Terrie Crenshaw was born on April 10, 1056. She was the first-born daughter to Edmond Tucker, Sr. and Garnie Reasie Lee. Terrie was born and raised in San Diego, CA along with her five siblings.
Terrie attended Abraham Lincoln High School. After graduating high school, Terrie wore many hats and loved doing good for other people. Terrie worked at the San Diego Blood Bank then moved on to the Neighborhood House Association. Terrie helped many people, within the community, become first time home buyers. Terrie also helped homeowners who were near or in foreclosure status retain their homes by locating various alternatives and programs to help set up additional arrangements. From there she moved on to the City of San Diego and worked at the City Attorney’s office for fifteen years before she retired.
Terrie was loved by many and if you were lucky enough to know her you know she had an amazing aura that cannot be replaced. She was a loving, kind and generous mother to her children and to anyone else who needed a mother’s love. She was an amazingly, beautiful, smart and strong woman who put her children before anything.
Terrie enjoyed listening to her music while cooking, traveling around the US, watching movies and just having a good time with her loved ones. Terrie always enjoyed good conversation with friends and family and you knew who was talking by her signature phrase: “Okaaay!”
Terri leaves behind her parents, Edmond Tucker, Sr. and Garnie Reasie Lee; her three daughters, Jenee Branch, Kelly, and Kimberly Crenshaw; two granddaughters, Lauryn York and Zoey Sissac; and her partner of fifteen plus years with Robert Richeson. With her brother Edmond “Bo” Tucker, Jr. preceding her in death, she is also survived by her seven siblings, Roxanne Hanson, Rosalynd Martin, Mark Wilcox, Lynette Nooks-Addison, Dessaline Tucker, Nasser Tucker, Tara Tucker and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and good friends.
Terrie was called home on Thursday, June 14, 2018. She will be in good company as her late brother Bo, grandmother Lulubelle, and cousin Kim greet her with open arms. She will be remembered and missed by all, whose lives she touched during her lifetime.
