She was preceded in death by her father Arthur McGauley and grandparents.
Teri lived a rich full life enjoying quilting, family time, dancing, reading, watching her favorite old westerns, bird watching, singing, playing games and good jokes. She was so much fun to be with and always had a beautiful smile for everyone. Teri's humor and wit will be missed tremendously by everyone that she touched.
Teri has worked for Missouri State University for 20 years and in recent years accomplished the status of Executive Secretary to the Chief of Staff in the President's Office. Her co-workers became her dearest friends and she appreciated all their love and support through her difficult time.
The family would like to thank everyone for the prayers, help, comfort and support through this trying time and knows that it was all because Teri had such a wonderful spirit . Special thanks to Joni, her awesome neighbor who was invaluable to all of us and to "Birds of a Feather" that orchestrated numerous acts of kindness.
In lieu of flowers, Teri requested to have all donations made to Hospice of Southwest Missouri.
"Everyone who met her became an instant friend"
