Terri was born on July 19, 1969, in Heidelberg, Germany, to David E. and V. Darlene Whitlow Brawdy.

Terri was preceded in death by her father.

Terri enjoyed her career as a nurse and a nurse educator. Terri started her career as an LPN and later advanced, receiving her bachelor's degree in nursing and later attaining her master's degree in nursing education. Previously Terri worked as a recovery nurse at United Regional in Wichita Falls, Texas, and later at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Mo. Most recently she had joined the staff at the Ralls County Missouri Health Department.

Away from work Terri loved to spend time with her family on the Mississippi River, boating and enjoying time together. She also loved to decorate at Christmas and for other holidays, while always baking the most amazing treats for her family. Terri's brownies and cakes were always enjoyed.  Romance novels, demolition derbies and trips to Branson, Mo., were also a few of Terri's favorites.  Times shared with family and friends were cherished the most by Terri.

Terri was a Christian by faith and was baptized at the First Baptist Church in Richland, Mo., where she remained a member.
