Terry Porter
Salina, Utah

Our beloved wife, mother, sister and friend Terry Lynn Porter passed away January 3, 2024 in Centerfield, after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.  
Terry was born May 9, 1950, in Coalville, to Curt and Luella Ellingford.   She graduated from Evanston High School in 1968 and briefly attended college in Salt Lake City, where she studied to become a dental hygienist.  However, Terry’s true calling was as a homemaker.  She married Darrell Porter, her high school sweetheart on January 4, 1969 in Evanston, Wyoming.  Terry took great pride in creating a warm and loving home for her family. Her home was always clean and tidy, and her husband and children never lacked for clean clothes or a delicious home-cooked meal.  
Terry was a devout Christian woman whose faith in the Lord never wavered, even in the face of health challenges. Her family takes solace in knowing that she is now rejoicing in heaven with her Heavenly Father.
Terry is survived by her beloved husband; children:  Ryan (Torrie) Porter, Lisa (Mike) Crane, and NiCole (Ron) Bayless; 7 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
Terry is preceded in death by her parents; sisters: Kathy Aaron, Linda Porter; nieces and nephews: Dannielle Aaron, Melissa Porter, Mark and Justin Porter.  
Terry will be deeply missed by all who loved her. Her memory will forever be treasured in their hearts.
Cremation at the Magleby Mortuary Cremation Center. Memorial services at a later date.  Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Online guestbook at
