Terri was the true definition of selfless service. She dedicated her life to serving others and always put everyone before herself. Terri is a veteran of the United States Army and worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant for many years. She was very active and enjoyed decorating, gardening, fishing, or taking in the sunset with a cold drink in her hand. Sundays in the winter months were occupied by her longtime love, the Kansas City Chiefs. Terri raised two upstanding, selfless sons who are truly a reflection of her and her shared values. She was happiest when spending time with her sons, and especially her grandson, “Monkey” who was her true pride and joy. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.
A special thank you to the nurses who brought comfort and peace to Terri and our family in her final moments.
