Teri Devine

Theresa Ann Devine, “Teri”, 68, passed away on Monday, January 1, 2018 at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee. Teri was born on August 25, 1947, in Racine, and was the daughter of Richard and Mary (Nee: Szondi) Barrows.

Teri graduated from St. Catherine’s High School “Class of 1967” and earned a B.A. Degree in English from U.W. Parkside.  On July 18, 1971, at Maplecrest Country Club she was united in marriage to Thomas J. Devine. Teri worked as a bookkeeper for Teeter Warsh and as Executive Vice President/Treasurer for Cyclo TNT.     She was an incredible, kind, gracious woman who loved being outside and appreciated a fine glass of red wine.  She was a superb hostess of family gatherings.   Diagnosed with thyroid cancer two years ago, Teri never gave up.  She never complained and maintained a brave outlook of an optimistic future even through countless radiation and chemotherapy treatments, hospitalizations and pain. Teri was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.  She will be dearly missed.
