“She went softly,” could be a song written just for her. On April 30th, 2022, lying in her bed and closing her eyes, the Lord came for her. She was 58. Mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, she was and always will be, our beloved Teresa Terry.
Teresa was born August 15, 1963, and made her life in Coupeville, WA. She graduated from Coupeville High School in 1981. Shortly after, she met and married Arthur Stoop and had her only child, a son, named Justin.
During this time, she went to work at Prairie Center Market in Coupeville. This became her career, spanning some 35 years. Teresa was a valued employee and had many friends there. Her leisure time was spent reading, doing puzzles, and her much loved cooking shows. Later in her life she went traveling and exploring, which she truly enjoyed.
Teresa and Arthur parted ways and she later met and married Richard Terry. They were together 20 years and formed a business partnership in Central Heating. To mourn her passing, Teresa leaves behind her son, Justin and daughter in law Julie Stoop, her mother, Lila Hutson, her brothers Jesse and Nigell Hutson, and Michael and Rebecca Lodell. Also remaining are her nieces and nephews, Jason, Noah, Hope, Taylor, Jacob, Alex and Richard Terry, her ex-husband and also her many many friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that a contribution be made in her name to the American Heart Association at www.heart.org. All our love goes with you. Til we meet again, my darling Teresa.
