Terri was a loving wife, mother, grandmother (affectionately known as ‘Grammie’), great grandmother, step-mother, mother-in-law, friend, teacher and x-ray technician who always put other people’s happiness and well being before her own, simply the most generous, kind, loving lady anyone could possibly know.
We would like to thank all the staff at St Joseph’s ICU who cared for Terri in the last week, even in a short time it was obvious Terri’s loving spirit touched you all.
