Teri was born in Denison, Iowa to Robert and Virginia Moeller and grew up in Dow City, Iowa. Teri participated in Band, Choir, and Basketball. This year would have been her 68th birthday and 50th High School Reunion. She married Chuck Higbee in 1976 and gave birth to Amanda in 1977 in Ames, Iowa, and to LeAnne in 1979 in Vermillion, South Dakoa. The Higbee family lived in Sioux City, Iowa where they attended the RLDS church (Teri played piano and helped with children's programs). They moved to Parkersburg, West Virgina (Teri spearheaded the Public Schools 'Child Abuse Prevention Program'), then to Wayne (participated in community theater every summer). Teri and the girls moved to Norfolk after the divorce. 

Teri moved to Omaha in 1996 and married Roger Dunn in 2004, and settled in Council Bluffs, Iowa. She worked as a legal secretary, in nutrition stores, taught Vitalizer aerobics classes, and was a Residential Realtor in the 1980s. She was proud of her diligence as a Real Property Appraiser for 18 years and handled 'closings' for a few different real estate brokerages/ lending institutions in her final years. She left a margin in her day to connect with people and always had a smile and encouraging words to give.

She was drawn to Lighthouses (Matthew 5:14-16) and Sunflowers (food for man, eyes and spirit {lessons to be learned from the sunflowers}. They grow roots deep and wide to survive strong winds, and always point their face towards the sun). She was a prepper (believer in the God given power of a spirit filled man not healthy, and declared His ordering of her steps often to prophesy, inductive studier of God's word, believer in His power to work healing miracles and move nations in the present day, he would rebuke Satan out loud, break 'soul ties' with relationships that were.)

She is survived by the following family members: brother, Chuck Moeller (sister-in-law, Colleen and niece, Carrie); brother-In-law, Bob Ettleman (nephew, Jim and niece, Lisa); daughter, Amanda Chun (Mandi Higbee) (son-in-law, Jacon and granddaughters, Ariana, Cassandra, and Kyla); daughter, LeAnne Kniewel (Higbee) (son-in-law, Robert and grandchildren, Taylor, Reid, Savannah, Madison, Derrick, and Andrew, great-grandson, Theodorick).

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Judy Ettleman.
