Lillian Claire (Kittle) Donlon known as Terry to most, was born in Glendale California in 1922. She married James Terrell in 1942 but divorced after just a few years, moving to Las Vegas where her mother was living.

Later she met a young Air force Lt named Bill Donlon. They were married in 1949 and shared an exciting life for almost 60 years. They lived in New York City, Brazil, Argentina, Panama and Rio de Janeiro. She was awarded a job to work at the White House for the Secretary of the Air Force however it coincided with her husband's promotion and they were transferred to Brazil. After a crash course in Portuguese she learned to entertain diplomats and host receptions for formal events with Brazilian Air Force personnel.

When Bill retired they moved to Florida then on to California . After Bill's death in 2003 she moved to Oregon. She was an avid bridge player who loved painting and singing. She will be dearly missed by her family and many friends.
