Terry Lynn Parker Morris

Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate Terry's life at Margarita Ranch. Your love and support means so very much.  To honor Terry's memory, donations may be made to: Terry Morris Memorial Fund c/o American National Bank, 2703 Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX 75219.

Terry Lynn Parker Morris passed away Wednesday, April 21, 2010.  Terry was born March 12, 1954 at Carswell Air Force Base in Ft. Worth, Texas to Bob and Joyce I. Parker.  Terry was married to her high school sweetheart Michael Morris on June 15, 1984, in Lahina, Maui, Hawaii.  After time spent in Newport Beach, California and Houston, Texas, Terry and Michael returned to the Dallas/Ft Worth area, making their permanent home in the Las Colinas area of Irving, Texas.

Terry's enormous appetite for life, her talent and skills left an indelible impression on all that met her over the years. She found great pleasure in creating and maintaining her wonderful garden as well as her beautiful home. Among her friends she was known for her tireless efforts on behalf of animal rights, particularly the strayed and homeless.  Terry's generosity continues even in death as an organ donor, impacting the lives of four people who were hospitalized and in critical need.

Terry is survived by her husband, Michael Morris; mother, Joyce I Parker of Grand Prairie, Texas; father, Bob Parker of Kaufman County, Texas; and brother, Keith Parker of Arlington, Texas. She also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Terry's Life was held at the couple's restaurant, Margarita Ranch, on Thursday, May 6, 2010, at 1:00 P.M.  In lieu of customary remembrance, the family respectfully requests that donations be made in Terry's name to an animal rescue shelter, the name of which will be announced at that time.
