Teri had an infectious sense of humor Teri L. Dunnegan, 57, was born July 25, 1949, the first of two children to Ken and Helen Armone. She passed from this earth on Tuesday Nov. 14, 2006, at her home in Ava, from cancer.
She was the devoted and loving wife to Air Force Lt. Colonel (Retired) Harrison Dunnegan and while she had two natural children, Patrick Dunnegan and Clanci Clemens, when asked she would say she had four children to include her children’s spouses, Kathy Dunnegan and Tommy Clemens.
She is survived not only by her husband and children but also by a sister, Toni Lucas and grandchild Kailee Clemens, as well.
She loved her family and friends and spending time with them was one of her greatest joys.
Teri loved the Lord with all her heart and shared this love with everyone she met. Despite her struggle with cancer she remained very active in her church community. She organized and led a community prayer team and was a leader in a community Bible study for several years. Teri had an infectious sense of humor that was evident in everything she did from the stories she told to the lessons she taught.
Teri was a Christian author. The Lord blessed her with the gift of verse and her greatest love was to glorify Him in her writing. She shared her faith through a weekly column called “The Watering Hole” for the Douglas County Herald.
She also wrote several faith-based articles for various magazines and publications. Recently, she finished her first Christian cozy mystery; sadly, she will not be here to see it published. She was always available to listen and shared her strength, love, and faith with everyone around her. She will be sorely missed by all those whose lives she touched.
