Terry Frye Walsh was born in Casper, Wyoming on March 15, 1947. She had a happy childhood in Mills, WY with her mother, Irene Lichte Frye, father, Donald Frye, and sisters, Pat, Carol and Rita. She graduated from Natrona County High School.
In 1963, she married Jon Hill and they had two children, Orville Don (Odie) and Tara Gene. Unfortunately, the marriage did not last.
In 1980, Terry met and married the love of her life, Michael Alan Walsh. With Alan she acquired two stepchildren, Rick and Jacqueline (Jackie.) Together, Terry and Alan traveled the country working as heavy equipment operators. During this time, they met and became lifelong friends with G.T. and Ruth Ann Connell.
In 2005, they retired and moved to Golden Shores, AZ. Their life together was filled with family, friends and fun.
After Alan’s passing in 2018, Terry remained in Golden Shores where she was a loved and respected member of the community. She served on the Civic Association Board of Directors and the Volunteers for the Senior Nutrition program. She was also a loyal friend, a great cook, an avid game player, a pretty good singer and a kind and generous person.
