On July 18, 1971, at Maplecrest Country Club she was united in marriage to Thomas J. Devine. Teri worked as a bookkeeper for Teeter Warsh and as Executive Vice President/Treasurer for Cyclo TNT. She was an incredible, kind, gracious woman who loved being outside and appreciated a fine glass of red wine. She was a superb hostess of family gatherings. Diagnosed with thyroid cancer two years ago, Teri never gave up. She never complained and maintained a brave outlook of an optimistic future even through countless radiation and chemotherapy treatments, hospitalizations and pain.
