Terri Kay Shand née Snyder, 66, of Windsor, CT., formerly of West Palm Beach, FL, passed away peacefully, in her sleep the morning of Tuesday January 9th 2018. She was born September of 1951 in Pittsburgh PA. She met her would be husband, John R. Shand, while attending Northshore High School in West Palm Beach, FL. In 1972, they married and embarked on a passionate and joy-filled 45 year marriage. Together, they raised six children: Jennifer Shand of West Palm Beach, FL; Craig Shand, his wife (Kristen), and their twin daughters (Madisen and Sloane), of Palm Beach Gardens, FL; Matthew and his wife (Jamie) of Granby, CT; Kathryn Whitmore and her children (Nathaniel and Alyssa) of Phoenix, AZ; Patrick Shand of Windsor, CT; and Andrew Shand of Windsor, CT. She attended Florida Atlantic University pursuing a degree in Psychology. After completing her Associate’s degree, Terri dedicated her life to educating and caring for her six children. In addition to her work with her family and home, she worked as a seamstress, assembled microprocessors, in retail, and operated her own small home-based business selling crafts. She had a passion for creating and spent many days knitting, crocheting, sewing, painting, and crafting. She was also educated and skilled in several culinary arts. Terri always put her family first, and in 2010, her husband became disabled. In lieu of a live-in nurse, she devoted herself to his daily care and treatment. She joyfully gave of herself her time and her love. She was quick to laugh and smile. She was even quicker to forgive. She was a light of pious compassion and love to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She was a gift and her light will not be forgotten. Services will be given in a private ceremony on Monday January 15th at St. Joseph’s Church in Poquonock, CT.
