Terri Lynn Troutman
November 29, 1952 – December 12, 2021
Terri Lynn Troutman, 69, passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by her family on December 12, 2021, after a long illness.
Terri was born on November 29, 1952 in Washington, D.C. to Glenna Mae Taylor and Harold Gilbert Taylor. She grew up in Prince George’s County (College Park & Beltsville) with her parents and younger sister, Debbie. She graduated from High Point High School in Beltsville, Maryland in 1970. Terri retired from Computer Science Corporation in 2006. Terri was a people person, always glad to see everyone and willing to give a hand or step in to help in any way. She did NOT know how to say “no” to anyone who needed help. Terri’s pride and joy were her two daughters and seven grandchildren. Terri was a quintessential Momma-Bear and would move mountains for her girls, if necessary. She was a single mom who worked relentlessly to give her girls everything they could possibly need and want, especially hugs and kisses!
Terri loved animals of all types, but none more than her beloved late puppies, Dusty, Maggie, Coco and Cookie. They had every toy and coat you could imagine. Her lap was never empty.
Terri loved to sing…even if she didn’t hit every note or know the words. She was always humming or singing to herself, be it to the radio, through every movie, commercial and especially through Football games. HAHA
Besides spending time with her family and pups, Terri loved spending time at her church, First Lutheran in Sunderland, MD. She was a woman of deep devoted faith. She loved her church friends and was a proud member of the church choir and the altar guild. Terri was amazingly skilled at arts and crafts. When home, she always had a crochet needle in her hands working on a baby blanket for friends, family or even for people she didn’t know. Terri also loved making jewelry, but it was making crafts with her grandkids that she loved most.
Terri is survived by her daughter Traci A. Evans, son-in-law William (Doc), grandchildren William II, Nathanial, Benjamin and Kaitlyn of Owings, Maryland and daughter Patricia L. Morse, son-in-law Adam and granddaughters Olivia, Alyson and Elena of Ellicott City, Maryland. Terri is also survived by her sister, Deborah Taylor Goldbach, brother-in-law John C. Goldbach and nephew John P. Goldbach, his wife Kimberly and their daughter Lily of St. Mary’s County, MD.
