Terri Dome Obituary
Terri Kaye
Kitchens Dome
Passed from this world into the hands of God on July 1, 2014. She was born April 12, 1962 in San Antonio, Texas to John W. Kitchens and Sandra Kitchens Dush. She and her husband, Steve Dome, lived in Houston, Texas.
Terri was a childhood cancer survivor and a five-year heart transplant survivor. She lost her final battle to complications of pneumonia in San Antonio Texas, surrounded by her loving family and friends.
Terri loved life and lived it to the fullest. She grew up around horses and horse racing and won many trophies as a barrel racer on the youth rodeo circuit. She rode trail bikes and loved to water ski. She was a cheerleader at East Central High School from where she graduated in 1980.
Terri's zany wit and wonderful sense of humor endeared her to everyone she met. She called each of her special friends "Rabbit" and they called her TK or Lil' T. Her generosity was without restraint; she patted every stray dog and gave to every needy stranger. She had an innate sense of style, an endless capacity to create laughter, and strong compassion for all.
She married her brother's best friend, Steve, in 1987. When Steve's career took him to London, where they lived for several years, Terri worked in the computer gaming industry at Virgin Interactive, and attended school. She moved to Sausalito and was the International Sales Director at LucasArts, marketing Star Wars games and other releases. She traveled the world, but found nowhere as wonderful as Paris and said that someday she would live there. She made lifelong friends throughout her travels.
In 2009 she received a heart transplant at Texas Heart Institute and with her new heart she regained her energy and passion for living every moment. Her life post-transplant brought her too many new friends, and her amazing strength was a marvel to them and her doctors.
She is survived by her loving husband Steve Dome of Houston, Texas; mother Sandra Kitchens Dush and stepfather Richard Dush of San Antonio; father John W. Kitchens of Lamar, Texas; brother Wayne Kitchens and wife Diane of Cypress, Texas; nephew Daniel Kitchens and wife Michelle of Leander, Texas; niece Rachel Kitchens of Cypress, Texas; and numerous and caring aunts, uncles, and cousins. Terri is predeceased by grandparents Olia Mae Kitchens and Therman and Margaret Meeks.
On behalf of Terri, the family wishes to extend an extraordinary gratitude to the doctors, especially Dr., and special friend, Roberta Bogaev, Dr. O.H. "Bud" Frazier, surgeon Igor Gregoric, the nurses, and the amazing transplant coordinators at Texas Heart Institute in Houston. Our heartfelt thanks to her San Antonio doctors, Dr. Roberta Bogaev and Dr. Nora Walker, along with all the CICU nurses at Methodist Hospital for their expertise and compassionate care.
Terri was also blessed by her relationship with her "other family" Roland and Norean Cantu, Vicki Cantu Sims, Rikki Cantu, and Nikki Cantu Barefoot.
Memorial services will be held in San Antonio and Houston, Texas.
The service in San Antonio will take place on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 11a.m.; visitation at 10:15a.m. at Mission Park Funeral Chapels North. Reception to follow at The Club at Sonterra, 901 Sonterra Blvd.
A celebration of her life will be held in Houston on Friday, July 11, 2014 from 5-8pm at La Colombe d'Or, 3410 Montrose Blvd.
