Dorothy “Terby” Jones, 90, passed away at her home in Cooper City on September 25, 2021. She is predeceased by her parents Gert and Steve Trbovich, her husband Bob and her great grandson Dominic Cassidy. She is survived by her children Beth, Bobbi and David Jones, her grandchildren Pablo Lopez, Ricky (Jennifer) Lopez, Al;yssa (Ryan) Cassidy and her 6 great grandchildren Sadie, Isabella, Cameron, Caroline, Leila and Carly. She is also survived by her siblings Marty Hancock and Steve Trbovich.

Terby grew up in Midland, PA, where she studied nursing. She travelled to Florida in the 1950’s with two of her nursing friends to work at St. Francis Hospital on Miami Beach for “six months”. She was mesmerized by the tropical weather, the ocean and a very handsome blue-eyed Miami Beach Fireman named Bob, whom she married in 1958 after a short courtship. After raising their children in North Miami, she returned to work as the head nurse of neurosurgery at Mt. Sinai Hospital on Miami Beach where she remained until her retirement. She deeply loved her family, friends and career. She was an avid football fan and turtle lover, as was evidenced by her extensive turtle collection. She touched the lives of so very many during her lifetime and will be deeply missed.

The family is mourning privately and will hold a celebration of life for friends and family in the near future, but a date has not yet been set.
