Terry Vandal

Obituary Picture.JPG


At the age of 48, after a difficult battle with ataxia, Terry Vandal (nee Lippens) passed away quietly on November 16, 2022 in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by family. She will be sadly missed.


Terry was a woman who despite her many life struggles, knew how to laugh and to love.  She loved to dance, spend time with family, particularly at family games nights, and she thrived on Christmas traditions. Terry loved learning. She expressed her creative side through creating homeschool curriculum, website design, wedding planning and catering. Terry was a writer.  She had a poem published at age 15 in a poem anthology, and has written many country songs, two that were recorded and sung in Nashville.  Terry was a woman with many gifts; although often stalled due to her PTSD, her resilience and love, and bravery carried her through.


Terry is survived by her husband Guy, her daughter Katrina (Dietrich), her sons Calum (Evan) and Phillip (Marianne), and two beautiful grandsons, Gabe and Rafi.  Terry will also be deeply missed by her soul friend Bonnie Ferguson-Baird (and family), her cousins Sherry Grift, and Dawn and Jacquline, and their respective families.
