She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Colonial Dames, Daughters of the American Colonists, and the National Society of Magna Charta Dames.

She was preceded in death by her son, Peter Robin Terry and her sister, Marthagene Bihn Rutlege.

Terry; son, Rex Sam Terry and his wife Patty Terry; son, Ted Terry; grandchildren, Amy Terry Carr and her husband Blaine Carr, Robert Rex Terry and his wife Summer Terry, Traci Carlson, Max Terry and Emily C.
