Jeanne Eckley Terry

April 5, 1957 –– April 19, 2017

Our Sweet Jeanne went home to heaven after a valiant battle with cancer.

She was born in Tacoma, Wash., and moved with her family to Charleston, S.C. In grade school she moved to Enterprise and graduated from Enterprise High School. Then she attended Eastern Oregon State for a time.

She married her sweetheart Paul Terry and moved to Elgin, Ore., to raise her family. She later moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming, and about a year ago moved to Irrigon, Ore. Jeanne is proceeded in death by her father Wayne Eckley and her son Jason Terry. She is survived by her husband Paul Terry of Irrigon, son Clifton Terry and grandson Mason Terry of Cheyenne, mother Patricia Eckley of Burns, Ore., sister Julie (John) Dalton Ontario, Ore., brother Wayne Eckley Nyssa, Ore. and sister Bonnie Rassmussen of Burns as well as many other family, cousins and friends.

In her younger days, Jeanne and Paul spent time square dancing. She enjoyed fishing trips on their pontoon boat and loved traveling in their motor home. After moving to Irrigon, Jeanne enjoyed Zumba and pickle ball. She worked as a secretary and bookkeeper for the family business. Jeanne will be missed by all who knew her.

Per her wishes, there will be no formal services.

A small family gathering and celebration of her life was held April 29.
