Chesapeake—Our beautiful mother, Terri Jean Koenig, 62, went home to be with her Lord on May 18, 2022, with her family and friends surrounding her in love.

Terri was born in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin on April 4, 1960, to Audrey and William. Her main goal in life was to raise a family and she excelled and fulfilled it beyond expectation as evidenced by her children and grandchildren. Terri was the most loving soul you could meet and when you spent a few minutes with her, your life was instantly better. She was kind, generous, uplifting, and funny, even when she did not understand the joke! She had an affinity for making people happy with her smile and bubbly personality, and her laughter was contagious. Terri loved her family and friends fiercely and always filled her home or other homes with warmth and happiness.

Terri enjoyed blessing those around her by cooking for them, whether it was her famous lemon bars or some other specialty that her family and friends came to know. She enjoyed watching football, specifically the Green Bay Packers. Terri was known to shop for the best bargain around town and would drive to every store she could to find one. She loved to play board games with her grandchildren, continuing the family tradition she started with her children when they were young.

Terri was a member of Freedom Fellowship Church and loved worshiping the Lord with her friends. She was especially fond of worship music.

Left to cherish her memory are her loving children, Amy (Tomer) Yashaev of Norfolk, Sarah (Andrew) Wyatt of Chesapeake, and Christopher (Kristen) Koenig of Norfolk; father, William F. Miller of Wausau, Wisc.; siblings, William “Billy” Miller of Germany, John, Mark and Timothy Miller of Wausau, Wisc., Constance Ledford of MN, and Dan Johnson of Wisc.; grandchildren, Xander, Geoffrey, Avi, Liam, Andrew II, Sawyer, Kadence, Sierra, Aiden and Preston; and countless other family and friends.

She is predeceased by her loving mother, Audrey, her cherished daughter, Jennifer, and her beloved Yorkie, Hummer.

Her family received visitors at Altmeyer Funeral Home, Chesapeake. A celebration of life service immediately followed. Committal services were held at Chesapeake Memorial Garden. Express condolences to the family at www.altmeyerfh.com.
