Another Angel has entered Heaven: Matousek, Terri Lee 58 years old passed away February 16th, 2013. Terri was born November 17th, 1954 in Santa Monica California to William and Audrey Smith. Terri loved California and was always happy to be a California-Girl! She moved to Williston, North Dakota as a teen with her mother and graduated from Williston High School. Following graduation Terri relocated to Arizona and started a family.
Terri loved and lived life to the fullest and on her own terms with an indomitable spirit. She was a loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend! Terri will be missed by all until we meet up with her again.
Terri is survived by her husband Bret Matousek who loves her dearly, Son Lucas (Sandi) Halley, Son Jeremy (Katie) Halley, Sister Marla (Les) Bean, Brother Doug (Ranee) Smith, 5 Grandchildren Lily, Rose, Nolan, Connor, Daisy and countless friends who's lives she's touched in her own special way!
Terri was a professional barber for many years and was part of the original Long Hair Inc. She worked for UPS for 15 years and was always proud of the Brown Uniform. She loved animals and her household was always filled with loving pets.
Terri's Heart was always bigger than her home and it was impossible to avoid her loving spirit and physical affection!
