Theresa Ann Yurachek, of Elburn, Illinois, passed away peacefully on November 7th, 2021.

Terry is preceded by her father, Newton LeVee, and survived by her mother, Charlotte Ann LeVee, her devoted husband, James Yurachek, and adoring daughter, Victoria Yurachek. She is dearly loved by her older sister, Diane Cork, brother-in-laws, sister-in-laws, nieces, nephews, best friends, and brothers.

Terry was an avid traveler who enjoyed taking lavish vacations. She lived her life to the fullest and always had exciting trips planned. When she wasn’t taking trips with family, she enjoyed meeting her friends out for lunch. The endless memories of summer weekends at her pool are held closely to the hearts of lifelong friends that have become family.

Terry had an impressive multi-award winning career in the travel industry, but her biggest achievement has always been her husband and daughter. Terry and Jim have had the most beautiful love story and have been married for over 40 years. Their daughter, Tori, completed the strong bond of their family trio. The love that these three have can never be described, but is easily seen and felt by everyone who knows them.

“Always do what makes you happy! And travel! It’s great to see parts of the world – some because of history…some just because it’s cool!” Although Terry’s passport has received it’s last stamp, the impressions that she has left on this Earth and with her loved ones will always continue to thrive.

All services are being held privately.

  1. Jim and Tori and Family, My most heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your beloved Terry. I just learned of her passing. I met Terry in our training class at Royal Caribbean in 2000 and we went on to make many great memories and have a LOT of fun together over the years. She was a loyal friend, with an excellent work ethic and reputation with her accounts.
    I will always remember Terry for the intense love she had for Jim and Tori. Whenever we would meet up at an airport, conference, or on a ship, the first thing she would do was show me pictures of her precious Tori. I specifically remember photos of Tori driving a go cart and photos of her in her cheer uniform…Terry’s family was her greatest accomplishment and source of pride. What a beautiful legacy she has left… I’m so very sorry it was just so soon.
    With Deepest Sympathy,
    Kerry Mitchell Muller
