Terry was a devoted and loving aunt to a large family that included 19 cherished nieces and nephews, five beloved Godchildren, many grand nieces and nephews, and most recently, a great-great baby niece. She most especially adored,and loved with all her heart her chosen grandchildren Christopher, Cole, Olivia and Ava.
She embraced social media and expressed her family pride sharing the most up-to-date photos posted throughout her extensive friend and family online network. Terry stayed connected and engaged with her family and friends until the end of her life.
Terry began her working career at First National Supermarkets. Her brother Adolph opened two businesses in East Hartford, Holland Machine & Unas Grinding. Terry provided administrative support in these family-run business and worked with them until her retirement.

She enjoyed watching college basketball (UConn Men and Women), football, and her cherished Little League championship games. She leaves behind close friends from her happy days playing Bingo at Foxwoods.
Terry was a caregiver throughout her long life. She was like a “second mom” to multiple generations within the Endrelunas family. In their failing years, she was also an end-of-life angel to her brothers and sisters. She touched the lives of so many generations who felt her love.
