Terri Morgan, 47

Terri Morgan, 47, of Austin, Minnesota, and formerly of Lime Springs, Iowa, passed away Saturday, Sept. 23 at her home. After a courageous battle with mental illness, she chose to join her beloved Chelsey.

Terri Lee Henry was born in Washington, Pennsylvania on April 12, 1970, the fourth of five children born to Robert “Bob” and Janet (Wolfe) Henry. The family moved to Lime Springs in 1976, where she attended the local elementary and graduated from Crestwood High School in 1988. She then went to school, becoming a cosmetologist for several years. She later worked at Sara Lee in New Hampton, Iowa, until it closed. At that time she earned her RN degree and worked at the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota, Adams (Minnesota) Health Care Center and most recently, Faith Lutheran Home in Osage, Iowa.

She was united in marriage to Dennis Morgan and they later divorced. The couple raised four children together. Terri had a very caring nature, always putting others before herself. She enjoyed finding fun things to do with her children to make their time together memorable. Her talents included making jewelry, decorating her home and gymnastics.
