  1. I met Teresa in April of 2019 when my Mom was a resident at Presbyterian Manor. Mom and I shared a table with Teresa for lunch and supper most days and enjoyed many stories and laughs and became dear friends. Mom would always ask if our friend was going to be there. During meals we would often burst out in song to the oldies music being played on the tvs. We had such good times! When Mom passed away last Nov., I continued to visit Teresa usually on Saturday evenings, and spent Christmas and New Years Eve together. Our last visit was early March because of Covid. I did get to talk to her by phone occasionally and I treasure the letter she wrote me. I loved Teresa and I know she loved me and Mom. I’ve missed visiting her these past 6 months and will continue to miss my friend. She loved her Lord and
    I’ll always think of her when I hear her favorite song, How Great Thou Art. My deepest sympathy to Jeremy and Jennifer and their families in their time of loss.

  2. I met Teresa in 1975 when we were both students at Emporia. She was one of the most charming people I’ve ever known and we became good friends. Sadly, I’ve fallen out of touch over the past 2 decades but I remember her and our college days with fondness. My condolences to her children.

  3. You’re in my thoughts, Rick & Bill & all of your family at the death of Teresa. You guys are a terrific family & always a lot of fun to be around. I’ve never forgotten the time you invited me to join you at the lake.
