Teri Rae Mankins
Feb. 22, 1959-Jan. 18, 2022
Teri Rae Mankins passed away on Tuesday, January 18th 2022 after a hard-fought battle with breast cancer. Teri touched so many different people with her old soul and gentle heart.
Teri was born in Roaring Springs, PA. She was an Air Force “Brat,” and lived in many different places until her parents moved to North Highlands, CA. She graduated High School and met her future husband at the tender age of 13. After graduating high school Teri enlisted in the US Navy where she served honorably until 1981. After leaving the Navy, Teri and her husband, Richard, moved to CA where she had a great 39-year career with one company although many names (ESL, TRW, Northrop Grumman) until retiring in June 2020. While Teri enjoyed many things such as travel and volunteer work with the Tri-Valley Mothers of Twins Club, above all she enjoyed spending time with her family and many friends. Some of the greatest vacations were simple things like camping and boating at Lake Folsom or houseboating with friends on Lake Oroville. Teri raised three wonderful children, Ann, Clint, and Neal in Pleasanton, CA with her husband, Richard, of 42 years.
Teri is survived by her husband, Richard; her wonderful loving children, Ann Gomez of Folsom CA, Clint Mankins of Pleasanton, CA, and Neal Mankins of Reno NV and granddaughter Murphy Lynne Gomez of Folsom, CA. Teri is also survived by her Mother Gloria Ann Murphy of North Highlands, CA, Sister Cheryl Parker of Santa Rosa, CA and Sister Jerilyn Dortch of Antelope, CA. Teri will be missed greatly and in the hearts of all the lives she touched.
Teri will be interred at the Veterans cemetery in Dixon, CA, in a private family gathering. In lieu of flowers or cards, donations to the American Cancer Society in Teri’s name are appreciated.
