I’m so saddened to hear of Theresa’s passing! I worked with her at Ristance but she was also a member of our small group Music & More!! We had much fun rehearsing music, puppet skits, poetry, stories and dance to share in local nursing homes and assisted livings! Those were great times spent together!! My thoughts and prayers are with her family!!
Miles Warner says
My thoughts go out to the family. Teresa and I got to know each other a little from our stint as coworkers at Pretzels and when we visited the hotel she worked at previously. She was always very kind and helpful. And believe she always had a witty comment at the right time. She will be missed.
Marjorie Ecker says
Teresa was a wonderful friend to me after I moved back to the area about four years ago. I will miss her terribly. Along with Jerry , Becky, Travis and the boys, they have been so helpful to me. My friend will get to see Jesus, RIP my friend.
