Graduated from Ithaca High School in 1970. Enjoyed working for the City of Ithaca for over ten years. Terry loved spending time with family and friends. Terry had a fifty-year friendship with six classmates, dubbed the "Magnificent 7." She cherished the group, and it will live on forever. Terry's leisure time included crocheting, and creating video memorabilia for events. She also loved watching her daughter, Megan, and grandchildren dance on stage with Ithaca Academy of Dance, sons Eric and Alex with MMA, son Justin's talent with building airplane models, and repairing anything and everything.
