Terry was our neighbour since we moved to the neighbourhood in 1998. She was a good friend of my aunt Maria Battisti and her daughter Laurie taught my daughter Danica at St. Patrick's High School. Beautiful, warm and friendly family. Terry always made time to chat when she walked her dog. At one time, she suggested I work at McEvoy. Terry would often ask me about my aunt Maria who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's only to learn later, Terry was also dealing with memory loss. Such a lovely lady who was always willing to help. We will miss your lovely smile and kind heart. Rest in Peace and thank you for being such a warm and kind neighbour.

Dear Fred, Jennifer, Laurie, Jamie, Michelle, Alex, Fred Jr., and Dan

We are thinking of all of you at this time of great loss. Terry's infectious laughter and gentle strength were gifts she shared with everyone.

Fred, you filled her life with joy and happiness. She was so proud of all of you, and she loved being a grandmother. Being friends with Terry for more than forty-five years was such a privilege. We laughed so much and had such a great time being involved with the Christopher Leadership Course together for so many years. Treasured memories of Terry will keep her close in all our hearts forever.

Dear Fred and family. Terry was our very dear friend. We shared many fun times together dancing, sharing stories and attending theatre and other events plus 30 years of New Years parties. She was a very thoughtful, kind and loving person. We have many fond memories to fill the void left in our hearts, which we will always treasure.
