On Thursday, April 28, 2022, Sandra Terry passed away at age 73. Born to Tony and Joanne Kashiwsky and raised in Aliquippa, PA, Sandy met her husband Bruce Terry while he was serving in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. They married and lived in Camp Lejeune, NC for the birth of their son, Matthew, and later moved to New Jersey after Bruce’s discharge. Their second son, Bruce Jr., was born shortly after. Six years later, their baby girl Jennifer was born.
Sandy loved her children and was the best mother anyone could have. She was a wonderful homemaker, supportive of her children’s activities, and also a talented artist. Her various paintings and drawings will be forever cherished.
After Bruce Sr. died of a tragic accident at a relatively young age, Sandy began the second phase of her life. She completed nursing school and had a career as an LPN working at local nursing homes, volunteering for support organizations, and taking pride in providing compassionate care for the elderly until her retirement. Sandy’s greatest joy in retirement was being with her grandchildren, who knew her affectionately as “Bubbe”.
Sandy was preceded in death by her husband, Bruce. She is survived by her brother Ed and wife Sarah of Aliquippa, PA; her son Matthew and wife Shannon of Essex, MD, and their children Sarah and Freddy; son Bruce Jr. and wife Laura of Newtown, CT, and their children Ben, Annabel, and Joey; daughter Jennifer Corcoran and husband Kevin of Egg Harbor Township, NJ, and their children Sean, Tommy, and Bridget.
