Mrs. Terry was born May 14, 1929, to Wesley Miller and Enola (Keaton) Harper in Waco. After graduating from Brenham High School, she met the love of her life, James M. Terry, Jr. at Baylor University. They married November 26, 1947 and graduated together from Baylor in August of 1949. She was a teacher with Houston Independent School District and The Pelletieri Reading Clinic of St. Thomas University in Houston for many years. After retiring in 1982, she and James moved to Cameron. During her retirement, she enjoyed her grandchildren visiting every summer, gardening, reading, and her membership at Grace Church. When she turned 60, she was active in the Cameron Senior Center, where she was a member of the Kitchen Band and helped with the exercise program during the early and mid 1990’s. She was a loving wife for 64 years. Her family was her passion.
