Lake Placid News

Terri L. Manley, 69, of 17 Howard Heights Lane in Jay, died peacefully in her home on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016.

She was born on Dec. 23, 1946 to Gilbert and Esther (Slater) Manley in Keene Valley. She joined her big sisters, Harriet and Sandy and was the perfect completion to the Manley family.

Terri had a long career working as an accountant for many local businesses and organizations. During retirement she enjoyed her summers at Iroquois Campground in Peru and wintering in Largo, Fla., along with many hobbies too numerous to list. She made many friends in both places even though her time in both places was too short.

Although her family was small, Terri had an abundance of friends that she considered to be family. Terri was greatly loved by all who knew her, and she will be greatly missed.

Terri is survived by her daughters Rebecca Trumbull of Seattle, Wash. and Stephanie Lacy (and husband Mark) of Jay; and her grandchildren Tyler Stevens and Charlie and Breanna Lacy; her sister Sandra Lessard of Lake Placid; her nieces Michelle (Dubay) Hamilton (and husband Tom) of Morrisonville and Tari Hoekel (and husband Boyd) of Houston, Texas; her great-nephews Matthew and Michael Hamilton and William and Christopher Hoekel; her niece Jennifer Miller, who was one of her many caregivers; and her special friends, Patti Fitz-Gerald and Dianne Gronlund.

Terri was pre-deceased by her parents, and her sister Harriet Dubay.

Calling hours will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14 at the Thwaits- Zaumetzer Funeral Home in AuSable Forks. A celebration of her life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Jay Baptist Church.

In lieu of flowers, it was Terri's wish that donations in her memory be made to the American Legion Post 504, 11 McCrea St., AuSable Forks or the FitzPatrick Cancer Center, 75 Beekman St., Plattsburgh.
