Anne LaFaun Redford Terry
Friends and Schoolmates,
I could not in good conscience fail to make this Memorial Edition of the NNHS Newsletter. Anne Redford Terry, Class of 1958, passed away unexpectedly in Newport News on Wednesday, March 19, 2008.
From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 03/28/08 - "NNHS1958 - ..... lost one":
.....Unfortunately, we also lost another classmate on 3/19/08. Anne Redford Terry died suddenly and unexpectedly from an aneurysm in the brain.
Anne had requested no obituary or formal funeral rites. There was a memorial service at Weymouth Funeral Home at 5pm on Tuesday, 3/25/08.
Thank you for letting us know, Joe.
From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 04/01/08 - "Anne Redford Terry, NNHS58 - a journey revealed":
Did you know Anne Redford? I had to look up her picture in the Anchor. It was the picture of a good-natured elf.
I went to the memorial service, expecting to be one of a few.
The place was packed with friends and neighbors, many who gave moving eulogies. She was very much a giver, care-taker, friend of all she touched.
She was described as a self-effacing introvert who lived to help people.
She was known as the Matriarch and Mayor of Palen Avenue, a beautiful, tree lined street of Hilton Village.
Her husband died of cancer in 1981. She was almost completely house-bound from 2000-05 taking care of her mother and sister, both who battled cancer.
She had been striving to expand her personal boundaries for a couple of years. Getting more involved in activities outside the house. Anne often took friends to her favorite lunch haunts, Monty's Penguin and the Port Arthur.
For years, Anne was involved with "Relay for Life", the fundraiser for cancer research. She was a long-time friend of Veronica Weymouth, who discovered she had breast cancer a couple weeks after agreeing to chair this years "Relay for Life". Anne really stepped up to provide support for Veronica as she went through all the rigors of treatment for breast cancer.
As usual, an interesting journey that those outside of a small circle of friends and neighbors were completely unaware.
Take Care of yourself and do good...
Thank you so much, Joe.

Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol

Morning Has Broken
Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic
1. Morning has broken like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!
2. Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.
3. Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation; praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation of the new day!
