Terri, ever thought we only talked lately on the phone, it was super great seeing you again a few years ago when I came down to see your father and my niece . I only have childhood memories of you. But happy ones.
I'm very proud of what you have done with your life. And how you have taken care of your dad since your mother has passed . Together with many loved ones, we shall meet again.
Much loved and respected by so many friends and family.
Your aunt Lori❤

Hi Terri remember the day we decided too help ourselves to a cold drink from the coke a cola truck ran to Butler Park only to find no bottle opener so I had the brilliant idea for you to swing the bottle against the water fountain where it broke and a large piece of glass hit the top of my nose bleeding badly as we ran home for help. Guess we excited mom so much that she went into labor and little sister Donna was born! We really knew how to push mom's buttons huh!!! Terri I will miss you so much and am ever so sorry that we weren't close the past 18 years those years will never be replaced here in this life but we will in the next life that I can promise you are at peace in God's care now my beautiful sister Terri💕💓🙏

Terry had the kindest heart of anyone I have ever known. Her smile brightened a room. I have many fond memories of her in school.

Having had the pleasure of meeting Terri and being involved within the family for many years, I think all would agree, Terri lived her life on Terri’s terms. She loved her cats and they were her world. She was a private person, devoted to work, family and friends and enjoyed gardening at her home. She will be missed and cherished for years to come. She will be missed and thought of for eternity. God bless the family in this time of loss. 🙏🏻

I miss you! I thought we had 20 more years together. We were going to work together on dad's house. We were going to sit in our wheelchairs together when we were too old to walk.I'm happy we had the opportunity to share one of your dreams from your bucket list. Wish we could have shared more. You were so thoughtful and giving, always thinking of others. I hope you find peace my sister. I love you

I only knew Terri for a few years, but the time I did spend with her left me with memories of kindness and her wonderful sense of humor. She always had a smile on her face and was very welcoming and warm the first time I met her. I know she'll be remembered for how well she treated those she cared about and how much her loss is felt.
