  1. Terri was more than my aunt, she opened up her home for me when I was a senior in high school so that I could graduate with the kids I grew up with after my parents had to move for my dad’s work. She had a very spiritual effect in my life. She had so much patience about me as I wasn’t the best kid. I could get Val and me into trouble but she wouldn’t get to upset with us. I will miss this wonderful woman who had a positive influence on my life. My God bless her for the example of life she lived.

  2. A lady is never too old to giggle and share secrets with a girlfriend. Terri was that girlfriend to me. She had sparkling eyes and the sweetest smile. Loved that beautiful lady

  3. Terri was a wonderful lady. I was always thankful that when she was taking classes at S.C.S.C. , I wasn’t in class with her! She was so intelligent and hard-working that she would have raised the curve so much. The one time we all remember is when the cops came to Val’s house and she kicked me off the porch for throwing a smoke bomb in the garage across the street! We always had a good laugh about that. My wife and I loved Terri so much and appreciated her so much. May she rest in peace.

  4. Terri was truly a beautiful godly woman. She always supported us and Belmont Church of the Nazarene through prayer, encouragement, and giving. Her knowledge and understanding of the Bible was deep and she loved it share it with others. She will be greatly missed.

  5. Terry is now in heaven with her dear friend Joy Huntley who passed on October 14th. They are undoubtedly having coffee and Christmas cookies.

  6. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in the loss of your dear mother, grandmother and friend. I thought the world of Terri. I worked at Belmont with Terri and every lunch or whenever we could, we would go for a walk and just visit. I am sorry in the last few years we were not able to get together. Terri will always be in my heart!
    With my deepest sympathy, Pat

  7. Mrs. Ross, was my 4th grade teacher at South Park Elementary School, many years ago. She was a great teacher, with compassion and great dedication to her passion for teaching. She was patient and kind and genuine in all that she did. She made a very special difference in my young life. I had the privilege of running into her a few years ago and I was so happy to see her. She not only remembered my name but also the name of my 4th grade best friend. It was such a blessing to see her again and to have that happen.. I give great thanks to God for blessing me with the gift of her.
    My prayers are extended to her family and friends and all who are affected by her loss.
