Terry "Carter" Cole left this world for the next on Tuesday, March 19th, 2019, surrounded by love, light, and energy.
Terry was born at St. Vincent's Hospital in Erie, PA to loving and devoted parents, the late Edward G. and Jean R. Carter, formerly of Lewisburg, PA
Terry was a graduate of Rice Avenue Union High School in Girard, PA, where she served as Student Council President, and went on to graduate from Mansfield University with a bachelor's degree in Psychology. After relocating to Owego, NY, for what would become a lifetime devotion to social work and human services, Terry went on to graduate from Marywood University with a master's degree in Social Work. This degree was earned while also working full time and raising her family.
Terry loved the journey of life and everything that went with it, especially relationships, friendships, and connections made along the way. She enjoyed bicycling, gardening,
bird-watching, and cherished time spent with and the blessing of loved ones, friends, and family.
