Theresa “Terry” Ann Carlson passed away peacefully in her home on July 5, 2019, surrounded by her family. Terry was born on August 12, 1960, in Seldovia, Alaska to Jimmy and Evelyn Carlough. She became a mother in 1982, welcoming her first child Jenny Marie (Hammond). In 1988, Terry married the love of her life, Daniel Craig Carlson; the man with whom she shared a life and eternal love with. Danny and Terry later welcomed son Craig James, and daughters Heather Ann and Rebecca Lynn.
Terry was a strong, caring, loving, selfless, talented and kindhearted woman. She could be found cheering for her grandchildren on the sidelines of their soccer and basketball games, out on the water fishing with Danny, gardening, and spending time with her family. Terry was many things in this life - a best friend, a sister, a daughter, and a wife - but nothing made her beam with pride more than being a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She treasured her family and embraced every moment with them; leaving behind beautiful and everlasting memories. She will be missed beyond measure.
Terry is survived by her beloved husband Danny; her four children Jenny, Craig, Heather and Rebecca; her nine grandchildren Amber Rose, James Thomas, Nathan Michael, Kaiden Daniel, Kyle James, Savannah Leigh, Ariannah Mae, Greyson William, Cierra Billie Lynn; her great-grandson Gibson William Haze; her son-in-law Billy Hammond; her father Jimmy Carlough; and her siblings. Proceeding her in death is her mother Evelyn Carlough.
A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, July 9 at 1 pm at the Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church. A gathering celebrating her life will be held at the Kodiak Funeral Chapel, the family asks attendees to bring a dish and a story to share. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be sent to Danny Carlson at PO Box 3030, Kodiak, AK, 99615.
