Terri Felton

No friend ever served me, and no enemy ever wronged me, whom I have not repaid in full. - quote by Lucius Cornelius Sulla

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Terri Felton passed away peacefully on June 25, 2021, just seven months after her husband of 38 years, Mike Felton, passed from cancer. Some could say she died from a broken heart.

Terri was born in Glendale, California, on May 24, 1958, to Harvey and Doris Jones.

She is survived by her two children, Breanna and Cole; granddaughter, Jayla-Lynne’; sisters, Kathy and Sandy; many nieces and nephews; and a few lucky adopted loved ones (Jennifer and Kalaya Mule).

Terri’s love for her family, friends, children and animals was extraordinary, and her selfless acts of kindness are far too numerous to count!

She not only cared deeply for those around her, but she was also the kind of woman who would go out of her way to make friends with strangers to remind them that they were not just part of a community, but they were a part of her world.

Her larger-than-life personality and positive energy were the “secret ingredients” in everything she did and everyone she touched. She knew how to enjoy life and have a good time, and was always the life of the party! From her infectious laugh, to her great sense of humor, people couldn’t help but be drawn to her.

Terri had so many hobbies and interests that it was hard to keep up with and find room for them all! From her amazing oil paintings to her creative cuisine, the bootleg vino and lollipops, her beautifully handcrafted jewelry and the thousands of homemade gifts she made with her day care kids.

Along with spending heartfelt time with loved ones and raising little ones, she also enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, coaching, concerts, traveling, and a good dive bar here and there. She would love to order a martini, share a few dirty jokes and watch your reaction.

Terri was the best wife, mother, grandmother, friend, babysitter and collector of homeless animals anyone could have asked for! She was always ready and willing to lend an ear and give you a big hug, and knew how to calm the storm of a broken heart.

She will be forever missed, as her absence has left a deep scar among those who loved her dearly.

Funeral service will be held at Hartley Cemetery on Friday, July 23, at 10 a.m.

A memorial gathering to celebrate Michael and Terri Felton will be held on Saturday, July 24, at noon at the Riviera Hills Restaurant.
