Lottie Marie Terry

June 5, 1961 – February 24, 2020

Lottie Marie Terry of College Station, Texas passed away on Monday, February 24, 2020 in Bryan, Texas after a strenuous 26 year-long fight against breast cancer.

Lottie was born in Brenham, Texas in the year of 1961 and was an avid gardener from a young age. From her childhood, Lottie was a devote catholic. She was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith and later proceeded to be married in the Catholic faith as well. She graduated Brenham high school in 1979 and met the love of her life that same year at the Washington County Fair at the dance. They married the year of 1983 at St. Mary’s Catholic church in Brenham.

She was employed at the Baylor Scott & White clinic in Brenham formerly known as the Brenham clinic in the medical records department. She was also employed at Hargrove dental and Dr. Gordon Pratt’s office in Bryan. She then retired from these formal job titles to become the best housewife in town with the arrival of her first son in January of 1990. John and Lottie then welcomed the birth of two more sons in December of 1991 and January of 1994. As a housewife and mother, Lottie spent most of her time tending to her wildflowers, making her famous chicken and dumplings, and driving her sons to and from all of their football practices and games as well as attending and, of course, recording quite a few of them. Her love of football extended past her son’s games and straight into the heart of the Texas Longhorn’s various sports programs. She also dedicated her time to teaching religious classes at St. Anthony’s Catholic church.

Her passion for life was driven directly through her family’s aspirations and hobbies. Her fondest nickname, Grannie Sweetpea, was given to her by her grandchildren whom she adored spending time with. Lottie was what you would describe as a people person. She would get to know every single person she met. Lottie will be missed by those who’s hearts she touched and those who held her close to them.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Stefanie Jankowiak Jaster and Lonnie Jaster of Brenham; and her parents in-law, Dorothy and John Terry of Caldwell.

She is survived by her husband of 37 years, John Terry; her sons, Bradley Terry (Christina), Christopher Terry, and Aaron Terry; grandchildren, Ashton Terry and Adaline Terry; her siblings, Frank Jaster and Vickie Haack (Gary); brother in-law, Charles Terry (Donna); sister in-law, Beverly Terry (Rafie McCullar); nieces, Rachel Bellinger (Joe), Stefanie Jaster, Layla Terry and Sydney Haack; nephews, John Charles Terry, Harrison Haack, Micah Jaster, Warren Jaster; and a host of loving family and friends.

A memorial service is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at 2:30 pm at Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers of Bryan-College Station with a reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages others to make donations to Hospice Brazos Valley or any charity of their choice.

  1. I remember Lottie well. We taught religious education classes together at St. Anthony Catholic Church and she had the biggest heart for the children. She always provided them with a healthy snack, knowing that they were probably hungry after school and didn’t get a chance to eat before attending class. She had such a gentle nature and was always willing to help and always encouraging everyone around her. She was a great blessing to those she met. My heart goes out to her family.

  2. My deepest condolences. I have not seen her in years but she left an incredible mark on me when I met her for the very first time. That smile that beautiful smile. She always was the most warm and friendly! Rest in sweet peace Lottie! Lord bring peace to her family during this difficult time.

  3. Buddy and family, just a note to say that our thoughts are with you. It was always so good to see you and Lottie at Saturday Mass in Caldwell. I know she was a dedicated christian catholic lady. With all of her illness, we are so proud of you taking care of her and yourself. Donna and I have both remarked that if one of us has an illness like she did, that we would take care of the other like you, Buddy, have done. Our prayers are for you and your sons and families.

  4. Went to St. Mary’s Catholic School with Lottie till it closed. We then went to the public schools in Brenham. Lottie was always a really nice, friendly person. Hadn’t seen her probably, since we graduated from Brenham High School. So sorry to hear about her passing. Rest in peace, Lottie.

  5. We are so sorry to hear about Lottie. Remember that she is not gone, just away. God has called her home to be with him. God bless and keep you all during this time of sorrow.

  6. Sorry to hear about her passing, I remember how friendly she always was, and her beautiful smile. My thoughts and prayers go out the family.

  7. I will always remember Lottie as a sweet, loving and kind person. I remember having a conversation with her at the last Jaster Reunion. Even though she looked so frail she had such a positive outlook on life. Lottie fought long and hard to overcome the cancer but I guess somethings are not to be. I am sure she has a special place in heaven. May GOD give you his peace and strength.

    My sincere sympathy,
    Bette Hurta
