  1. My deepest sympathies for your loss, I worked with Terry for a number of years at Daniel Freeman, she was a kind and caring nurse and a wonderful person. She always spoke lovingly of her family. I have a sweater vest that she was knitting, it accidently came out too large for the family member she was making it for and she gave it to me, I will always remember her fondly when I wear it. Sincerely, Becky Straser

  2. Terry\’s bubbling personality, her enthusiasm for life, and joyful smile will always remain with me. Sincere condolences to her family who were her life.

  3. Terry was a great nurse and fun to work with and we shared lots of our experiences. We were the “old time ” nurses that took pride in our work and our pts. sadly now ther is one less of these great nurses.I know she suffered and will be in a more confortable place now. Even when I called her she had a brave attitude. I am glad that I knew Terry and and sad at her passing…..sincerely Phyllis Vranesh sss at DFH.
