JONESPORT – Terry L. Alley, 57, of Jonesport, passed away on Aug. 1, 2004, at her home in Mason Bay, surrounded by her family after a hard fought six-year battle with breast cancer. Terry was born on April 20, 1947, in Jonesport, at the home of her grandparents, Robert E. and Geraldine M. Church, the daughter of Millard P. Crowley Jr. and Ruth (Church) Crowley. Terry graduated from Jonesport High School, Class of 1965, and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in education from the University of Maine at Machias in 1970. She taught English and reading for many years in the Jonesport and Machias school systems, until her illness forced her to retire in 2000. Terry had many fond memories of the students she taught over the years, and would often share a story with her family when she would run into one of her old students, or see one of their achievements in the newspaper. Terry loved Sandy River Beach and was a fixture there during the summers, sharing good memories with her friends, children and her grandchildren. She often said she would rather be at Sandy River Beach than anywhere else on Earth. In addition to her parents, Terry is survived by her loving husband of 37 years, Darrell Alley; her daughter and son-in-law, Taryn and David Finlay of East Machias; a son, Derek Alley of Jonesport; and a son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Kelly Alley of Livermore; and by her beloved grandchildren, Alexander and Jordan Finlay, and Adrienne and Lucas Alley. She is also survived by her brothers, Bruce Crowley and his wife, Janet, and Steven Crowley and his wife, Cathy, all of Jonesport. At Terry’s request, the family will be having a private memorial service at a later date. Memorial donations in Terry’s name can be sent to The Choose Life Foundation, P.O. Box 107, Addison, ME 04606. The Choose Life Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Terry’s friend and fellow teacher Beth C. Wright of Addison, dedicated to improving and enhancing the lives of cancer patients by providing literature and information that offer inspiration and hope.
