I am so sorry to learn about the death of Terry Brown. She was a lovely woman and I enjoyed spending time with her at church. She did so much for both St. Joseph and St. Mary parishes. Terry is now with her beloved husband Dick whom she missed so much after his passing. May they both rest in peace. I pray the wonderful memories you have of Terry bring you comfort during the difficult days ahead.
