I was informed of Terry's passing by a Facebook post. My husband and I was a 1968 graduate from Red Oak High School. I remember Terry as such a beautiful person with a BIG smile on her face and always welcoming personality. You were considered lucky to be her friend. So sorry to hear of her passing. Mike and I are sending hugs and prayers to Terry's family. Rest in peace my friend!

Terry was a neighbor for many years. We would play 'Statue ' and 'Kick the Can' way into the night (8 pm) in her yard. Thought of her as a kind quiet girl. Was always fun.

I’m so sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. I was her Avon District Manager and got to know her through our monthly meetings. Terry was a joy to be around:). Indeed she did like red! She was well liked by her peers and customers. We appreciate her dedicated Avon service for 30 years. She will be missed. Debbie Killin
