Theresa (Terri) M. Meyers, of Highland Mills, NY passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on January 6, 2021 at the age of 78. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, and a proud and tender grandmother.

The daughter of the late William H. Holmes, Sr. and Frances M. (Edel) Holmes, Theresa was born on February 18, 1942 in Chestnut Hill, PA.

Terri worked tirelessly in creating and keeping a warm and happy home for her family, as well as working as an Insurance Agent for State Farm Insurance in Monroe and Goshen, NY, prior to retiring.

She was a woman of deep faith and an active member of Grace Baptist Church in Highland Falls, NY.
