Many years ago, I met Terry at a La Leche League meeting, a gathering of mothers who were supportive of one another as they enjoyed the many benefits of nursing their babies. Terry helped me and other moms a lot because she was the kind of person who inspired confidence and liked helping others. We became friends and after I gained some experience, we worked together to spread the League’s philosophy of good mothering through breastfeeding and to share the joy of mothering with others. Our strong attachment to our own children naturally led us to have a very protective attitude towards all babies, both born and pre-born, so we became active in the pro-life movement, working on many projects together. As our children grew up, the needs of our families took us along other paths, but I will never forget those years when the foundation of our children’s experience of life and love unfolded in our arms. I will always remember with gratitude Terry as being right there ready to re-enforce every mother’s good instincts. Dear family of Terry, I am sorry that I am unable to attend her funeral Mass, but I will pray with the Church that choirs of holy angels come to lead Terry into paradise and the martyrs and saints welcome her home, that she may know the peace and joy of paradise and enter into everlasting rest. With sympathy and prayers, Kay Balash, godmother of Stephanie

Terry and her husband were very friendly to us during our winters in Las Cruces, NM. Terry liked to go to the monthly artist event in downtown; one Friday night we met in a gallery where my work was part of the annual exhibit by the local group, Southwest Calligraphy Guild. When she saw one of my pieces she asked if she could buy it for their Michigan cottage. I was very pleased. The calligraphy piece showed a dock on a lake and it said "The answer may not be at the beach but you should check." I will always remember her delight in purchasing my art. I am sorry she's departed this earth but know her spirit is shining on all of us from their spot on the lake.

I want to send my condolences to the family. It is hard to find the words to express my sympathy. I do have many wonderful memories of Terry. I had her daughter Julie as a student when I taught Spanish at Geneva High School. I also was a swimmer at the YMCA and Terry helped me through a very difficult time in my life. She and others would get together for breakfast after swimming. That group was such a support for me. My husband and I moved to Texas in 1989, but I still kept in touch with Terry. I always made sure to see her when I came up to Ohio. She is one of the most caring, loving people that I know. Heaven has truly gained a most beautiful angel. Love, Lynne Toth

Dearest Rob and family, There is no one else like Terri. She made my heart so full of love and laughter for so many years. A friend, a listener and a partner in mischief, never crime. I will miss her so much. Rest in peace. Jane is waiting.
