Teri’s children were the love of her life . . . until the four grandkids came along. In retirement, she loved to travel and always took her dog, Rocco. She had the uncanny ability to talk to anyone, had an infectious laugh and will be missed dearly.
Left to cherish her memory are daughters, Angela (Josh) Borchardt and Ashley (Joe) Bougie; mother, Maryeau (Lomas) Carver; brothers, Jeff (Nancy) and Kip (Rochel); grandkids, Toby, Roland, Chae and Clay; and numerous nieces and nephews.
