Terry was born at Swedish Hospital in Seattle, Washington in 1951 as the only child of older parents. For the first five years of her life she lived in a small log home just north of the Seattle city limits. Then the family moved to a larger house inside the city limits, where she lived until 1969. The house was surrounded by wonderful woods. As a child Terry would go out to play in the woods with other neighborhood children in the morning and not come back until dinner.

She went to St. Nicholas (a private girls school in Seattle) for first and second grade because her mother thought her too "smart" to go to kindergarten, and figured that was the only way to skip it. Next Terry went to Seattle Public schools: Cedar Park Elementary for grades 3-6, Jane Adams Junior High School for grades 7-9, and she graduated from Nathan Hale High School June, 1969.

Being a Camp Counselor at Girl Scout Camp Robbinswold from 1968-1970 was Terry's favorite summer job and the friends she made during that time period continue to be some of her best friends even today, decades later. She also worked as a Snack Bar employee with the old Fred Harvey Company at Paradise at Mt. Rainier in 1971, where she met Tom Radcliffe, whom she lived with from 1974 to 1976, and later married from 1976 to 1983. She was a lifeguard at Lake Sammamish State Park, Washington in the summers of 1972, 1973 and 1974.

Terry attended University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington and lived in dorms on campus from September 1969 to June 1971 with Gini Voss, Rhonda Walker, and Grace Kehl. She worked in the food services there. Terry moved back to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, and lived in Seattle from 1971 to 1979. First she shared a house in the University District with old camp friends (Stephanie Hoag, Gail Mifflin, and Liz Sinear) and Mt. Rainier friends, including Marty Hoey (who subsequently died while climbing Mt. Everest). In 1972 Terry and Stephanie moved into an old apartment in the University District, right off "the Ave", above a typewriter store. Rent was $65 per month, and the store contolled the heat - which they would turn off when they left at night. It was a very lively area of the U District, nestled in beside the Hasty Tasty (also called the Nasty Greasy, a 24 hour greasy spoon), the Century Tavern, and a greenhouse growing marijuana in the alley. It had apparently been a sort of "brothel" at one point. Old roomie Rhonda came to live in the apartment in 1973. After that Terry shared other communial "hippie"-type houses with friends in and around the U. District until 1979. She worked at the University YMCA as the Saturday Recreation Director while going to school, as well as various other seasonal jobs.

Terry attended the University of Washington and earned a Bachelors of Arts degree (with a double major in Recreation Planning and Administration; and Psychology) from there in 1973. After the summer, Terry, Stephanie, and Terry's dog, Atlantis A. Dog, travelled around the USA and Canada for 3 1/2 months in a volkswagon bus on an extremely limited budget. They camped in free parks and college campuses (where they could sneak in to take free showers) and stayed with friends and relatives.

She went to work in 1975 as a Psychiatric Technician at Overlake Hospital, Bellevue, Washington. There she met an RN named Bob Weaver, who later was to become her life-partner of 33 years. Terry learned that the RNs who worked where she worked were earning triple the money she was, so she decided to go back to school to get a nursing degree. She stayed at Overlake for about four years, working there at night while she took classes for her nursing career.

Terry became a Registered Nurse in 1983 and started working in Rehabilitation at Seattle's Children's Hospital. After four plus years she transferred to the In-Patient Psychiatric Unit where she stayed a little more than 15 years, until 2003, making many close friends.

Tom and Terry had bought a house in Kirkland, Washington where they lived from 1978 to 1979. Terry then moved to a "shack" on eight acres of land outside of Woodinville, Washington where she lived by herself from 1979 to 1983. The "shack" was an old construction site trailer. The acreage was fertile with a big garden, a little creek, trees, lots of feral cats, and hot air balloons would often fly close overhead.

Terry entered a domestic partnership with Bob on the 29th of January, 1983 until his death in 2015. They moved into the old house in Kirkland, which Terry had bought from Tom. They adopted two sons from Bulgarian orphanages, 3 3/4 year old Velizar in 1993, and 3 year old Anton in 1995.

Terry retired, basically to do "home care nursing" with family (as well as being a stay-at-home-mom) from 2004 to 2015, taking care of: the two boys, her Aunt Doris with dementia, her mother who lived to be 102 years old, and her ailing domestic partner for the last four to five years of his life.

When Bob finally completely retired beause of increasing disability and illness, he and Terry moved to her mother's old house at Lake Margaret, above Duvall, Washington - in the base of the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Velizar continued to live in the old Kirkland house. Terry took care of Bob at the Lake until his death, and continues to live there with Anton.

Terry has been an active volunteer in the non-profit support group, Washington State (later the Pacific Northwest) Chapter of Families for Russian and Ukrainian Adoptions Including Neighboring Countries (FRUA INC) since 2002, serving as Secretary. She later served on the National FRUA INC Board of Directors as the National Outreach Chair, and then National Education Chair.

Hi Terry,

I was wondering if perhaps you would be interested to work on the Portal World-The Netherlands with Melissa and Bill and hopefully more members ? I was thinking maybe we can make it a sub Project of the Dutch Roots Project, where you all can add or work on more specific things related to the Netherlands you would like to see added there or work on.

If you are interested just add your name to the list and let me know, or you can of course contact Melissa or Bill directly.

Greets from the Netherlands,

Bea :)
