TERRY, ALICE SUSANNA: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice
Chicago Tribune (IL) - November 2, 2006
Alice Susanna Terry, nee Rabe, age 92, born in Fort Recovery, Ohio, passed away October 28. She is survived by her loving children, Ruth Terry of Matteson, IL and Dale Terry of Sacremento, CA; cherished grandchildren, Joelle Terry and Loren Terry of Sacramento, CA; beloved sisters, Lillian Morris of Youngtown, AZ and Doris Huey of Marysville, OH; many nieces and nephews; and devoted caregiver, Alen Ashburn. Alice was preceded in death by her devoted husband of 57 years, Wendell G. and her parents, William and Fanny, nee Snyder Rabe. Alice graduated from Ohio Mechanics Institute, Cincinnati, OH with advanced credentials in Dressmaking and Tailoring. In 1939, she moved to Chicago, IL and began a career as a seamstress in the tailoring department at Marshall Fields department store. Alice, then sharing an apartment with Irene Blaylock, met Wendell at the Cornell Avenue Church of Christ in 1947 and they married in June 1948 at the University of Chicago Rockefeller Chapel. The Rabe family arrived as immigrants from Europe in 1947, leaving from Hamburg, Germany by sailing vessel. After a stormy voyage of 12 weeks, the Rabe family landed in New Orleans, LA. It was the intention of the captain to arrive at New York but adverse winds drove the ship off course. Continuing up the Mississippi River the family, led by Alice's great-grandfather, John Rabe, arrived in Cincinnati where a land grant was purchased in what then were the wilds of Mercer County, OH. The old Rabe homestead was a log cabin located 5 miles north of New Bremen, OH. A visitation will be held Saturday, November 4 from 9 a.m. until time of service 10 a.m. at the Park Forest Church of Christ, 206th & Crawford, Matteson. Interment will be at Skyline Memorial Park, Monee. For info 708-748-8031.
