Although Terri had not been well for several months her sudden passing to the Glorious Kingdom on August 14, 2009 in Albuquerque, New Mexico was quite unexpected. She was fifty-six years of age. Terri led an eventful life. Perhaps the words that best describe her are found in the well used statement that "She never met a stranger."
She was born in Baird, Texas. At the young age of sixteen she discovered and accepted the Baha'i Faith, and remained firm throughout her life in her love for world unity and the oneness of mankind. Terri had a great interest in movie making, and participated for a time with the Poco Loco Players in Grants. She was also a member of For the Animals of Cibola County, and she had a special affinity for cats.
She is survived by her loving husband: Paul Stern of Grants, New Mexico; Mother: Ruby Longrie of Grants, New Mexico; Daughter: Teresa Hornberger of Grants, New Mexico; Son: Keith Bradshaw of Cleveland, Texas; Brothers: Dennis Savell of Hobbs, New Mexico, Steve Savell of Odessa, Texas and Terry Don Longrie of Missouri and Louisiana; 5 Grandchildren and 1 Great Grandchild.
She is preceded in death by her father: Charles Savell.
