Teresa "Terri" Ann (Carney) Darrah

September 19, 1961 ~ June 5, 2021 (age 59)


On Saturday evening June 5th our dear mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, business owner, and choir director suddenly left us to be with our Lord.  Known for her radical generosity (numerous donations, countless hours of hairdressing for school plays, and Mum Queen’s Pageant), kind & caring heart, infectious, unforgettable laugh that would fill a room. She taught us how to have a positive outlook in life with her encouraging words, how to forgive and how to be generous. “Hairstylist: a wonderful person who touches more hearts than hair”.
Terri was preceded in death by her biological father Sherman Carney and leaves behind 2 amazing children: Janice Brewer living in Asheville, NC and Dustin (Andrea) Brewer living in Plainfield, IL along with immensely loved grandchildren Elliot, Addie and Ruby.

Mother and Father Barbara and Robert Helm. Sisters Pamela (Patrick) Carney Hale, their children, Ryan (Hannah) Hale, Mia (Mackenzie) Hale. Melissa (Will) Carney Roberts, their children Justin (Ashley) Roberts, 1st great nephew Caden, Brandon (Caitlin Trickett) Roberts, and Caleb Roberts.
Half siblings - John, Sara, Melinda and Joseph, Step Brother - Danny Helm
Her “work family” at Total Image Salon and Day Spa, countless aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and clients.

In the words of her beautiful daughter; “Terri was a deep seeding perennial of this community, roots as far and wide as her bellowing laugh may carry. Anyone who knew her, knew her heart, her voice, her passion, her deep care of everyone whom she loved and met. She was very loved and loved so very deeply.”
Every adjective in the book could be used to describe Terri. We will leave you with this; “live like there is no tomorrow, give everything you have, love to your fullest and laugh until you cry as Terri has done for 59 years with God at the center of it all.”
Proverbs 31:25 She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.
