Brady named Henrico Christmas Mother
Terry McConnell Brady, a retired Henrico County math teacher, has been named the 2012 Henrico Christmas Mother.
A native of Abingdon, Va., where she grew up on a farm with three brothers, Brady resides in the Tuckahoe District and is a long-time member of Tuckahoe Presbyterian Church, where she serves as a Sunday school teacher and works in the outreach division. She also volunteers with Meals on Wheels and the American Cancer Society, and has been involved with the Henrico Christmas Mother program for three years.
Brady has been married to her husband, Patrick, for 48 years and they have three children and six grandchildren. She enjoys spending time with her family as well as reading and gardening.
The mission of the Henrico Christmas Mother is to provide new clothes, toys, books and food to qualifying families, the elderly, and adults with disabilities during the holiday season.
The 501(c)(3) organization is run by an all-volunteer Council consisting of former Henrico Christmas Mothers and representatives of each of Henrico County’s five magisterial districts. This year's Henrico Christmas Mother Council officers include President Shelly Poole, Vice President Betsy Foster, Treasurer Mary Shaia, Assistant Treasurer Betty Lyon, Recording Secretary Robin Smith, Corresponding Secretary Karen Moore and Members-at- Large Charlotte Melton and Ruth Radzisauskas.
