So sorry to hear about the passing of Teresa Ferragine. She was the very first person to sell my handicrafts in her little store when I was a kid. I will never forget how special that made me feel, and even years later when I’d see her, she always remembered me and we’d reminisce about my silly marionette puppets. She was a very sweet lady.

Sending prayers to the family. Terri was a great lady. I worked with her at Sylvania and we had a lot of good times and laughs together. I enjoyed talking to her at the hospital gift shop; we still had some laughs about old times at Sylvania. She will be greatly missed.

Nancy and family,
You are in my thoughts and prayers. May your mom rest in peace. So sorry I didn’t make it to the viewing. I just found out this evening.

Sara Shuey Myers and Karrie Reed Gardner March 20, 2014 at 9:41 pm

We both worked with Terry at the Red Cross and both enjoyed our days spent with Terry. She was such a wonderful, caring woman. We both feel we learned so much from her. I know I can make a better pasta sauce from her! I also work at the hospital and looked forward to walking by the gift shop on Tuesdays and got a wave hello and the occasional hug. She will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

With love,
Karrie Reed Gardner and Sara Shuey Myers

I am so saddened to hear of Terry’s passing. I knew her from when my mother and I lived on West Oilwell Street. She had such a fantastic personality. I never forgot about her and thought of her frequently throughout the years. She attended my Aunt Wanda’s services a few years ago, and she had me in stitches, telling me stories about living at the high rise, she had the BEST sense of humor and smile! My sincerest condolences go out to her girls and grandchildren, she was such an incredible lady who touched so many people’s lives.
