Teri Beveridge, San Diego resident, was born September 14th, 1966 in Anaheim, CA to Patricia Palmer and Ray Palmer, and peacefully passed away October 24th, 2021 surrounded by every one of her loved ones. Teri is survived by her husband, Mark Beveridge; her two children Sami (Nick) Black, and Deryck (Shelby) Beveridge; her two beautiful granddaughters, Grace Black and Remington Beveridge; her mother, Patricia Palmer; her brother Raymond (Tamela) Palmer; her nephews, Chance, Logan and Trent Palmer; her mother-in-law Geraldine Harre; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that adored her.
Teri was known for her loving and wild spirit; she could light up any room she walked into. She was known as the “bringer” of all friends and family together. She was born in Anaheim, CA where her mother and father brought her home to a loving home filled with loved ones, even the neighbor boys were there to meet her. Two years later, Teri’s brother Raymond was brought home to the same household full of love. Over the years Teri, tortured, but ultimately loved and protected her little brother with her entire heart. The following years growing up Teri was surrounded with nothing but love from her 11 aunts and uncles and Michigan family. These years were filled with Chippewa family picnics, camping adventures, road trips and matching windbreakers.
She grew up in Yorba Linda where she attended Esperanza High School, made lifelong friends, that to this day we’re lucky enough to call family. She was the “cool kid on the block” being one of the first kids to have cable AND MTV. She met her husband Mark at a “house party” (AKA kegger-sorry Pat) in 1983, after a year of “bugging” her, she finally agreed to a date, and then later married the love of her life June 8th, 1985.
They started an amazing life together, Mark joined the Air Force, they moved to Lancaster, CA and had their daughter Samantha Krystine Beveridge at Edwards Air Force Base. They made their way to San Diego, where Mark was hired with the National City Fire Department in 1989, and one year later had their son Deryck Alan Beveridge. They bought their home in Lakeside, CA where they lived for 20 years. Teri worked at Valhalla High School for many years in the counseling department, where she touched the lives of each and every one of her students. She went back to school where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Arts with an emphasis in Human Development, she continued her education and later received her Master’s Degree in Psychology with a dream of becoming a Licensed Family Therapist. She started her Doctorate Program and that’s when life had different plans and her cancer started needing more attention. They later moved to their home now in Imperial Beach, CA which is just a rock’s throw to the ocean. Just as Teri always wanted.
Teri was bigger than life itself and loved nothing more than being surrounded by friends and family. She loved concerts, Kid Rock, unintentional inappropriate jokes, vulgar rap music, and she was every child’s Grammy. She was so loved. Being a Grammy was her biggest joy and Grace and Remi were lucky enough to get to spend the first years of their lives being loved and spoiled by their Grammy. Her legacy will forever live on in them. She passed peacefully on October 24th, with her husband, mother, brother, son, daughter, and mother-in-law by her side. We will miss her crazy spirit dearly. There will be a burial at Memorial National Cemetery on November 23rd, at 12:30 in the afternoon. At a later date there will be a celebration of life, a “real rager” as Teri would have wanted with inappropriate rap music; TBD.
