PACHECO, Terri (nee Nixon)
August 3, 1964 – April 2, 2015
Heaven has gained such a beautiful angel in Terri (Teresa Lynn). As she plays her heavenly harp, Terri is watching over the love of her life, George, and her beautifully amazing children Jamie, Braydon and Ryan, all of whom she has always been so proud of.
In the afterlife she joins her father Bunny (Bernard) and her grandparents Genevieve and Trigvi Gudmundson and Margaret and Robert Nixon. Left waiting on earth is Terri’s mother Dianne Yusko, sisters Laurie (Patrick) Darcus and Brandi Nixon (Kevin Fulton), and brothers Dan (Keeley) and Darryl Nixon. All miss her deeply and look forward to the day they will be with Terri again. Born in Fort William (now Thunder Bay), Ontario, Terri moved to Pitt Meadows in 1973. She excelled in sports and academics through elementary and high school, and achieved top academic honors at BCIT. After graduating BCIT in 1989 Terri spent the next 26 years working in Medical Records at various locations for Coastal Health. Once her children came along she moved to South Surrey. Terri became the mom who helped organize all the fundraisers and volunteered every time the opportunity presented itself. She was such a selfless giving person who always made people she encountered feel special. Terri loved her walks along the beach, and we will remember her in every sunset – so bright and beautiful. There will be a Catholic Funeral Mass for Terri on Friday April 10th at 1:30pm at Good Shepherd Church, 2250 150th St., Surrey with a Celebration of Life to follow at 3:00pm at Pacific Inn Resort and Conference Centre, 1160 King George Hwy, Surrey. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to one of the following charities: BC Cancer Foundation, Canadian Red Cross or White Rock / South Surrey Hospice Society.
