  1. I worked with Terri years ago at Bank One, then Chase. She was an amazing person. I always remember her smile and laugh. Prayers for her and her family.
    Debbie (Skillman) Joyce

  2. I worked with Terri at two different banking centers. We had some good times. She was a decaded wife,mother and friend. Mary and Ronnie Bastin

  3. Oh Terri, you were such an awesome friend, a dedicated banker a wonderful wife & companion to Gary. Mother to Andrew. All that knew you miss you terribly. Rest in peace 💔

  4. I knew Terri from the bank and we lived down the street from Her and Gary. She was a great person. I am so sorry for your loss.

  5. To the Whistler family and dear friends, I am so sorry for your loss. Healing thoughts and prayers. Embrace your beautiful memories of this lady you called, wife, mom, and dear friend.

  6. My heart breaks for our loss, but she is not lost. I have no doubt we have gained an Angel…though she would prefer to be dressed in red. She had the purest soul, loved with her whole heart and was immaculate – from her perfectly trimmed bangs, flawless manicure, jovial sense of humor and quick wit to her tenacity when shopping for the perfect gift and the pride and persistence she took in completing any task. I am a better person just for knowing her. It was a blessing and privilege being part of her life. Terri – I’ll miss you until we meet again…I love you.

  7. I was blessed to have worked closely with Terri for over 20 years, and I’ll think of her whenever I see a red handbag.

  8. Terrie was always fun to visit with. I don’t ever remember seeing her without her beautiful smile. I always enjoyed talking with her no matter the subject. Sending hugs and prayers to the family.

  9. I am so sorry to hear of this loss. She was such a kind and good person, always smiling. She will be missed. Prayers to the family at this time.
