Teresa was a breast cancer survivor for many years. She really enjoyed being a mom, taking walks, and participating in zumba. She enjoyed family, friends, and helping others. Teresa attended Liberty Center Baptist Church and had a great spirit and truly appreciated life.

Teresa was fortunate to get to attend some Nascar races and some professional football games and she enjoyed them to the fullest. Teresa's last wish was to travel to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Her wish came true the week of July 8, 2013 when she traveled with her family on a final "family vacation" to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
