I was lucky enough to be a part of Teri's extended family. Her son, Jim, is my brother-in-law. She treated me like family and I always appreciated that. Her love for life was without limits. Family was the most important thing to her and she showed it always. I am sure she is dancing an Irish jig in heaven; shining as one of the brightest angels, being loved by all. RIPE Teri, although with your endless energy I am not sure "Peace" would be accurate.

Grandma Terri was grandma to all the kids on Gourley Lane and she treated them all as her own. Her home was always a welcome respite for the kids and their “shenanigans” through the years. Our family cherishes the warmth and joy for life she exemplified for many.
God bless her as she dances now with Bob in Heaven.
