She was born on May 17, 1960, and a graduate of Colonial Heights High School.  She was employed as a medical coder for Change Health Care.  Terri was a gentle kind soul who loved the ocean, her two fur baby children Maxwell and Toby, and hanging out with her friends she fondly called her group. She adored her husband and you rarely saw them apart.  They were true soulmates and best friends. She loved Saturday shopping and lunches with her best friend Kim Goad and her sister Debbie.  She always enjoyed giving more than receiving and was a great giver of her time to anyone who needed it.  She always knew what to say and her smile moved us all.  She is preceded in death by her loving parents, Robert M. Allen and Jacqueline J. Allen. She leaves behind her devoted and loving husband of 40 years, Phillip G. Bryant, Jr. of Colonial Heights, her loving sister, Debbie Lynn Allen and partner Brian Bishop of Purdy, nephews:  Steven Michael Traylor and wife Courtney. Their children, James, Caydence, Avery, McKynzie, Hannah, Jordyn, and Alysa.  Kenneth Ryan Pilout and his wife Corrin. Their children, Kensley, Kaylynn, and Caleb. Also, left to cherish her memory are her loving Father and Mother in law, Phillip G. Bryant Sr. and Ruth Bryant of Colonial Heights, sister in law, Debbie Bryant Pyle and husband John.  Their children Jennifer Pyle Mathews and husband Steven. Their children, Jacob, Loren, Natalie, and Madilyn.  Sean Pyle and wife Meghan.  Their children, Aletheia, Graham, and Eden.  Caiti Pyle Garter and husband Anthony. Their children, Haley and Mason.  Sister in law, Terri Bryant Mckenney and husband Robbie. Their children, Tiffani Hasty, and husband Jason.  Their children, Emma Ruth and Reese.  Daniel and fiancé Kristin and Phillip Hunter.  Brother in law Jonathan Bryant and his wife Kim.  Their children Jessica and Noah.

Kim Allen Underwood, Chuck Allen, Dennis Allen, David Allen, Paul Allen, and Nona Langston Whitman. Terri leaves so many friends to cherish her friendship and memory.  We all will remember that bright white smile that lit up everywhere she happened to be.  Her gentle soft way of speaking, and the kindest heart on the planet.  She would want all of us to remember the good times we shared with her and not focus on the grief.  Her bright light will shine in all of us forever.  A memorial service will be held at 3:00 p.m. Friday, December 6, 2019, in the Colonial Heights Chapel of E.
