    There will be a lunch afterwards (1pm) for those who can stay. You are welcome to wear any color. I think mom would have preferred color over black but wear what you are comfortable with. If you need a place to stay, Motel David in Ellsworth is nice and is close to the church.

    Your mom was a member of St. Mary’s Church in New Trier, MN. I got to know her as part of the Hospitality Committee that welcomed Terry and Brian. I considered Terry a good friend. Terry and I made several trips to St. Paul and Rochester delivering mission goods to the needy. We rode to church meetings and to Mass. We also shared lunch on several occasions. She was a great
    person and friend. I was blessed to have known her.

    Girls, Van and I send our condolences to you and your families.
    Terry was such a good example of courage and strength . When the going got tough she got going. I so enjoyed her overnight visits. The trips to and from Lancaster to spend time with her parents up north proved to be a little tiring and she’d crash here because it was midway. We’d have nice long talks and laugh a lot.
    We will always remember our first trip to Sturgis with your folks. We had so much fun we just had to do it again.
    We will miss seeing her photos of all her flowers she posted on Facebook. She adored her grandchildren. May they always fondly remember her forever.
    Van and Kathy Cowden

    I knew Terry from our high school days at Ellsworth. Terry and Brian were a year ahead of my husband Chuck and I. Terry and I were in band together. Brian lived two miles down my road so we rode bus together. I stayed in Ellsworth and would see your mom once in a while. Last time was this fall, I was at Preferred Senior Living volunteering and she was there with your Grandma. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope to meet you on Monday at the funeral. I will also be singing in the choir.

    Have many fond memories of Terry and all of you when you lived in Lancaster and were at our parish and school. A beautiful woman who truly cared and loved others. Know that you will be in my prayers and thoughts, as well as that of St. Clement Parish.
