Terry graduated from Classical High School and Framingham State College. She practiced at the Worcester Pastoral Counseling Center as a psychotherapist for thirty-five years. After retirement from the center she continued her private practice actively counseling clients until her recent illness.
Terry spent her life caring for and impacting the lives of others. As the mother of nine, she was a constant supporter, counselor and cheerleader actively sharing in her children’s lives and enjoying her 32 member multi-generational family.
Terry devoted her counseling career to improving the plight of families suffering from addiction. Deeply empathetic to those in need of help, she established the Hilltop Al-Anon Meeting in her home. For 30 years the meetings at Terry’s home provided comfort and guidance to countless people afflicted by the insidious family disease.
