Terry Homme

Posted By obits On September 21, 2016 @ 10:54 am In Obituaries | 8 Comments

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our dear mother Terry Homme after a second battle with cancer. Terry passed away peacefully at the McKenney Creek Hospice on Sunday, September 18, 2016 in Maple Ridge, BC at the age of 64 years.
Terry is survived by her children Sandra (Tom), David (Lavonne) and Jeffrey (Lindsay), and her 12 grandchildren who were the joy of her life. Terry was born in Edmonton, Alberta and moved to Maple Ridge, BC to be near her grandchildren in 2007. She worked with special needs children for over 30 years, most recently at St. Patrick’s School. Her calling in life was to help, teach and encourage these children and through it she touched many lives and set an example for all of us. Terry also loved crafts, especially making hand-made cards that she enjoyed sharing with her family and friends.
Terry was not only an example in life but also in death as she showed tremendous courage, grace and peace throughout her illness. She was looking forward to seeing the face of her Lord Jesus, the source of her strength.

We would like to thank the amazing staff and volunteers at the McKenney Creek Hospice who as Mom put it “treated her like a queen”. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the St. Patrick’s School, Ridge Meadows Hospice Society or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Prayers will be held at 6:30pm on Thursday, September 29, followed by the Funeral Mass on Friday, September 30 at 11:00am at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, 22561 121 Ave, Maple Ridge, BC. Private interment to follow in Alberta.

God bless you Sandy, Tom and family!!!

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
This was Terry, to me, right to the end. Never worrying about where she was going. Her kind hearted spirit, bubbly laugh and grand smile is with me forever and always!! Your Mother, Grandmother & friend touched so many lives as God placed them upon her path. So giving and she spoke so highly of her kids and grandchildren. I will miss her so much but I am comforted knowing I will see her one day again. No more pain and suffering – but dancing and laughing in heaven – Eating cheesecake and making cards!!! Much Love, Carol

Terry was an amazing woman, collegue and friend. She was an inspiration to everyone she met. I was blessed to work with Terry at St. Patrick’s School. I will always cherish the time she spent as an SEA in my classroom and all the conversations and laughs we shared. She is an angel in Heaven now shinning down on us!

Condolences to Sandra, David, Jeffrey and all the lovely grandchildren. Your mother and grandmother, Terry, was a beautiful woman.

I met Terry while she was a patient at McKenney Creek when I was visiting a family friend. After that, each time I went there I would stop in to visit Terry. Tonight when I went to visit my friend I learnt of Terry’s passing.

I would bring my dogs, Lulu and Tika and Terry was always glad to see them. We had many conversations and discovered that Terry and I both shared the same passion, being an EA. She shared stories about students she taught and in the summer she told me to come back in September and tell her about my students and fill her in on what they were doing, etc. Of course I did and she really likes that.

Terry spoke of her children and her lovely grandchildren and was happy to share stories with me. She explained the many photos to me that decorated her room: her beautiful wedding photo, photos of her mom and her while on vacation with her mom, her youngest grandchild and many more.

I will miss my visits with Terry, but I am happy that she is now free of pain.

May Terry Rest in Peace…

My condolences go out to all of Terry’s family, friends, and colleagues. We all feel like we have lost a very special person in our lives, but I am convinced that her incredible spirit, joyful nature, loving heart, and wonderful personality will remain with us, not only in our memories but hopefully in our desire to follow Terry’s beautiful example. I feel truly blessed that I got to be around Terry and get to know her, even just a little bit. I am eternally grateful for the loving and wise words of support she wrote to me just this past spring when I was going through some difficulties. Terry always gave so much of herself to others. Her dignity, strength, and peaceful outlook as she approached the inevitable end of her life will remain a powerful example for the rest of my life. I will miss you dearly Terry but I know you are smiling, laughing, and playing over us. The only advantage of you no longer being with us at St. Patrick’s is that I might actually now get a decent parking spot once in a while

I just need to add something to my previous message as my original messaged seems to have gotten cut off. Terry had such a great sense of humour and would truly appreciate our inside joke about parking at St. Pats.

So long for now Terry, but not goodbye. I have been blessed by your company and loving friendship and I will see you once again in the most divine state you are now in.

Thank you God for giving us the treasure of Terry’s life.

Condolence from Joanne Figueiredo on September 25th, 2016 10:58 pm

My sincere condolences. I worked with Terry at St. Pats for many years. She brought a sense of joy and calm with her. I loved her handmade cards. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out.

Condolence from Eshelle Lam on September 30th, 2016 9:42 am

My deepest condolences to you and your family. Terry was a wonderful, talented lady. We spent many, many hours making cards together at both of our houses. I’m so happy that she considered me a friend.

Terry was like sunbeams to me. Always shining, cheerful and always greeting everyone with a smile.

She will truly be missed.

Condolence from Michaela on October 10th, 2016 7:30 pm
