Terryberry, Jean M.

Jean M. Terryberry, loving wife of Alan Terryberry for more than 54 years, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 24, 2019. Jean moved to Connecticut from Schenectady, NY eventually residing in Farmington with her husband Alan and their beloved cat.
Jean is survived by her son Alan Jr. and spouse, Lisa of Unionville; her brother Murdo Murray and spouse, Barbara of Clarence, NY and many nieces and nephews; predeceased by her sister Catherine (Murray) Marshall and brother Donald Murray.

A member of the Lord’s church, Jean worshipped at the Church of Christ in Manchester, CT. She was a caring special education teacher in the school districts of Kenmore and Schenectady, NY. Jean always enjoyed dinners hosted by her daughter-in-law Lisa and being surrounded by family. Her hobbies included crafts and puzzles – usually with a cat-theme. She liked watching golf and attended Buffalo Bills games, live theatre and many other sporting events throughout her life. Those closest to her knew her to be skilled at sleuthing, attending murder mystery productions and correctly identifying the guilty culprit on more than one occasion.

The family would like to thank the staff at Touchpoints in Farmington for the wonderful, compassionate care they provided Jean over the last 2 months.

A private service will be held at The Ahern Funeral Home, 111 Main St., Rt. 4, Unionville on Saturday, July 27, 2019.
