March 16, 1949 – July 20, 2020
Teresa (Terry) Diane Osborn, 71, of Friendswood, TX, passed away on Monday, July 20, 2020 after a hard-fought battle with an aggressive cancer. It would be wrong to say that Terry lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like.
Terry's life revolved around her family, especially her grandchildren, countless friends, her beloved pets, the City of Friendswood, and of course the great state of Texas. She loved sports of every kind and was an avid supporter of the Houston Texans, particularly JJ Watt, and her beloved Texas A&M Aggies, both in good times and bad. She cared deeply for our service men and woman and took special joy in advocating for our veterans, as she had great respect and admiration for their service and sacrifice to our country.
Terry is survived by her brother, Kenneth R. Phillips and wife Peggy of Pearland, TX; sister, Theresa Kirsch of Clear Lake, TX; daughter, Kelley C. Wickizer and husband Karl of McCook, NE; daughter, Karen D. Osborn of Chicago, IL; grandchildren, Julia Schaefer and husband Patrick of Montgomery, TX; Chelsea Johnson and husband Kyle of McCook, NE; Kiley Mikal Stewart of Pearland, TX; Casey Wickizer and wife Christina of McCook, NE; Victoria Wickizer of McCook, NE; great grandchildren, Abigail and Jacob Taylor, Aspen and Wyatt Johnson, and Cooper Wickizer; and several nieces and nephews including Ross Phillips and wife Dahlia; Ryan Philips and wife Angela; Leslie Kirsch who she loved dearly; and many other relatives and cherished friends.
Our family would like to extend a special thank you to her STAR and AMS family and friends, with a personal thank you to Lisa Conn, Danny Johnson, Betty Duncan, Michael Meader, and Travis Crippen, who reminded her each day that she was loved through countless phone calls, beautiful flower arrangements, numerous cards and endless laughs. We also would like to thank Darrell Wandell, Jeannie Jones, Timi Forrest, Karen Teague, and many others for their lifelong friendships and their endless support and care the last seven months.
A visitation and funeral service for Terry will be held Friday, July 24, 2020 at Jeter Memorial Funeral Home Chapel, 311 N. Friendswood Dr., Friendswood, Texas 77546. The visitation will be held from 12:00 to 2:00 pm with the service beginning at 2:00 pm with Rev. Reggie Clemons officiating. Interment will follow at Forest Park East Cemetery in Webster, TX.
