Elizabeth Terry Obituary
April 20, 1938 - July 23, 2014

Elizabeth Terry, 76, of Vacaville passed away on July 23. Liz was born in Mizpah, New Jersey on April 20, 1938 to Edna and Edward Walker. During her youth she would spend her summer school breaks in Savannah, GA with her aunt Daisy, living the life of a true farm girl. She loved her visits and her time spent there is what most likely fostered a lifetime of love and appreciation for gardening. She equally loved growing up in Atlantic City and spent many a day with friends at the Boardwalk and Chicken Bone Beach. She attended Atlantic City High School and Solano Junior College. Liz met and fell in love with Jackson D. Terry, Jr., and in 1962 they were married. Together they had three children, Stacey, Bryan, and Jennifer. She was a military wife and with Terry moved from New York to Massachusetts and eventually settled in Calif. She worked as an Administrative Assistant at the Delta Breeze Club at Travis Air Force Base for over 32 years and after retirement most enjoyed spending her time with family and friends, gardening, doing craft projects, and making prank phone calls to family members. She was a joyful and radiant wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She nurtured everyone she knew and could always be counted on to lend a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on. Liz is survived by her husband "Terry"; daughters, Stacey (Herman) Robertson and Jennifer Terry; son, Bryan (Nikki) Terry, nine grandchildren, Andrew Robertson, Kristopher "CJ" Robertson, Eisha Felomino, Amaunnie Felomino, Bryan Terry, Jr., Bryant Fancher Terry, Alize Terry, Aja Terry, and Amaya Baker; as well as several cherished nieces, nephews, and close friends. She has been reunited in heaven with her mother, Edna; father, Edward; brothers, Joseph and Edward "Junior", and sister, Mary. Memorial services will be held at McCune Garden Chapel, 212 Main St., Vacaville on Wednesday, July 30 at 2 p.m.
