Being an avid reader resulted in newspaper ink everywhere. Terry was a published author of "Epistles of Friendship" (2015) and was instrumental in revitalizing the City of Fossil Public Library.

Terry converted to Catholicism after many years of visiting Mt. Angel Abbey and established a trust to support Mt. Angel seminarians in their education.

Her grandmother Lillian Prindle influenced her with a love for rural America. She inherited strength and dynamism from the women in her life, in particular her mother, aunts, and grandmothers. She felt deeply that her children and grandchildren were “strong, loving, achieving, contributing individuals. They are the fruition, the harvest in the winter season of my life.”


She is survived by husband, Charles Terhune; children, Chip, Elizabeth, and Catherine Terhune; grandchildren, Ben and Grete Feldman and Morgan and Cole Terhune. She was aunt to Beth Swanson, Kari Egger, Brad, Rob, and David Brotherton, Annie Ellingham, Kelly Petersen, John and Scott Terhune.

She was predeceased by brother, William “Biff” Brotherton.

The service will be private and for family only.

Donations in Terry’s memory may be made to Fossil Educational Foundation, P.O. Box 206, Fossil, OR 97830.

The family expresses their deep gratitude to the dedication and thoughtfulness of the OHSU caregivers.
