Terry Jo (Holmes) Hofer was born in Bangor, Maine on November 18, 1951 to Maxine (Lynch) Holmes and Dr. Vern D. Holmes. Terry Jo and her parents returned to their native Nebraska, settling in Chadron, where Terry graduated from in 1969. She attended cosmetology school in North Platte and was creative and talented at her craft. She married Lance C. Antonson in January, 1974. Together, Lance and Terry welcomed raised three children, Cortney Jo, Toby Lee, and Levi Evan. Terry taught at Joseph’s College of Beauty while living in Lincoln, NE; she worked construction on a bridge just outside of Haigler, NE – a job her kids were really proud of; and she worked for Burrows Vision Clinic while living in Benkelman, NE.
In 1990, Terry married Shawn D. Hofer and was thrilled to help raise his children Joshua and Alison. Terry and Shawn moved to Ogallala-area in 1998. They have thoroughly enjoyed living near the lake for the hunting and fishing as well as in the country because of their love of animals. Terry was an undeniable people person and lit up every room she walked into with her effervescent personality, open heart, lovely smile, and twinkling eyes.
