February 27, 1982 - July 8, 2021
Theresa Marie “Terry” McGhie, age 39, of Wilmington, passed away unexpectedly in her sleep on Thursday, July 8, 2021.
Born in Philadelphia, PA on February 27, 1982, she was a daughter of James Thomas McGhie and Edith Geraldine (Foy) McGhie. Terry was a resident of Wilmington for the last 27 years. She was known as the life of the party, kind, friendly, and talkative to anyone around. Terry always helped others in need whenever she could, especially her sister with her children. She was an amazing aunt and absolutely loved her daughters whom she spent quality time with whenever she could. She especially enjoyed spending time at Crystal Beach with her girls and their aunt Diane. Terry was a graduate of the University of Delaware, but fulfilled her passion of working in the food industry where she could be a social butterfly. Most recently she worked in the food and nutrition department in the Christina School District where she thoroughly enjoyed serving meals to school aged children. Terry will be truly missed and never forgotten by her loving family and friends.
In addition to her parents, Terry is survived by her two daughters, Falynne (9) and Morgan (4); sister, Colleen McGhie (Kelly); niece, Leah; nephews, Shane and Robert; significant other and father to her children, Dale Murphy; and many other adoring family and friends.
