Teryl Lynn Macia passed away peacefully among family and friends on May 20, 2014. She fought a courageous battle against breast cancer and remained energetic and positive throughout.|
Teryl was born November 12, 1960, in San Diego, CA, to Janet and Clyde McEfee. She graduated from Kearny High School and the University of Southern California. She was a leader in many organizations including her service as President of the Beta Alpha chapter of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority.
Upon graduation, Teryl embarked on a career in business, distinguishing herself as an entrepreneur and risk taker who founded a successful national maintenance services and media company. Her business took her to San Francisco where she developed a love for walking the hills and neighborhoods that would remain throughout her life and travels. For Teryl, friendships were forged and challenges confronted while walking.
Teryl's interest in business was rivaled only by her love of family, to whom she devoted her time and consummate love. Teryl met and married Alejandro Macia in San Francisco where their daughters, Alexandra and Isabella, were born. The Macia Family settled in Rancho Santa Fe, CA, where Teryl was active in the community. She loved mornings, music, a cup of tea, and a good laugh, and she shared them all with many close friends, to whom the Macia family are most grateful. Her greatest joy came from being a mother to her beautiful girls. With her unwavering positive attitude, Teryl radiated a spirit that will endure with those fortunate to have known her.
In addition to her beloved Alejandro, Alexandra and Isabella, Teryl is survived by her father, Clyde McEfee, and her brothers, Blake and Camden.
A Funeral Mass will be held Tuesday, May 27, 2014, at 2:00 pm at Church of The Nativity, Rancho Santa Fe, CA.
In lieu of flowers, the family has designated The Laughing Pony Rescue and the Church of The Nativity, Rancho Santa Fe, CA, for memorial contributions.
