Affectionately known as Terry Mary Perry, beloved wife and best friend of Hal for fifty-five years, passed away with grace and dignity on Sunday, February 19, 2006, surrounded by her loving family.
She was predeceased by an infant daughter. Born in Winnipeg, MB, a graduate of St. Mary’s Academy who also attended the University of Manitoba, Terry worked for Singer’s in Winnipeg as a young woman where she forged lifelong friendships. She spent many years as a bookkeeper with the Red River Exhibition in Winnipeg and Bondars Fine Furniture in Calgary where she moved with her family in 1972. Terry was a dedicated mother, devoted to her precious family. The boundless love she held for everyone she ever cared for sparkled through her incredible blue eyes. She was a fabulous cook and gracious hostess who enjoyed entertaining. Terry also enjoyed gardening and was most content spending time there, enjoying the fruits of her labour with a good book. She was a voracious reader and great conversationalist with an unprecedented sense of humour. Her mind was as sharp as her heart was deep.
Terry is lovingly remembered and will be profoundly missed by her devoted husband; sons and daughter and their families, David (Leslie), Jeff (Carol) and Barbara (Bob); grandchildren, Curtis (his mother Deb and stepfather Eric), Michelle (Travis), Michael, Robyn, and Holly; and great-grandson Blake. She leaves to cherish her memory three brothers, Jim (Judy) of Kelowna, BC, Harry (Evelyn) of Napanee, ON and Howard (Mary) of Winnipeg; brother-in-law Allan of Winnipeg; nieces and nephews; extended family; and many dear friends and neighbours.
