Terry attended Hingham schools, she was an avid fisherwoman who loved the ocean and boating. She loved to travel, enjoying many tropical vacations where she explored the local cuisine and chartered fishing vessels. Her favorite role was that of being “Nana T” to her beloved grandchildren. She played a critical role in their lives and helped them win many awards at the Marshfield fair growing vegetables and flowers, making home-made scarecrows and even cheesecake. She developed her love of antiques into a successful online business where she acquired 2 old fashioned surreys that she could be seen every year proudly walking alongside with her son and grandchildren in Hingham’s 4th of July Parade.
She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
