Terry was born in Valley City, ND on August 28, 1944 to Dalton and Anne Petersen. She graduated from St. Catherine’s High School in Valley City, ND. Terry continued on to Sisters of St. Joseph School of Nursing of ND in Grand Forks, ND where she received her degree in Nursing. On August 6, 1966, she married Larry, her high school sweetheart.
