Father, husband, brother, son, friend and devoted Cowboys fan, Terry Wilm, died in the early morning of March 22, 2015, after an eleven year battle with brain cancer.
Terry was born on November 3, 1970, to Catherine (Bohnenstingl) and John Wilm. Terry was raised with his three siblings on the family farm near Hankinson and graduated from Hankinson High school in 1989. Terry graduated from MSUM with a degree in Mathematics and worked for Menard’s until 2014.
Terry married LaDonna Bauske on May 6, 1995, and they were blessed with three amazing sons.
Terry’s competitive spirit, iron will, and silent strength, were developed on the family farm and perfected in his many athletic accomplishments in high school. Those traits continued to be demonstrated as he defied all expectations following his cancer diagnosis. He worked, he loved, he challenged, and he laughed longer than anyone dared hope. Terry’s commitment to his family was unwavering, as was his desire to live a normal life in challenging circumstances.
His family is eternally grateful to the many friends, co-workers, neighbors, and fellow parishioners who participated in two benefits (Hankinson 2003 and Fargo Nativity 2010), which provided support and encouragement in the long fought battle.
Terry was preceded in death by grandparents, Ray and Elizabeth Bohnenstingl and John and Florence Wilm, and his mother-in-law, Darlene Bauske.
Left to celebrate a life well lived are his wife, LaDonna Wilm; sons, Nicholas, Nathan and Lucas Wilm; parents, John C. and Catherine Wilm; siblings, Myron (Lesa) Wilm; Cindy (Shane) Albright; Mike (Shelley) Wilm; father in law, Don Bauske, and nieces and nephews.
Blessed be the memory of Terry Wilm.
