Terry loved life and would drop everything if someone she knew was sick or needed help. There was never a second thought. Many of those same friends were constant visitors at her home when she could not get out due to her illness. Terry was a huge basketball fan and no matter where her brother was coaching she was an avid supporter, and would go to as many games as possible.
In January 2017 she was diagnosed with ALS and fought it every day for over 2 years. Terry never lost her humor and faced every day with new courage. Her positive attitude was contagious with everyone that cared for her and came to visit. The family sincerely appreciates everyone. All the caregivers and the friends that helped keep her spirits up. Terry was strong beyond belief, her positive, upbeat attitude was one we'll all remember.
