Terry Rose Obituary

Terry Lee Rose, a beacon of love and dedication in her community, passed away peacefully on December 15, 2023, at the Hospice Family Care Center in Huntsville. Born on October 20, 1952, in San Diego, California, Terry's life was a vibrant journey filled with love, sports, and family.

Terry's youthful days in San Diego were the foundation of a life-long love affair with sports. She carried the spirit of her beloved city in her heart, always cheering for the Chargers and the Padres with unwavering enthusiasm. Her passion for the games was not just that of a spectator; she reveled in the details, meticulously keeping scores and celebrating every victory as if it were her own.

Her role as a team mom extended beyond her own children to her siblings, demonstrating early on the loving and thoughtful nature that would define her. Terry's presence on the sidelines was a source of encouragement and support, her cheers echoing as a testament to her dedication to her family's endeavors.

Terry's legacy is carried on by a loving family, who were her pride and joy. Her husband, James "Jim" Rose, was her partner in every sense, sharing with her a life full of cherished moments. Her children, David (Michelle) Rose and Rhonda (Rex) Balard, were the embodiment of her nurturing spirit. Her grandchildren, Ava Rose and Jenna Balard, will forever carry her love and lessons in their hearts.

Terry's siblings, Bobby, Sandy, Linda, Vicky, and Rochelle, will remember her as the glue that held them together, a sister whose love knew no bounds. Her family takes comfort in knowing that she is now reunited with her parents, Robert and Phyllis Prior McCarthy, and her brother, John, who preceded her in death.

Those who knew Terry will remember her as the epitome of what it means to be loving and thoughtful. Her kindness touched the lives of many, and her memory will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to have felt the warmth of her presence.

As we bid farewell to Terry Lee Rose, we celebrate a life truly well-lived, marked by an unwavering commitment to her family and an infectious love for the games that brought them together. Her spirit will forever be a guiding light to all who knew her. Terry's life was a testament to the power of love, and her story will be told with joy and gratitude by generations to come.

The family has chosen cremation and will hold a memorial service at a later time.
