I am so sorry for your loss. My name is Grace George and I had a very short time to get to know Teresa. She was a hard worker and enjoyed her job and the school very much.
Since her illness, I have heard many wonderful stories from the "lunch ladies" and Alma School employees. I have learned she loved to laugh, make others love and was a very generous person.
She will be missed in the Alma School District.

Teresa always had a smile. She loved with all her heart. When she talked about her family, you could see the joy you brought her. She will be missed by everyone who was blessed to know her. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you strength and comfort to get you through this most difficult time.
