Terry A. Andrade died on July 12 in Dunedin, Fla., after a long battle with cancer. She was 59.

Terry was born and raised on Martha’s Vineyard, and went to Island schools, graduating from Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. She loved going to Linda Jean’s to have her favorite cup of coffee and American chop suey. She also liked going to Cumberland farms to pick up her father’s papers every morning. When her mother was alive, she and Terry would go out every Thursday night to play Bingo. Terry also loved going out to hear live bands play, and dancing.

Her first job was working at the old Ben Franklin 5 & 10 store, where she worked for a couple of years until she took another job driving the senior citizens van. She later found a job that she really enjoyed: being a TSA agent at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport, where she worked for years. She loved working with the friends she met there.

She transferred her job and moved to Florida, where she met her boyfriend Tony Depaula, and her best friend, Robbie the dog. She was married to Sidney Counsel for a short period, and they remained friends.

Terry had a kind heart and would help anybody in need, but most of all she loved her family, and her dog, Robbie. Her good friend Antoinette Cutrer, whom she loved and trusted, watched over her.

She was predeceased by her mother, Martha Fay (Brennan) Andrade and is survived by her father, Richard J. Andrade Sr. She is also survived by three sisters and three brothers: Carol Andrade of Florida, Judy Martinek of Colorado, Debbie Luce and her husband Sandy of Edgartown, Dicky Andrade and wife Connie of Edgartown, Bobby Andrade and wife Nancy of Vineyard Haven, and Tommy Andrade and wife Elizabeth of South Dennis; and her nieces and nephews: David, Sarah and Timmy Luce, Jesse Martinek, Jocelyn and Derek Andrade, and Zachary and Benjamin Andrade, as well as her great niece and nephew, Jayden and Mason Luce.

Her memorial service will be held on September 10 at 11 a.m. at Oak Grove Cemetery.
