Terry was born March 20, 1944, and was raised in Rockledge, Florida, where she graduated from Rockledge High School in 1962.  After graduating she married James Shipley (1965) and had three children: Marion Thomas, Cassy (Dan) Beaulieu, and Pam (Paul Kuchta) Smith. In 1974 she married Jeff Persse and had two children: Jamie (Roger) Kiser and John (Angel) Persse. Terry loved walking on the beach, storytelling, fishing and her grandchildren, who fondly called her “Ena” after her renaming by Jo-jo.
