Terry A. Nischan

Terry A. Nischan, 56, a resident of Antioch, passed away January 20, 2017, at her home.  She was born December 9, 1960 in Evanston, IL to Sherman and Christine (nee: Westcott) Nischan.  Terry was an amazing woman.  Her love for her daughter, grandkids, Tommy, and her sons-in-law Mike and Jody was infinite.  She touched so many lives with her spirit, kindness, and her beautiful smile.  She was a force of nature, and to know her was to love her.  She was her grandkids biggest fan and to all the other kids that knew her as Oma at every sporting event.  She cheered for them all as if they were own.  She treated everyone like family, and truly meant it when she asked you how you were doing.  She lived her life to the fullest and loved with all of her heart and soul.  Terry was an amazing mother, but her greatest roll was that of Oma.  Her love for her daughter and grandkids was unlike any other.   Those fortunate enough to be a part of her world only truly know how great of a loss this is.  Heaven gained a beautiful angel, but left our world with a little less light.  May she fly to the Angels, always cheer for her beloved Bears and Cubs, and always curse the Packers, and cheer for her babies (and sometimes the wrong team)!  Terry is survived by the love of her life Tommy, her daughter Jennifer (Mike) Keeter of Round Lake, Oma to her grandchildren Alex, Jake, Mason, Brayden, Jameson, and Jaxon, her siblings Debbie (Mark) Atkins of WI, Sheryl (Al) Gafka of Algonquin, and Karen (Vince) Seminerio of Rockford, and loving aunt to Elizabeth Gafka, Christopher Nischan, Janice Enslow, and Albert Seminerio.  She was preceded in death by her parents.  A visitation and funeral service is scheduled for Friday, January 27, 2017 from 3:00pm until 7:00pm with the funeral service commencing at 7:00pm at Strang Funeral Chapel & Crematorium 410 E. Belvidere Rd. Grayslake, IL 60030.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the family to assist with funeral expenses.  For more information please contact (847)223-8122 or log onto www.strangfuneral.org.
