Terri was born Nov. 30, 1960, in Aurora, Ill. In 1972 Terri and her family moved to Pleasant Lake outside of Hackensack. Terri loved the outdoors and late night walleye fishing.
Terri was crowned the Hackensack Sweetheart Queen in her senior year as well as being a high school home coming attendant. After graduation she met the love of her life, Dennis Tysver, and they remained in the Walker area to raise their family.
Terri was always outgoing, full of life, and easy to love by all who knew her. She had a deep love for family and friends. Her presence and gift of who she was will not be forgotten.

My Peace Of Mind
My thoughts are cluttered with depression and despair, and those who have hurt others, but don’t seem to care.
As if on a roller coaster, I’m up and I’m down, but thoughts of the past keep going ‘round and ‘round.
I pray each night to God up above, to give me strength and send us His love.
I have sought out doctors, searching to find, why I am feeling like I’ve lost my mind.
I sigh as I say, “When will this all end?” while holding onto the hope that this too, is only a trend.
Sometimes I shake and I shake — oh, what a site! yet, I still hang in there and continue to fight.
It’s strange how stress can take over one’s mind, and the only cure is prayer, medication and time.
And now this stress has lasted well over a year, I must hold in my heart that the end is near.
