MARLOW — On March 4, 2013, two days after turning a young 52, Teri Lin Burrus left her mortal toil to be with her Lord and Maker. Teri was a vibrant spark of life who believed in living in the moment. She was constantly accessorizing herself and those she loved. Whether it be herself, dogs or her life partner, Terry Hill; she believed we all must look our best to act our best.

Teri is survived by her two sons, Bryan David Akins and Mitchell Ray Burrus; grandson, Bryson Alexander Akins; brothers, David and Michael Burrus; mother, Sharon Kay Burrus; and grandfather, Col. Arthur Shaw.

The family will hold a memorial service in Marlow, Oklahoma. Local arrangements under the direction of Craddock Funeral Home.
