Terri also left behind numerous other relatives, friends and colleagues. She was liked and loved by many. She had such an infectious smile.
Terri was born in Ashland, KY, on February 16, 1961 where her father and mother were residents of Olive Hill, KY. Her father was in the US Army and shortly after birth, Terri and her mother went to join her father in Germany where he was stationed. Later they established residence in Dayton, OH where she attended all school levels and graduated from Wayne High School in Huber Heights, OH in 1979. She attended Wright State University and Sinclair Community College in Dayton, OH and completed her education years later at High Point University, High Point, NC in 1998 with a Bachelor Degree in Business.
She and her husband met in Dayton, OH, and it was love at first sight and they were married on March 29, 1985 in Fairborn, OH. They have been happily married for more than 33 years. They were soul mates and never could be separated. They were each other's rock and did everything together. They were each other's love of their life.
She and her husband loved to travel, especially cruises. They got to do a lot of things together in their travel adventures during the time they had together. They both loved the beach so much they purchased a condo in North Myrtle Beach, SC and went there as much as they could until her illness. She always loved the water and the sand and the smell of the ocean air.
She was employed at Entrematic (Amarr Garage Doors) in Winston-Salem, NC and reported to the President/CEO and Vice President from 2006 - 2018. She previously held similar professional roles with Blue Rhino, John Deere - Hitachi and Partners National Health Plans of NC in her career.
She was involved in many charitable organizations to raise money (United Way) along with others and performed as a loaned executive for the United Way when she worked for Partners National Health Plans of NC.
She was long known for her positive outlook on life and her sense of humor, especially with her husband. She would always say at least I keep you smiling and laughing.
