Romae Anderson Terry Rasmussen

8/25/1937 ~ 7/4/2022

Our beautiful Mom, Nana, sister, and friend, left this earthly life early in the morning July 4, 2022.
Romae Anderson Terry Rasmussen was born August 25, 1937 in Murray, Utah to Samuel Smith and Lois Wanda Osborne Anderson. She married Darce Van Terry later divorced. She was blessed with two children, Colleen (Gerald) Brockbank and Brian Van Terry (deceased). She married Ray Vern Rasmussen (deceased). Her grandchildren are Darci Jo (Jed) Allred, Jay Lynn Brockbank, Thelma Irene (Mike) Fonger. Great grandchildren Braxton, Addyson, Kaitlyn Romae, Samantha, Logan, Dillon and baby Vivian coming in October.
Brothers and sister; Jay Anderson (deceased), Larry (Shirley) Anderson, Karen Vickery, Daryl Anderson. Numerous step children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and a couple of great, great grandchildren.
She loved her yards and like to see them bloom. She would spend endless hours designing, planting and taking care of her flower gardens wherever she lived. She loved to get starts and seeds wherever she went, plant them and watch for the resulting flowers. It was very hard on her later in life when she could no longer be with her flowers. She crocheted, she made afghans for each of her grandchildren and step grandchildren when they graduated from high school. She had various hobbies throughout her life, she was always busy doing something, most recently keeping in touch with family and friends on her iPad and maybe a few books and games.
Romae was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. One of her happiest days was when she went to the Idaho Falls Temple and received her endowments.
She loved to travel, she wanted to be a gypsy and travel and visit her many friends. This begins her last journey.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

    We loved living next door to Romae in Burley. She was kind, welcoming, and the best neighbor we could have asked for. We are forever grateful for the special relationship she had with our daughter, Claire. Claire loved Romae and visited her often. Romae always made her feel special and needed. She always let Claire help her to exercise Rocket by tossing balls in the yard to fetch. We have missed her since she moved away, but glad she was able to be closer to family.

    Romae, you are loved and missed by the Wilson Family. Thank you for everything.

    Being related I had heard the name Romae for decades. I was privileged to actually meet and get to know Romae several years ago. What a beautiful sweet soul. My life has been enriched knowing you. Darci, I know where your goodness comes from! ❤️❤️❤️
