My deepest condolences Veronica, Tony and the rest of the Roderick-Alderete family. I met Terry in 1989 working at that time at the Hispanic Center for Pacific Bell. A role model, mentor and friend!!! I'm blessed as so many others who benefited from having known such a wonderful person. Terry you will live forever through all of us and your memories will carry your legacy for many life times to come.
As a friend and colleague of Terry's for over 25 years, her passing will leave a deep void, but she will live on in the many wonderful memories I have of her. I cherish the time I was able to spend with her. Terry has been a part of every good thing that happened in our community. We are all so fortunate to have had her in our lives and to have shared in her intelligence, wit, integrity, brave spirit and caring heart.
Beyond sad to know that you have left us Terry but so blessed to have been able to have worked with and learned so much from you. No need for you to worry if you will be forgotten -- my friend, your influence, commitment, and dedication to the Latino community will live on forever especially for those of us who will find a way to contribute to our community -- you have provided us with the definitive road map. I will miss you Terry. My love and respect to your familia.
My sincere condolences goes to the Roderick-Alderete family. The Latino community,in Fruitvale-Oakland will feel her absence and presence as she was the guiding force for community events, especially Dia de Los Muertos, for many years. Any of us involved in events know that Teri was beyond compare, she could make it happen, anywhere, anytime. I am very thankful to had the opportunity to meet and work with a great person like Teri. We had a lot common and I'm going to miss her dearly. She was such a role modeled to me. I'll never forget you my friend, my mentor and your influence will be felt forever! RIP. Love you Teri
Terry was an exceptional soul. A leader, pioneer in the Hispanic chamber movement, a loving and devoted daughter, mother and friend. Terry always smiled, always volunteered to do the work and never complained. She will be remembered and missed by all. Rest in peace, dear Terry as you deserve nothing but glory in the heavens above. Melinda Guzman and family

Sadly we have lost a beautiful family member who I met yrs past when visiting the family in Calif. My prayers go to her Family. She was very much loved by the Roderick family and so I say rest in peace Theresa you will be missed on earth but you will not suffer no more... Love you more.. and to the children.
Terry was a good friend and it is really sad to learn of her passing. I first met Terry about 30 years ago at the HCAC and then starting working with her about 12 or 13 years ago at the Unity Council. There was no one like Terry.
There was no such thing as rank with Terry; All were equal. She only wanted to do a good job and it didn't matter who was the boss. She was the best.
You will be deeply missed by all those you touched.
Condolences to your family. I worked at the Unity Council, and remember her well. She was very kind, very sweet person.
So sorry to hear of her loss. I worked at the Unity Council, and she was so kind. I knew she was ill, and know, how hard it must be for her family. My sincerest condolences.
Angel and I will always remember Terry has a brilliant woman with many tiny light bulbs waiting to burst forward! You will be missed by so many of us!! May you rest in peace!!!!
My thoughts and prayers to your family. Terry was a wonderful friend, and customer. I will always cherish our relationship and the time we spent together. I love you My friend RIP.
We are very sorry Veronica, our thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
My condolences to the family. My prayers are with you during these difficult moments. I remember Tere Alderete well, she was one of the first people to welcome me to the Bay Area in 2000 when I arrived from Los Angeles. She was an inspiring person, enthusiastic and always giving back to the community she so loved. RIP
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
