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.
