    So sorry for your loss. Theresa and I worked together at St Mary's until she retired. I later worked with Tana. I remember how she would talk about Josh's singing and Thomas Be coming a Priest.

    If anyone was able to give you a good laugh, it was Aunt Terry. Always had a smile on her face and something funny to talk about. She would really light up the room with laughter. I remember my dear Aunt while I was growing up I would always ask if Aunt Terry "was going to be there"! She sure made the best desserts and she was quick to remind dad that he was not too old for her to whoop! Such the life of all the family gatherings! She was a hard working mother and faithful wife. To Uncle Randy, Tana, Josh, and Thomas, I will be praying for you all. Though I have lived away for many years now, I will always love my family and have a special place in my heart for my Aunt Terry. My love and prayers, Andrea

    We called her "Terry". She is my first cousin. My prayers are with the family and those who love Terry.

    I am so sorry for your loss, Randy and family. Terry was a wonderful person and a good momma. My condolences to Candy, Jerry, Joan, and Tim, too. You all are in my prayers. I have nothing but fond memories of Terry when we played together as children. I recall how much she loved to pick wildflowers. Although we were only 6 months apart, she felt more like a big sister to me and I looked up to her. I pray the peace of God comforts your hearts at this very difficult time as you comfort one another. She will be missed.
