A Sacred Moment


Terry Jo Bronson

January 08, 1954 - July 23, 2017

Beloved wife, mother, grandmother

Terry Jo Bronson, 63, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, passed peacefully on Sunday, July 23, 2017 after a long, painful struggle with colon cancer. Diagnosed in early 2013, Terry faced the challenges of living with cancer until the end of life. She was in the presence of her husband, Spencer and two loving daughters Karisa and Desiree as she transitioned to the everlasting spiritual world at Providence Medical and Hospice Center in Everett, Washington.

Terry was born January 8, 1954 in Anacortes, Washington to Robert Charles & Arline Mavis Suryan.

Terry was a graduate of Meadowdale High School Class of 1972 and then awarded a scholarship to Cosmetology School. Terry graduated and became a Hair Stylist in Edmonds, Washington.

Terry married her “Soul Mate” Spencer Bronson in Honolulu Hawaii, January 9, 1980 and remained with him until her death. Terry became a homemaker raising 2 daughters Karisa Ann, and Desiree Arline, both of whom Terry nurtured from childhood to adults. After the girls graduated from school, Terry pursued her Real estate Brokerage License. Since her Licensing, Terry has become a successful and respected Real estate Broker, working at Century21 Real Estate Center in Lynnwood, Washington.

Terry has always been admired for her giving nature, truly a “heart of gold”.  Her winning ways, perseverance, and positive attitude will always be revered, respected and remembered. She loved spending time surrounded by family and loved ones, most recently being captivated with the newest addition to life, grand daughter Kendall Lazuta.

Terry is survived by her husband, Spencer Bronson, daughter Desiree Bronson, daughter, Karisa Lazuta and her husband, Derin Lazuta, and granddaughter Kendall Lazuta.  Her sisters Denise, Susan, and Karen and their extended families survive her.

Her parents, Robert & Arline Suryan, precede her in death.


Irish Funeral Prayer

Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.
