Terry Tierney:

To All Tri-State Members & Friends of Tri-State:

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of one of our own, Terry Tierney, on Friday, October 9, 2009. Beloved daughter of the late James and Theresa.  Terry was born in 1950 and loving sister of Denis Tierney, Maureen Tierney-Brennan, sister-in-law of John Brennan.  Also survived by her dear nephews John and James Brennan. 

Terry was a key member of TSWAA for close to twenty years.  While as member of the Board of Directors, she served as chairperson, vice-chairperson, treasurer and a member-at-large.  Terry also served for many years as a TSWAA official, and received her IPC certification in 2008.  On a national basis, she also served a term as Treasurer for Wheelchair Sports, USA and served as an official in a number of National Junior Disability Championships

Terry was a champion for the rights of the disabled athlete and she will be sorely missed by those who worked with her.   She was always ready and willing to “roll her sleeves up” in order to help our organization.  Her dedication to TSWAA and disabled sports is reflected in her being awarded both the Bob McShane and Legacy Awards.

As many of you already know, Terry was not just an official/administrator, she was a participative athlete.  Notably, she was a member of the 1999 Pan American Wheelchair Table Tennis Championships in Mexico City.  Terry also won a Team Bronze Medal  in doubles (along with Carolynne Bethka) at the 2003 US Open Paralympic Table Tennis Tournament in Colorado Springs.  She was a recipient of the 2007 George Chranewycz Memorial Award presented by the American Wheelchair Table Tennis Association (AWTTA). She competed in numerous nationals and regional competitions.
