Terry D'Aria Obituary

Terry Ann D’Aria of St. James, Missouri passed away Wednesday, January 24, 2024 at Cedar Pointe in Rolla, Missouri. She was 70 years of age.

Terry, the daughter of Earl and Revanell (Fuson) Garman, was born December 18, 1953 in Vinita, Oklahoma. She was united in marriage to Dorian D’Aria on November 15, 1980 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Terry is survived by her husband, Dorian of St. James, Missouri; son, Justin D’Aria and wife, Emily of St. James, Missouri; sister, Jan Rice and husband, Jim of Tulsa, Oklahoma; nine grandchildren: Joshua, Jezreel, Charis, Zoe, Josiah, Hope, Destiny, Niko, and Felicity.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Lee Earl Garman.

Terry was so delightful and kind to everyone that she met. No one was a stranger in her eyes. She met so many people through her business, her service at church, and her community work. Although she had many responsibilities to carry out, she always had time to chat, to laugh, and to pray, if needed. She made friends in every endeavor. Terry was a loving and supportive wife, mother, and grandmother. Her favorite thing was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She and Dorian worked together on many church and community projects. She owned and operated Integrity Business Services since 1996 where she worked alongside her son for several years. She liked crafts and collecting. Among her collections were Swarovski crystal characters, Noah’s Ark figurines, and anything with Baby Yoda from Star Wars. She loved hearing her grandchildren telling her “Yoda best Nana!” Terry enjoyed watching movies with family while eating popcorn and pickles. She looked forward to family vacations to Branson and jet skiing on Table Rock Lake. She was young and adventurous at heart.

She built her life and her family’s life around her love for God. She even considered her small business more as a ministry to serve the local community.
