Grandma Terry Edelblute

 Terry Mae Birdsey Edelblute passed away, peacefully, Friday May 26th, 2023 at 1:21 am at North Idaho Advanced Care Hospital in Post Falls Idaho from pneumonia. The staff of this facility took amazing care of her and the family.

Terry was born on September 16th, 1947 to Claude and Alice Birdsey in Bellingham, Washington. She married Earl Arthur Edelblute on December 21, 1968 in Flathead Montana and eventually settled in Rathdrum Idaho.

Known for her hugs, Terry had the sweetest, kindest soul you would ever meet. The best way to describe her, was as whirlwind! She was always on the go (mostly to the area casinos! ). She never met a stranger and was the biggest baby magnet, having the biggest grins for all of the little ones.

Terry was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Earl Arthur Edelblute, sons Melvin Coy, Kenneth William and grandson Joshua Dean.

She is survived by three step children, numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and friends who will greatly miss her quick wit and mischievous laugh (what are you up to Grandma?)

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
