September 11, 1942May 18, 2020

Maureen "Terry" Giese was born on September 11, 1942 to James and Dorothy Reilly. She graduated from Lourdesmount High School in 1961, then briefly joined the U.S. Navy. She always said that her first glimpse of Pensacola Bay was like coming home. She was intelligent, stubborn, loving, sarcastic and witty, with a big personality and a bigger heart. She enjoyed reading and watching Jeopardy. She is survived by her husband of 42 years, Bill; her daughters Cheryl McCormick, Michelle Riley (Rachel), and Melissa Giese; her sons Jamie Greene (Suyapa), Mike Greene, and Brian Dandelakis (Anna). She is also survived by her seven grandchildren, Joshua McCormick (Jessica), Alexis, Ariel, and James Greene, and Sarah, Rebekah, and Gracie Gibson, and her two great grandchildren, Michael and Owen McCormick. She was loved by all and loved all. She will be greatly missed. A private celebration of life for this loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother will be held at a later date.

The world is absent an amazing woman who loved her family and the "strays" they brought home. I am one of the fortunate friends that called her Mom and she was truly beautiful inside and out! There are no words that truly convey my sympathy to Terry's family; so I will say thank you. Thank you for sharing Terry with me and allowing me to be a part of her life. Thank you for the memories of a woman full of life and laughter.

There are many memories of Terry in my heart. Going to the beach, evacuating Panama City due to hurricane, cooking dinner, sitting around the dinning room table laughing and talking. It saddens me that we grew apart the last few years of her life. She was always such a joy to be around. Rest in peace, my friend.
