughed with anyone more than with her. She was a special colleague and I'm lucky to have been friend of hers.
My deepest condolences go to her family and all the others who she blessed with her friendship.
