She was raised in Norfolk, Massachusetts and attended Saint Colettas School in Hanover and King Philip in Wrentham before graduating from Keefe Technical High School in Framingham. While continuing to live in Norfolk and as a lifelong member of the ARC of South Norfolk, Terry worked for many years as an assembler at Lifeworks in Westwood. In 2005, she settled into her new home on Creek Street in Wrentham, where she developed deep connections within her new community, forming a second family. Terry began attending Alternatives Unlimited in Wrentham in 2013, further extending her second family. Terry had a love for music, singing whenever she could and finding peace each night as she fell asleep to the sounds of her Walkman playing softly. As an avid bowler, she joined the Millis Bowling League and in 2009 earned the Womens Bowler of the Year Award, which she was most proud of. Terry also enjoyed both swimming and shopping. Terry loved spending time with her family, she enjoyed large gatherings with everyone, especially pizza parties and playing Uno and Bingo, but was also excited about a special moment with her Dad at Dairy Queen. Aside from her family, Terrys second love was Mickey Mouse. She traveled to Disney World and Disney Land multiple times, enjoying every minute of it. Devoted daughter of the late Paul M. and Mary M. (Lynch) Connors.
