Terri will be lovingly remembered by her family: parents, Anthony and Ellen Polacca, sister Renae, and brother, Ryun. She leaves behind, the 3 loves of her life, her children: Judson Baker (23), Rylie Kelley (20), and Reagan Haskell (14). She also loved numerous animals through the years. Terri attended Lawrence Public Schools (Centennial, Central Junior High, and Lawrence High School). While attending Lawrence High School she participated on the girls’ gymnastics team. After years as a homemaker, she went back to continue her education. She graduated from Pinnacle Career Center with a certificate as a Personal Fitness Trainer.
