Terry was born Aug. 6, 1956 to Charles and Helen (Koski) Ford, in Aberdeen, Washington. She attended Aberdeen School District and graduated from Weatherwax High School in 1974.

She lived in Forks for several years then moved to Oregon to be closer to her mother and grandmother. She worked for Safeway for 17 years before retiring. Once retired, she moved back to Forks to be closer to her kids and grandkids.

Terry loved spending time outdoors, including driving in the woods, beachcombing and collecting rocks, beach glass and driftwood. She enjoyed making homemade gifts with her findings.
