It's been 2 years today since we lost you. So much has happened and I've needed your advice through all of it.
I miss you every day and always will.
Here is the message that was shared by the Pastor at Terry's funeral, for anyone who would like to have a copy of this.
All our love,
Destiny and Ryan Zore
Terry Sue Zore, 65 years old, of Indianapolis, Indiana passed away on Saturday, August 21, 2021. Terry was born in Yongsan-Gu, Seoul Korea on August 3, 1956 to Robert Lee and Ki Hwa (Um) Nolan. Terry was loved and treasured by her family. Terry shared that same love and adoration for her entire family as well. Her memory and her legacy will live on in each of them forever. She is preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her children, son; Steve E. Zore II and daughter-in-law Dawn; her son Ryan M. Zore and daughter-in-law Destiny; her grandchildren Clarissa Zore, Olivia Zore, Gia, and Kayla; her brother Mike Nolan and sister-in-law Marie; her brother Mark “Tony” Nolan and sister-in-law Anita; her sisters Pam Nolan and Vicki Nolan. Terry had just recently retired from spending years dedicating herself to her work at the lab and cancer center, and her intentions were to start a dog rescue for elderly dogs to live out the remainder of their lives. Memorial contributions in honor of Terry can be made to the Indianapolis Humane Society.
Terry loved so many people and so many things. She really embraced the true definition of a strong woman with the morals she stood by and by the way she unconditionally loved those in her life. She loved her sons Steve and Ryan so much. They were her world. And vice versa. Those men loved their mother and were very close with her. She loved her daughters, her grandchildren, her siblings, her nieces and nephews, her cousins / aunts and uncles, her friends, her co-workers and her patients… She touched the lives of so many.
Terry was very artistic and creative. She loved to design things and make things by hand. And she had a true talent for it. Terry had a strong interest in jewelry making and gemstones. She loved flowers and nature like her mother Ki Hwa. She loved to bake cakes and was a great cook! She loved cooking desserts and the Korean dishes from her family’s recipes. She truly respected and admired her Korean background and culture. She carried herself with a strong silent elegance and class, and was extremely sharp, smart, and strong. She believed in honor and loyalty. She believed in fairness and kindness and love. She never spoke a bad word about anyone and would always be there to lend a supportive shoulder, sound advice, and unconditional love. She never passed judgement. She taught those around her “The Ways of the Hwa” as she held the customs and traditions and teachings from her mother very close to her heart. It was important to Terry to spread them around to those closest to her.
Terry was adventurous and fun. People who knew her the most knew she was one who carried poise but they also knew that she packed a beautiful punch. She most definitely left her mark in this world. Terry loved traveling and she loved playing those slot machines. She was a huge prankster. She loved playing pranks. She loved to laugh. Her laugh was bright and infectious.
Throughout all of the years that she dedicated herself to working at the lab and cancer center, she also spent a lot of time volunteering, being charitable, and donating to the cancer center. Terry loved all types of music. She loved the Discovery Channel. And she loved Horror films. She would tell you that she was a decent gardener. She loved her pets. She treated them like her own children. She had the hugest heart. She always looked out for her family.
Best way to sum up such an amazing person would be to describe her just as she was. Terry represented the epitome of fairness, patience, class, strength, independence, sense of humor, intelligence, honor, and unconditional love.
To the family of Terry,
I had the pleasure of meeting Terry in the hospital. Great lady! She really made an impression on me. So sorry for your loss.
My condolences go out to the family of Terry. She was such a kind and friendly woman. I worked with her at HRH and she always greeted people with a warm smile and always had a kind response. She made a great impression on me in several ways. She will be greatly missed!
