Terry was one of four children born to Jimmy and Reba. She graduated in 1979 from C.E. King High School in the Sheldon area.
Terry was a loving, kind, and generous wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. She enjoyed fishing, spending time at her Crystal Beach home and riding on her candy apple green golf cart along the beach.

She adored her three children, her nieces and nephews and was passionate about kids; always treating them all as her own.
Terry was a member of her neighborhood Christmas association. She was the queen of Christmas decorations and there was never too much. It was important to her to decorate her home each year to maintain her Christmas decoration dynasty. She will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her.
