Terri Marie Stuenkel (Johns), 53,  passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, August 27th, 2021. She was surrounded by her children and partner, Tim Keller, of 9 years. Terri was born on October 15, 1967 in Ann Arbor, MI . She was an only child of William and Maureen (Possanza) Johns. Terri attended Saline Public Schools, received her medical degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1995, and completed her residency at McLaren Regional Medical Center. Specializing in Family Practice and Addiction Medicine, she practiced all over the state of Michigan in Tecumseh, Deckerville, Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor and Ontonagon. She had a special way of making her patients feel seen, heard, and understood. Her kind heart and warm disposition carried through all her work as a physician. Terri was a loving mother, daughter, partner and friend. She left behind her partner, Tim; her father, William; and her two children Erika (Jerrod), and Ryan. She is preceded in death by her mother Maureen. She talked often about her greatest accomplishment, her children. She had a passion for photography, especially pictures of beautiful Lake Superior sunsets and calm waters. She loved painting, crafts, and scrapbooks. Some of her favorite days were spent gardening and relaxing with her dog, Squish. Cozy blankets and scented candles were her favorite things at the end of a long day. She loved experimenting in the kitchen and occasionally setting off the smoke alarm.  She loved being a doctor, and making an impact on anyone who crossed paths with her. Her presence, sense of humor, and infectious laugh lit up a room, and will never be forgotten. A memorial service will be held 12p.m.-4p.m on Saturday, September 4th, 2021 at J. Gilbert Purse Funeral Home 210 W Pottawatomie St.Tecumseh, MI 49286
