In 1997, at the age of 60, she graduated from law school in San Diego and was admitted to the State Bar of California and later to the State Bar of West Virginia and to the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) Bar. She specialized in civil rights, battered immigrant women, special education and constitutional law. Her last law position was as legal director of the ACLU of West Virginia.

Terri wrote poetry, hiked mountains and ran the Charleston Distance Run (15 miles) four times and numerous 10K and 5K races. She was champion of her age group six consecutive years in the Charleston 5K.

She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Jim; her son, Ben of Santa Fe; daughter, Bobbi of San Diego; five grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.

C. Emerson Propps Print Comment Top of page

C. Emerson Propps passed away peacefully on Wednesday, the 16th of December 2015, surrounded by his children Daniel Robideaux, Anthony Propps, Tre Propps, Daughter in law Larissa Robideaux, Daughter in law Angelica Loza, and lifelong friend and business partner, William E Andrews. In addition, he leaves behind his 11 beloved grandchildren Neko, Quinn, Isaiah, Cassidy, Kyle, Zavie, Savannah, Kayden, Kaleb, Treson, and Johnny.

Emerson was a native of Charleston West Virginia where he attended Gauley Bridge High school from 1949 – 1953. In high school he was captain of the football team, Choir member, Beta club, Phi Delta Kappa, Varsity Club, Class President, he was voted Best Looking, Best Dancer, Most Popular, Best Student, Best Citizen, and was loved and admired by all that he met. He continued his education at the University of Ohio from 1953 – 1957 where he began to pursue his passion in medicine but quickly learned he had a large amount of empathy towards the patients who passed away, which led him to pursue a Bachelor's in Business. He attended NYU from 1957 – 1958 and from 1958 - 1961 he ultimately obtained his PHD in German Philology from the University of West Berlin in Dahlen, Germany. In the summer of 1961 he attended the University of Paris-Sorbonne, then traveled back to his hometown of West Virginia and taught at the Montgomery High School from 1961 – 1962.

As he began his professional life as an entrepreneur, he owned and operated many businesses, from his first bar "The Friendly-Inn" on the outskirts of Washington DC in Cheverly Maryland, to a multiplicity of Hotels/Motels from Denver Colorado, Portland Oregon, Reno Nevada, to San Francisco and many other small business with his two dear friends and business partners William E. Andrews and Dale S. Bentley whom he met in Reno Nevada in September of 1967. The three partners built and ran multiple successful businesses together.

In 1976 Emerson decided to travel the world he visited: England, Germany, France, Algeria, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Soviet Union, Stalingrad, Italy, Norway, Sweden & Denmark. In later years he enjoyed sharing stories about his world travel experiences with his sons and grandchildren.

It was in 1983 that Emerson adopted the first of his three sons. In Emerson's words, "this was the beginning of the most beautiful part of his life." His Son Tre was adopted at the age of 7, two years later he adopted his son Daniel age 11, and 8 years later he adopted his son Anthony age 15. Without hesitation Emerson opened his home and his heart to these young men and changed the course of their lives forever. Through his love and grace, each of these boys now have families of their own and are providing their children with the same environment of love, compassion, and family. Emerson's impact on these boys and their children, and all future generations, will forever be remembered and honored through their actions and unconditional love for each other.

In Emerson's final days he was surrounded by the family he had created, in his own home, where all the good times and love was remembered as he was comforted into his last moments.

While Dad leaves us all here to carry on his legacy of family, we know that he is reunited with family and friends that have passed before him, and that he is looking down upon all of us with the same care and love that he gave everyone in his life. All future generations will know his name, and that he was the origin of all that we have in life and family.

We love you Dad, Rest in Peace!
