Terri Dyer Mendenhall
Our beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and wife left this world to be with her maker on April 14, 2016. She died at home, surrounded by family, after a courageous battle with cancer. Although she left this world way too soon, she loved life beyond measure and lived every minute to the fullest. She found great joy in taking road trips with her husband, spending time with her children and watching her grandkids participate in various activities. She loved to play in her garden, watch the Cowboys, and spoil her dog Fuzzy. She recently retired from RFMS, in Alabama, after working many years with a group of people she truly adored. She touched the lives of many and will deeply be missed by all of those that loved her.
