I was fortunate to have worked with Terry for the past 25 years as well and she will certainly be missed. The firm was very fortunate to have such a dedicated employee and its members were lucky to have such a great co-worker. She always greeted you with a smile and had a great sense of humour. She recently commented on her pleasant surprise at a resurgence of people’s interest in actual books, as opposed to the endless online resources. My condolences to the family. Rest In Peace, my friend.

I worked at the same firm as Terry. She was always so efficient and resourceful and happy to comply with any request. She was my friend and we were able to confide in each other. She organized the lottery group in our firm and tried her best to win us the big lottery. She was the best Avon rep anyone could ask for. I was absolutely shocked to hear of her sudden passing. I will miss Terry greatly. My condolences to her family.

I've known Terry for a few decades now, ever since our two employers merged. Terry was everything you want in a colleague and a librarian: hard-working, sharp, customer-oriented, plain-speaking, level-headed and humorous. Sitting in Ontario, I looked forward to any opportunity to pick up the phone and call her, or for her to call me. We would conclude our business, then talk about football. I was born in Saskatchewan and am a die-hard Rider fan, while Terry was pretty firmly in the Stampeder camp by the time we met. She had a great eye for football, and her observations were quite astute...and delivered with her dry, wry delivery. There will be so much to remember and so much to miss about Terry. I hope Terry's family finds consolation in the very high esteem in which her co-workers held her. We were proud to work with her, and happy to know her. - Ian Colvin
