6 Tributes to Mary Theresa “Terri” Abraham

  1. Chuck Sovick says:

    I loved my cousin very much. I was her first cousin on her father’s side and grew up with her. Terri was intelligent and goal-driven. The family will miss her very much and have fond memories of picnics, family dinners, holidays, birthdays, and graduations that we celebrated together. Terri was closest in age to my sister Marianne and was the same age.
    We grew up in the same church and were the same nationality. Terri’s father was my mother’s sister. I was like the big brother she never had during her childhood. Terri’s passing has been a shock to me and brings my sorrow into my life. May she rest in peace cousin, I love you.

      Terri was my nursing school roommate at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Even though the years have passed so fast, it seems like yesterday I can hear her laughing and helping me study! She was a beautiful person, inside and out, may you Rest In Peace, my dear friend.

  2. Sara Hanna Rochon says:

    What wonderful times Terri and I had so many, many years ago. May her memory be eternal.

  3. Marcia Augustyn-Lindsay says:

    I was shocked and saddened to learn of Terri’s death this morning. We were great friends and colleagues when we both worked at Saint E’s. We lost touch with each other over 20 years ago. We had many laughs together, we exercised and studied and sometimes cried together. She even lived with me for a couple of months. I was always sorry that we didn’t keep in touch as our lives changed. My sincere condolences to her family. May she rest in peace.

  4. Joseph F. Alexander, Jr., MD., Charlotte, NC says:

    Although I had not seen Terri in many years, I remember her well from our days together at Ursuline High School as very intelligent, energetic and compassionate.. We would encounter one another from time to time at the YSU social haunts and we last chatted at one of the early class reunions. It is no surprise that she had chosen the path of service. I can imagine that she brought comfort to innumerable patients during her career. I am saddened by her passing, but she undoubtedly has left a large footprint on this earth. She will always be remembered by many.

  5. Norma Kohowski Peterson, Eugene, Oregon says:

    Oh, Terri! It seems like yesterday we were laughing as you helped me study in the dormitory at St. E’s, I was your roommate. May you Rest In Peace, my friend.
