Terry Ann Marshall, daughter of Charles and Phyllis Marshall, was born September 11, 1949, in Richmond, California, and departed this life July 5, 2017 in Lebanon, Missouri, at the age of sixty-seven years.

Terry moved to Lebanon in 1965, and quickly made friends with all who met her.  She was at her happiest when surrounded by friends and family.  When she wasn’t with the loved ones in her life, she actively planned for future gatherings with those loved ones.  She received immeasurable joy from hosting these gatherings.

Terry was an amazing interior decorator, cleaning and organizing many local homes and businesses over the years.  Naturally, she made friends with her clients, and they became part of her ever-growing extended family.

The loves of Terry’s life were her children and grandchildren.  She gave all of herself to them on a daily basis.  If she was able to provide something for them, or help them through a difficult time, she did so with nothing but love in her heart.  For Terry, nothing compared to the time spent and memories made with them.  She loved them all completely and unconditionally.

Terry is survived by one son, Michael Eugene Wasmer and his wife Stacey of Lebanon, MO; one daughter, Sara Ann Ray and her husband Josh of Lebanon, MO;  two sisters, Sandy Simmons and Pam Marshall of Lebanon, MO; five grandchildren, Shelby and Dylan Wasmer, and Jalen, Jordan, and Paxson Ray of Lebanon, MO; several nieces and nephews; other relatives and many friends, including two special friends, Gaylene Begley and Betty Sheets.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Phyllis Marshall and father, Charles Marshall; her brother, Charles A. Marshall; and her nephew Tim G. Smith..

Terry was the kindest, most caring woman.  She was selflessness personified.  This world lost a strong, positive force that will be missed each day that passes, but she left a small part of her loving energy behind in each of us, to grow into something as beautiful as she was.