Our hearts go out to the Zore & Nolan families. Terry was truly one of a kind - a wise, generous, loving spirit who was fun to be around. She made us feel welcome & treated our family as a part of her own. One of the strongest, hard working women I know, she will always be a great role model to those close to her. She was full of creativity & always pondering new ideas. We will miss her smiling face & warm hugs. Terry, I hope you know how special you are to each & every one of us. We love you. Rob, Missy & Emma
I was saddened to learn of Terry´s passing. My prayers are with her family. I feel blessed to have known and worked with Terry for many years. Terry was always so kind and thoughtful to me and to others. I remember how she always took the time to make a birthday cake for me every year on my birthday. I will also always remember how she lifted my spirits by visiting me in the ICU when I was very ill with Covid-19 last year. I will miss Terry and remember her always. May God Bless.
I am so glad I got to know Terry and become good friends with her. I always enjoyed talking to her. She was such a strong woman and always had a positive attitude and a smile on her face! She was always very caring and supportive. I will miss her very much. She will always have a special place in my heart!
This wonderful family made me a part of them and enriched my life for over the last 40 years. Terry showed me the real value and love of a true best friend. She made me strive to always be a better person. Like many, my heart is broke but I have to remember Terry will not suffer anymore and now she can be with her mother and father.
I am so glad I was lucky enough to know Terry I have gotten to spend time off and on with her my favorite memory is helping her with Dawn and Steve's wedding year's ago we had a great time crafting for it. Terry you will forever be missed and loved by so many people. Fly High With Your Beautiful Angel Wings and always watch over your boy's. I love you my beautiful friend until we see each other again RIP

The best momma. Love you so very much, Terry. Thank you for all the deep conversations, motherly advice, laughter and memories. Thank you for making sure I knew I was loved by you as one of your children and for loving me as your daughter. You're stamped on our lives and hearts for all of eternity. Ryan and I will miss you forever.
Mom you took me under your wing when I was only 14 years old and guided me through all of life's journeys. You loved me unconditionally and because of you I have become the woman I am today. I am truly honored to be your daughter. You are an amazing woman! I love you mom!
I have for the past few days just sitting & remembering the first time I met Terry. We met at work, at the Danville Medical Office. We worked in the lab. We both took turns going to the nursing homes at 3:00am. as Phlebotomist.. My first reaction to her was LOL. I can't put into words. Here I was in my standard dress for working in a lab, all in white, with white shoes. And here came Terry, all dressed up with a white lab coat, wearing high heels. LOL She could have passed for a Doctor. We both bonded & became the best of friends. When she was hired at Joslin , I wasn't far behind her.
I love her, we had the best a times at work & play. She was the most positive person I have ever known. And I know in heaven she will be watching out for her Sons & Grand children. I believe she will be watching all of us. She was my BFF, it didn't matter the distance. Her in Indy & me in TN. She is no longer in pain & she fought the good fight & now she can rest & be with God.
LOVE YOU, ALWALYS!,
I worked with Terry at the Cancer Center for 6 years at the front desk. She was the best friend and co-worker I have ever had. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone. My favorite thing to do was to make her laugh and I will miss her laugh every day. The impact she had on patients still holds strong as I am asked about her daily. Miss you girly!!
Terry was one of the kindness people I have met. I wear a bracelet she made me in remembrance of my father when he passed. Now I also wear it in remembrance of her. She will be missed at HRH and by all the patients whom she so lovingly served. My condolences to her family. May God grant you His peace and comfort at this difficult time.
My condolences to the family. I worked at HRH in the billing department and often emailed Terry for information to do my work. She was always kind and considerate. I only met her once, but her kindness shown through. I hope for peace and comfort to all of you in all your happy memories.
I too work at HRH and can always remember seeing her bright and shining smile. She cared so much for her patients and did everything she could for them. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss and pray that you feel comforted during this time.
We are so sorry for the loss of your sister Terry. Our deepest condolences to you and your family.
Dave and Bea
All I can say is Terri was a great sister and friend, and will be missed physically and whole heartedly. Love you Terri see you on the other side one day.
All I know is that Terry was an angel here on earth. She was always so cheerful when I was around her. She was so dear to our sister in the time of dire need and made sure she was taken good care of in the hospital. We were so blessed to have her there with us. Now they get to hang out together in heaven. My most sincere condolences to her family, extended family and friends. She is missed already and will be until we meet again. All my love to all the Nolan's
