Oh my, I just happened to "Google" Terri Sayward, found her & lost her all at the same time! Terri is one of the reasons I was able to receive my R.N. degree as a young grandmother in May, 1984. She allowed me to stay in her tiny apartment in Ludington, MI while we attended West Shore Community College in Scottville for our 1st semester that year. She & I shared so much together & I will always be grateful to her for her generosity. The picture of her in her obituary really does her justice.

We will miss Terri very much! She was a very kind, and loving Christian woman. Our hearts go out to her family and friends. She is in heaven dancing with Jesus and we will get to see her again one day. Lots of love from Jeff, Leanne and Troy Bloede, and Christa Back.

Terri, you were truly an Angel sent from above. You were a great and loving wife to my brother Brian, and a most wonderful Mother to Sarah. You will be remembered by the many people who were blessed to have known you. Rest in Peace
