Her love for animals was evident with the cats she rescued and gave forever homes to and loved so much.

(Daly) Terry of Dalton and her siblings Christopher Terry (Dee) of Bentonville, AR; Joanne Warren (David) of Dalton; Patricia Eksuzian (Dean) of Pittsfield; and David Terry (Renee) of Cape Coral, FL.
