Terry Thomas Primer


TERRY THOMAS PRIMER is entering her 16th year as a chaplain with Springpoint Senior Living, the largest provider of senior adult housing in New Jersey. She provides spiritual care for a continuing care retirement community and two assisted living communities. In 2007 she completed a D.Min from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. Her dissertation topic was “God’s Oldest Friends: Aging and Spirituality.” Since graduation, she and a D.Min. colleague were invited to teach a summer intensive class, Introduction to Chaplaincy, in 2010 and 2012. She has a strong interest in spirituality and creativity that has led to diverse projects with staff and residents to deal with grief. In addition, a selection of her quilts is hanging in the community as well as in Scheide Hall at Princeton Seminary as part of a rotating exhibit. Her husband, Ben, continues as head of Rare Books and Special Collections at the Princeton University Library, and her two sons are almost finished with college.
