Terry Lee Rupp

April 13, 1962 — February 10, 2023


Terry Lee Rupp, 60, of Missoula, Montana, formerly of Garden City, Kansas, passed away on Friday, February 10, 2023, at Providence St. Patrick Hospital. 

Terry Lee was born April 13, 1962, in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, the oldest of three daughters born to Orlyn and Virginia Dickson. From a young age cooking was a passion of Terry Lee’s, and she loved experimenting and having her family try out her delicious meals. Nursing however was Terry’s calling. Most recently Terry was working in the oncology department at St. Patrick’s, and she truly loved going to work each day. She knew how important the work she did was and how her own experiences could be a help to those she served each day. Her sweet bubbly personality and giving attitude greatly affected those around her. 

Terry Lee was a movie buff, she wanted to watch it whether it was new or old, a western or a rom com. She loved animals, rescuing many dogs over the years, and she could be described as a fan of Elvis and Kiss! But nothing in Terry Lee’s life trumped the love she had for her family. She was glad to spend many years in Kansas near her daughters and grandchildren, only moving back to Montana in the last couple of years. 

Preceded in death by her father, Orlyn. 

Left to cherish TerryLee’s memory are her dear mother Virginia “Gini” Christensen; loving daughters: Vanessa (Berto) Reitmeyer- Patoja/Conejo, Logan (Francisco) Garcia, and Taylor (Kyle) Rupp- Romero; her cherished grandchildren: Andrea, Monica, Mateo, Baron, Alexander, Maximus, Jenavecia, Gabriella, Gigi, Orcino and Adrian; her devoted sisters: Brenda (Eldon) Patterson and Ginger (Duane) Golden;  and her nephew and niece: Zakary and Jenna, along with many other extended family and friends.
