August 9, 1951 ~ August 22, 2014
Terri was a fireball of energy -described by her neighbors, family and friends alike as full of life, kind. She created community everywhere she went. With a generous heart, she mentored many new voices and producers who have added their talents to the Cabaret and video scenes in DC. She was an avid Atudiant francais. She also enjoyed giving Astrology and Tarot readings.
Suddenly, Terri left this world on Friday, August 22 with her sister, Barbara, by her side. As her niece Carey said, she went quickly, softly and quietly - not exactly in character for Terri! Her brothers Jim and Michael and her sister Barbara deeply miss her. Her nieces and nephews Jason, Carey, Lisa, Chase, Hannah, Cody and her many friends will remember her joi de vivre.
Terri was born in Buffalo, New York, when she was 9 her family moved to Arizona. Throughout High School Terri starred in the school musical and graduated Valedictorian of her class. She attended Catholic University, where she received both BA and MA degrees in Theater.
She is predeceased by her parents John and Martha (Scholer) Allen.
