On September 20, 1986 she married Lonny Brian Loeschke. They lived in Brooklyn Park for many years before moving to their country home in Zimmerman. Terri loved her home and enjoyed decorating their home. She enjoyed spending time in the kitchen, baking, canning, and making lefse. She and Lonny enjoyed traveling, camping, their annual trip to the lighthouse bed and breakfast, and spending time with family and their dogs, Cooper and Bella.
Terri loved her life with Lonny. She enjoyed the glow of a sunrise, the warmth of a summer day or the coziness of a snowstorm in front of the fireplace. Hot chocolate and coffee were always part of these special times together, and they never took the daily blessings such as these for granted.
Terri and Lonny were thrilled to have Justin join their family in the fall of 2009. In time they also added their daughter in law, Melissa and granddaughter, Olivia to their family as well as their dogs, Cooper and Bella.
Terri and Lonny developed a strong faith together in their 30+ years of marriage. They both cherished their church family of Freshwater United Methodist church in Zimmerman, MN.
She is survived by her husband Lonny Loeschke, son Justin and his wife Melissa, and granddaughter, Olivia Loeschke of Montecello, Minnesota. Her parents LeRoy and Jocile Olson of Montevideo, her sisters Pamela (and Edward) Delf of Montevideo MN and Lisa (and Mark) Willand of Dawson MN. She is also survived by her mother-in-law Lucy Venegas of Lakeville Minnesota and her father-in-law Arlyn and Barb Loeschke of Big Stone South Dakota.
