Terri Lynnette Wieland, 53, passed away peacefully on October 26th, 2021 in Chandler, Arizona. Terri was a very strong and loving individual. She was an outstanding mother as well as a loyal friend to many.
Terri was born in Jackson, Michigan on May 28, 1968. Terri grew up in Lansing, Michigan before pursuing interior design at Kendall school of art and design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She continued her studies in computer aided design at the CAD institute in Phoenix, Arizona. Terri became proficient in this field. After returning Wisconsin for 10 years and having her three children there, she moved back to Arizona in 2006 where she spent her last 15 years. Here in Arizona she sought out growth in the construction industry as a project manager where she worked diligently until she passed away. She was always the hardest worker and cared so much for everyone. Terri absolutely loved spending quality time with her kids, watching movies and sports, as well as spending her time enjoying the sunshine in any way she could.
Terri is survived by her three children Ariel, Anah and Austin Wieland; her ex husband and close friend Jeff Wieland; her mother Sandra Lopes; and her two sisters Tracy (Paul) Elieff, and Tamie Lopes; her nephew Tanner and nieces Sierra, Ryley and Isabella.

So very sorry for the loss of this amazing lady! Prayers for all that are missing her.
Terri, your soul is no doubt with the L-rd now. We were very fortunate to have you in our lives. No words could ever describe the positive impact you made on so many others. No amount of time anyone was able to spend with you would ever be enough. We love you, Terri. We will think of you often, and we can’t wait to meet up with you again. Say hi to Jesus for us, and tell G-d how much we appreciate Him for creating you. Thanks for being such a wonderful woman. We’ll see each other before you know it.
To the wonderful kids that were left without the most wonderful Mom of all time. She lived for you, in everything she did. She always shared with me, the cutest stories as you guys were growing up, way too fast, in her words. Terri was a wonderful friend too. We had some great times! Movies, pedicures, manicures, lunches, and just laughing together. We miss her, as everyone else does. See ya soon honey. Lots of love ❤️
