Remembrances

  1. We are sorry for the loss to the family and friends. We attended
    church with The Jenkins’ Family in Turlock, Ca. There were many memorable times we had, but the one memory we shared was one Sunday night after church a volleyball game got started and we decided to have an impromtu Hot dog BBQ. It ended up we cooked lots of hotdogs and Terry and I got into Who could eat the most hotdogs. Needless to say we both ate more than our share, but we laughed and kidded and had a really good fellowship. We spent many times in church. and at Women’s Retreat. Through the years I have thought a lot about that those days. Terry you will be missed by many and have been missed by us since we left Turlock
    church.

  2. Terry you will be missed. I will miss your smile, laughter and jokes. God needed you at this time.

    Until we meet again. Love you Becky

  3. I must have met Terry around 1969??? We grew up in church together. Such a dedicated and quiet person that had a contagious laugh and smile. I know she is having a great time in heaven and the rest of us will miss her till we join her. Prayers and hugs to the family.

  4. I have known Sister Terry since 1985…she’s such a blessing to me and my 2 Sons Scott and Shawn during the years when we were there at Turlock Freewill Baptist Church in Turlock, California. But, always stay in touch with her love on Facebook. I’ll miss her ❤.Praying for her Families and Friends. Love you,Sister Terry xoxo

  5. I knew Terry since 1976 and am happy to say she was one of my sweetest friends. We shared three vacations to Hawaii (her first trip to the islands), Philadelphia (for a 3 Stooges Convention), and Atlanta (touring Civil War sites in the South). She was shy and so it was easy to tease her – and she took it very well. It was fun to see her come out of her shell over time. She took great pride in her work and treated her coworkers with respect. I am sorry she had such a short time to truly enjoy her retirement but she accepted her illness with grace. I know that her faith gave her great peace of mind and soul. I will miss her sweet smile and kindness.
