She was born September 19, 1955 in Des Moines, the daughter of Orville and Thelma Bellville. She graduated from East High School.
Terri's happiest moments were spending time with her pets, which were her "children", and she adored them with a passion and a devotion that was unequaled. She attended Grandview College, in Des Moines. During her time in college she proudly made the dean's list. She enjoyed gardening, and raising roses; reading and the works of John Grisham; all things "Harry Potter;" and the music of Elvis Presley and Motown. She is survived by her devoted wife of thirty-five years, Marci Malott and her "children" Shelby, Gracie, Winston, Jazz, Daisy, Ty and Callie; her brothers Bruce (Penny) Bellville, Jeff (Nancy) Bellville , and Steve Bellville; a niece, Alicia Bellville; and two nephews, Greg (Amanda) Bellville, and Jacob (Melanie) Bellville. Other family members include brother-in-law Greg (Monica) Malott and sister-in-law Julie (Dan) Knight; Aunt Harriett Buck, Uncles Jim and George Fisher. She was preceded in death by her parents, her grandpa George Foote and her loving grandma Mary Pierson. Terri was formerly employed by Equifax, and owned and operated her own bridal store. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), and the Humane Society of the United States. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Terri's name may be made to Cavalier Rescue USA or to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa.
