Terry Ann Washington-Jones was born on July 7, 1958, in Abilene, Texas to Willie Lee and Annie T. Jones Washington. She was the oldest of four children and lovingly fulfilled the role of mentor for her siblings.

She grew up in Abilene and started her Christian journey as a member of Mount Zion First Baptist Church, where in her younger years she was active in the young adult choir and served as the secretary of the Sunday School. She attended schools in Abilene Independent School District and graduated from Cooper High School. Terry continued her education at the American Commercial College and earned a certification in business.

After college, she entered the working world as a researcher at the First State Bank in Abilene. She left Abilene to enter a career as a Computer Technician with the Fleming Computer Company in Oklahoma and later retired from Commercial Metal in Dallas, Texas. Terry had a passion for black art and figurines, which inspired her to become an entrepreneur, as she sold canvas art and statues from Artistic Impressions and Ebony Treasures. She also sold original/signed art from independent black artists such as: Elaine Dungill, J. Rose, Annie France Lee, Robert Brasher and many more.

Terry is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Lamar Jones and Lou Mattie Wilburn, paternal grandparents, Joe and Cora Washington and a host of aunts and uncles.
