AUBURN | Theresa M. “Terry” (Berry) Cory Sullivan, 60, of Auburn, passed away peacefully Thursday evening, March 21, 2019, at Auburn Community Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Theresa was a lifelong resident of Auburn, the daughter of the late Gerald Sr. and Mildred (Day) Berry. She graduated from Auburn High School in 1977, and went on to become an L.P.N. She was employed for several years by Auburn Memorial Hospital, Loretto, and the former Cayuga County Nursing Home. Music brought a lot of happiness to Theresa’s life, and she enjoyed listening to many different styles of music. She truly enjoyed being in the company of others. One of Theresa’s greatest joys in life was being a grandmother, and she was affectionately called “Gramma T.” Her beautiful smile, sense of style, endearing personality, and pink hair will always be treasured and truly never forgotten.
