Terry Menees

Feb. 6, 1948 — Oct. 30, 2013

Terry Ann Menees, born Feb. 6, 1948, died Oct. 30, 2013. She survived breast cancer, but lost a year-long battle with leukemia. During her last illness she was cared for by her longtime companion, John Glenn, with the help of her friend, Christi Dean, and her “sisters,” Diane Graham and Beth Harney.

Terry is survived by her mother, Marjorie Diltz; her sons, Brian and Brent; and her granddaughter, Audrey. She is also survived by brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews in both the Hodges and Diltz families. She was born in Redlands, Calif., and lived in many California locations, as her father, Dick Diltz, was an arson investigator for the California Department of Forestry. She graduated from Monterey High School. She moved from Salinas, Calif., to El Dorado County in 1976.

Terry worked for Pacific Bell as an operator in Salinas and then as a construction supply manager in Placerville until her retirement after 28 years with Pacific Bell, in 1994. After retirement, she provided in-home care for many people and did business was TAM’s Professional Services.

Terry was always willing to help others in need. She devoted the last two years of her life to caring for her mother. She also devoted a lot of time to volunteer work, including El Dorado County Search and Rescue in the Mounted and Management Units, Chair of the El Dorado County Mental Health Council, and President of the local NAMI chapter.

Besides her love for her family, Terry loved her dogs and horses. She especially enjoyed endurance riding. She touched the lives of all who knew her. Her beautiful smile will be greatly missed.

Her family held a private memorial service.

    My sincere sympathy to John, her family and friends. She was always such a happy person to be around and one of the people that I missed when I retired from "Ma Bell".
