WESOLOWSKY, Terry Beth (nee Shannon) 1961 - 2003 It is with great sadness and sorrow that Brian, Amy and Taylor Wesolowsky announce the death of their wife and mother, Terry. She died at Foothills Hospital on February 2, 2003 after a yearlong struggle with leukemia. Born in Minnesota, her family moved to Athabasca, AB in 1968 and subsequently to Peace River, AB. She graduated from Peace River High and attended UBC in Vancouver, B.C. Terry joined the Alberta Forest Service where she met Brian while working in the Whitecourt Forestry office. They were married November 7, 1987 and developed a forestry consulting business from their home in Fox Creek, AB; and later Edson, Alberta. Terry is survived by her loving husband and children Amy and Taylor; her parents Phyllis and John Shannon of Elma, WA; sister Stacey Shannon and partner Susan Wells of Toronto; and brother Michael (Louise) Shannon of NSW, Australia; Brian's parents Grace and Len Wesolowsky of Rocky Mountain House, AB; sister Brenda of Red Deer, AB; and brother Larry(Sheila) of Caroline, AB; and numerous other close friends and relatives. Terry had a passionate desire for everyone to become a blood donor to replace the many blood and platelet transfusions received during her treatment. The family wishes any other bequest be made to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton or the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Foothills Hospital in Calgary, or the Canadian Leukemia Society. Terry was cremated in Calgary and the family will celebrate her life with an open house at the Edson Canadian Legion Hall from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 8, 2003.
