Boynton, who was the love of Teri’s life.Teri and Ryan traveled between Massachusetts and Montana, deciding to settle down in Helena, Montana.

Teri was an old soul, a warrior, and a butterfly. She had a strong connection to her spirituality and her Native American heritage, as a proud member of the Little Shell Chippewa Cree Tribe. She believed that feathers, hawks, eagles, and butterflies were all messages from heaven. She often wrote verses close to her heart on rocks she had found, one of which being, “Let us love one another, for love comes from God. -John 4:7”. Teri herself had a very loving spirit that she shared openly with her friends and family.
Teri had many jobs over the course of her life, but most enjoyed working in the earth, surrounded by nature, growing, cultivating, and collecting every plant she could. She was extremely knowledgeable in her field.
Teri had many passions, along with her deep love and connection with nature, she deeply enjoyed her time spent with family and friends, knitting, crocheting, writing, coloring, and studying her Native American culture and history.
She is preceded in death by her father, Andrew Lee Sangray, mother, Marcia Kay Hagenbuch, her grandparents and a number of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Though Teri is gone too soon and deeply missed she is now free at last from her pain and suffering and has gone to an everlasting life where she will be free. Whether close together or far apart she will always be in our hearts.
“May your warrior spirit never be broken. May her suffering end and her journey back to no illness break free, sweet soul.” -Torrie Duke
