Terrie Anne (Yourchuck) Davenport of Balsam Lake, Wisconsin died Saturday, July 6, 2019 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester surrounded by her family after a long second battle with cancer.
She was born in Baldwin, WI to Dean and Anne (Sherrard) Yourchuck, Sr. on November 8, 1961 and grew up in Luck. She graduated from Unity High School in 1981 and joined the United States Airforce where she became a diesel engine mechanic for front line airfield firefighting equipment. Terrie Anne served in Spokane, WA where she met her former husband Gary Davenport and had twin daughters Jeserae and Shireen. They were later stationed in England where she finished her enlistment. After returning to the United States, for a brief time they lived just north of Salt Lake City, Utah near his hometown where Joshua was born. They then returned to Luck, Wisconsin to raise their children in the Unity School district.
Terrie Anne loved cooking, fishing, squirrel hunting, and swimming. She adored her family and loved being with friends. Her bright eyes and smile were contagious. She spent her summers gardening and canning with her parents.
Terrie Anne battled the most aggressive type of Thyroid cancer which was complicated by the onset of Graves Disease. She participated in two different experimental drug programs, which returned her eyesight and her independence which she cherished so much. She hoped with the success of her treatment of Grave Disease, others would benefit sooner; helping to cure the cancer.
Terrie Anne is survived by her children, Jeserae (Matt) Ungaro and Joshua Davenport, Isabella Olsen and Sammi Davenport, grandchildren Nathan, Amaya, Willow and Violet, parents Dean and Anne Yourchuck, Sr, siblings Dean (Helen) Yourchuck, Jr, Vern (Barb) Yourchuck, Jeni (Tim) Wentz, many nieces and nephews as well as aunts, uncles and cousins with their families.
Terrie Anne was preceded in death by daughter Shireen Davenport, grandparents Robert and Doreen Sherrard, Mike and Vivian Yourchuck.
