It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our beloved, Terrylene Rose Many Heads on Sunday, June 5, 2022, in Calgary, AB at the age of 64 years. As many know her as Terry; she was a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, cousin, niece, and a friend to many.

Terry enjoyed travelling to many places with her husband and family. She enjoyed golfing, volunteering for the annual Siksika Rodeo Association event, berry-picking, playing a game of solitaire, word puzzles, and connecting with family and friends through Facebook, and playing at the casino. Terry made her Cursillo in 1984 with her theme being “Isaiah 49” and when she could, she enjoyed volunteering for the annual Cursillo held in Siksika.
