Terri was born Dec. 12, 1959, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Ivan Pilcher and Janice Lenzen.
Terri had a love for the Lord and for her family. She shared a special bond with her sisters and cherished their lunch outings, shopping trips, or simply playing cards together. She wrote amazing poetry. She had a passion for her hats, fishing, crafts and the Minnesota Vikings. When able, she would take trips to see her sister in Maine, her favorite and happiest place on Earth.
If she knew you, she would greet you with a smile, a warm conversation, and a surprisingly strong hug.
Terri will continue to live in the memory of all who cared for her.
Terri's family would also like to extend a very special thank-you to her nurses, Melissa, Deb and Amanda; her physical therapist, Matt; and the whole staff at Heritage Specialty Care. You gave her more time with us and she loved you all.
Terri requested that everyone wear their favorite hat!
