Obituary

Terry Ringer Monday, 52, of Milwaukee, passed away on September 11, 2023 in Cape Coral.

Terry Ringer Monday was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Harlene and Sammie Ringer on February 25, 1971. She went to school in New Berlin where she graduated from Eisenhower high school.

She loved working with children and was a preschool teacher and nanny for many years. Her smile and enthusiasm was infectious exciting a similar reaction in others around her. Besides her role in education, Terry was very creative and had many interesting adventures in her time here. Modeling in Paris, living on a sailboat in San Diego, being in an all-girls punk rock band while living in LA, working at the Telluride Ski Resort in Colorado, and living on a golf course in Palm Springs. Terry will be missed so much by so many whose lives were touched by her.

Terry Ringer Monday was preceded in death by Naida Callahan, Dave Callahan, Margaret Cordato, Jeanie, Joann, and Ronnie.

Terry Ringer Monday is survived by her life partner and best friend Jeff Lessard, their kitties Coco and Murphy, Terry’s sister Tammy VanderHeyden, brother-in-law James VanderHeyden and their two kids Nick and Madi, her mother Harlene Gorenc, and two fathers Sammie Ringer and Tony Gorenc.

Terry requested friends and family honor her in their own ways and remember the laughter and good times they had with her.

The family of Terry Ringer Monday wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Hope Hospice House of Cape Coral and Baldwin Brothers Funeral and Cremation Society.

    Terry Ringer was and will always be an inspiration!!!
    She once helped me to beat the ghosts in my house by telling me to a kick a coconut in my living room making an X with said coconut. It kinda helped with my haunting. But this was one of many exchanges with Terry that helped and she was too cool or not meant for this earth. Anybody that didn’t know or talked with Terry? They missed out.
    I’ll miss you, and the world turned knowing Cherry Bubbles helped it turn. Her Chairy bubbles tattoo confirmed her definite good status in the world. You’ll be missed and I like others, hope to see you again. Rest in peace.

    It is hard to put into words how incredible Terry was. She found humor and joy in the people and things that most of us overlooked or ignored. Her smile and energy took over a room. Her love for life was contagious. Having her by my side during the craziest and chaotic yet most important and defining part of my life shaped who I am today. She made me a better human being and saved me from myself. She made the world a brighter, better place and her legacy will live on in all of us. None of us can predict when it will be our turn to link back up with her, but I am certain she will have created a funky rumpus in the sky by the time we arrive. Love you Terry, stay punk.

    To the ultimate sweetheart couple, thank you. Everything our paths crossed my joy meter spiked. Great conversation,  fun, and laughter were guaranteed.  Even with a heavy heart at this solemn time, just a thought or memory of you two together,  forces a broad smile across this stoney face.   Terry is a special being. Her mere presence, her love of life, her intelligence, and her beauty,  are all absolute undeniable proof she was " just  visiting " this planet. Thany you Terry! We all love you!
