Terrilyn Sager

Terrie was born June 7, 1943, in Seattle, the daughter of Harold (Dale) and Theodora (Rice) Fox. She graduated from high school in Chico, California. On Nov. 10, 1972, she was united in marriage to Bill Sager at The Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa.

Terrie spent most of her life in Albert Lea as a stay at home mother of three children. She was a member of Grace Lutheran Church, and in her free time enjoyed her beloved pet dog, Lucy. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, and a caring woman of great strength and inspiration. She took great pride in the perfection of her home, her yard and her fashion — and especially spending time with family and her grandchildren.
