Tessa Isabel Damon was born into this world March 11, 2002. Although her life was only six weeks long, her memory will live on forever in the hearts of her family. Tessa Damon died in the early morning hours of Friday, April 26, 2002 at the University of Chicago Hospital following complications from heart surgery.
Tessa knew the love of her family even before she was held in their arms. Knowing of a defect in her heart, her parents made plans for emergency surgery shortly after her birth. While Tessa's heart was repaired to perfection, a kidney deficiency was found and through dialysis, an infection overpowered the doctors' expertise. In the span of a few hours, Tessa left the arms of her parents and was released to her heavenly Father's.
She leaves now her mom and dad, Todd and Pattie Damon, one loving big sister, Emma all of Big Rock, IL, her maternal grandparents, Bruce and Cindy Peck of Lowville, NY, her paternal grandparents, Mike and Laurel Serrurier of Somonauk, IL and Rich and Debbie Damon of Batavia, IL and three great grandmas, Lillian Damon of Aurora, IL and Muriel Hirshey and Minnie Peck both of Upstate, NY.

A funeral service to celebrate her life will be held Monday, April 29 at 10:30 a.m. at the Conley Funeral Home in Elburn. Rev. John Smith, retired pastor of the Sugar Grove Methodist Church will officiate and interment will follow at Riverside Cemetery in Aurora.
