Joan Eliza Call Terry
June 17, 1918 - March 27, 2014
Joan Eliza Call Terry was born June 17, 1918 in Brigham City, Utah, the daughter of Benjamin Carlos Call and Hannah Louise Bywater Call. The sixth of eight children, she grew up in Brigham City, Utah, and graduated from Box Elder High School. She attended Brigham Young University, graduating with a degree in education. She subsequently taught elementary school in Willard, Utah, and at the Utah School for the Deaf and Blind in Ogden, Utah. In June of 1942 she married Evan Ray Terry in the Salt Lake City Temple. Ever devoted to her family, she happily laid aside her career so she could dedicate herself to raising and supporting her four children.
She served as president of her ward relief society and primary organizations, and in stake auxiliary organizations. She faithfully supported her husband Evan over many years in work related responsibilities and in callings as bishop and in the stake presidency. She loved the temple and joyfully served as a temple worker for over ten years in the Salt Lake City Temple.
She was active in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, was an avid reader, and pursued hobbies that included restoration of furniture and woodwork in her Salt Lake City Avenues home. Despite severe physical challenges, she was physically active and enjoyed long walks and mowing lawns into her nineties.
Joan was preceded in death by her husband Evan, her parents, and six siblings. She is survived by her older brother Benjamin, her children Linda Flanders, Evan Jr. (Beverly), Paul (Gloria), Richard (Karen), 15 grandchildren, and 19 great grandchildren.
