Obituary On Monday, November 28, 2022, Terry O’Grady of Montgomery Village, MD passed away after a back-and-forth battle with Cancer. Mary Therese O’Grady was born in Detroit, MI to the late Catherine Neville and Alfred Thomas O’Grady. She was a graduate of the University of Michigan and was a devoted parishioner of St. Francis of Assisi Church. Terry was active politically, not as a politician, but as a community advocate. It was once stated that she was “the most powerful woman in Montgomery County,” as she was always trying to keep local politicians in line. She enjoyed gardening, going to plays, going out to eat, chatting with friends and her weekly calls with her son Kevin and friend Phyllis. Terry will be remembered as a fiery, red headed Irish woman who never backed down and was always on the go. When she set her mind to something, nothing was going to stop her. She opened her home up to so many great friends and family over the years. She enjoyed having Stephanie Paulhamus being part of that group, as a “daughter” and “sister” to her and her family. Many years later, Terry gained another daughter when her son, Kevin, married Rachel. Terry was very proud of her grandson, Tret, and would stay up late with Andy to watch him play high school football. Andy was the love of her life and helped her realize that a home wasn’t just for people, but plants also. They loved having BLT’s every Sunday with fresh tomatoes from their garden. Terry will not only be missed greatly by her family and loved ones but her friends and many people within the community. Terry is survived by her beloved partner of 37 years, Andy Chepega; her loving sons, Kevin Vieson (wife, Rachel) and Joseph Vieson; and a devoted grandson, Tret. Family will receive friends at PUMPHREY’S COLONIAL FUNERAL HOME, 300 W. Montgomery Ave, Rockville, MD on Tuesday, December 6, 2022 from 4 to 7 pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 6701 Muncaster Mill Road, Derwood, MD on Wednesday, December 7, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. Entombment to follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 13801 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD.
