It is with great sadness that we share the news of Terry’s passing on Sunday, December 23, 2018. Terry lived in her beloved home in Park Manor for 50 years. Her years there were spent with many great friends and family. Terry welcomed everyone into her home with the intention of making them feel special. She was always the life of the party. Terry loved her antiques and with her husband Jim, owned “Davidson Antiques” for many years. She could decorate a room like no other. Her camp on Sacandaga Lake was her heaven on earth! Her friendships from the lake were very dear to her. Terry was predeceased by her beloved husband of 50 years Jim.
