Terrie Rider Obituary

Terrie Lee Rider 8/29/1964 - 2/5/2024

      Heaven received a beautiful and ferocious angel. Terrie passed away peacefully at her home with her family at her bedside after a brief battle with neuroendocrine cancer.

     Terrie was born in Twin Falls in 1964 and grew up in Gooding Idaho. Terrie graduated from Gooding High School in 1983. Terrie packed laughter and pranks into every day. Terrie also lived a life of service starting at Green Acres Care Center caring for developmentally delayed children. This is where she met her future husband Don and they were married in 1986. 

     Terrie wore many hats during her life but they all involved being of service. In 1995, Terrie started her own business, Terrie’s Pampered Seniors providing manicures and pedicures for homebound seniors. Terrie truly loved providing this service and she served tirelessly for 20 years. Terrie also managed Intermountain Martial Arts with her husband Don teaching children and families Tae Kwon Do. Terrie continued her dedication to service working as a Paraeducator at Kimberly Middle and High School. 

     In 2020, Terrie and Don began a 4-year travel-nurse adventure visiting several states from the Dakota’s to Texas. Terrie had a passion for fishing and Don and Terrie would purchase a fishing license in each state they were in. Terrie was able to check deep sea fishing off of her bucket list in September 2023 with her dear friends T-Rob and Joyce at Ilwaco Washington. With Don at her side, Terrie landed a 45-pound halibut.

     Terrie is survived by: her husband – Don; son - Brandon Rider (Cheyene); her 4 daughters - Ashlee Rider, Cheyene Rider, Kelly Rider, Florida Hollon; grandsons - Casey, Dawson and Bentley; mother - Carol Williams; sister - Karrie Giles; brothers - Richard Willams and Phillip (Nancy) Williams; and numerous nieces and nephews.

     Terrie was preceded in death by: her father - Richard Williams; and her son - Derek Rider.

     The family wishes to express their appreciation for the compassionate and loving care Terrie received from her Hospice Visions team, Cindy, Sue, Jasmine, Tonya and Alice.

     A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2024 at 11:00 am at North Valley Academy 906 Main Street, Gooding Idaho 83330. A potluck will follow the celebration of life.

     Cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel.
