Mary Ann Rose Meyer was born December 25, 1926, in Lake Henry, Minnesota to Simon and Gertrude (Laubach) Meyer. She was united in marriage to Jerome Terres on June 30, 1947, at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Greenwald.  The couple owned Jerry’s Tavern in Greenwald from 1947 through 1957.  They then farmed near Spring Hill until selling the farm to their son, Rick.  While farming, Jerry and Mary Ann worked as a team, Jerry did most of the fieldwork while Mary Ann kept everyone fed. She cooked many meals and enjoyed making homemade bread and noodles. In her later years, Mary Ann enjoyed watching her grandsons play baseball with the Spring Hill Chargers, she had a soft spot for holding and cuddling babies, and loved her pets, especially her dog, Lucy. The one thing that brought so much joy to Mary Ann was her grandchildren and great grandchildren; they truly brightened up her day.

She was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Spring Hill, Christian Women, and Catholic United Financial.

Survivors include her children, Gene Terres of Minneapolis, Bob (Jane) Terres of Spring Hill, Rick (Brenda) Terres of Spring Hill, and Sharon (Gary) Thelen of Freeport; 12 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren.
