Terry L. Wenger: 1937 – 2023

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Terry Wenger, who left this world on November 10, 2023 at the age of 86.

Terry was born on June 27, 1937, in Riverton, Wyoming to her loving parents A.G. “Red” and Rose McLaughlin. She held the position of the eldest among five daughters and one younger brother. She quietly embraced a life of love and esteem towards her family and loved ones. Terry was the proud mother to two sons: Samuel John and Timothy James; and one daughter, Jennifer Ann – a quiet reflection of her continuous love. Her legacy will live on through the love and strength she instilled in each of them.

As a grandmother, Terry Wenger delighted in the laughter and joy of her four grandchildren: Joshua (Wenger), Kimberly (Wenger), Samantha (Brewer), and Elijah (Wenger). Their youthful energy brought a sparkle to her eyes, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

Later in life, she became a great-grandmother to two beautiful great-granddaughters, Anastacia (Brewer) and Autumn (Brewer), adding another layer of love to her ever-growing family tree.

In her final years, Terry found solace and tranquility in the coastal beauty of Texas. She was surrounded by the comforting presence of her oldest son, Samuel John, creating a place of love and support that defined her later years.

Terry Wenger is survived by all of her children; grandchildren; and great-grandchildren; a testament to the enduring impact of her love and guidance. Her memory will forever be etched in our hearts. In the absence of immediate plans for a funeral or memorial service, we ask for your understanding and patience during this time of reflection and grief.

The family is currently considering the most fitting way to honor and celebrate Terry’s life and any updates regarding memorial arrangements will be communicated at a later date. Your thoughts, prayers, and support are deeply appreciated as the family navigates through this difficult period.
