  5. I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Teresa. I knew Teresa from the college and loved her dearly. We shared the same birth date, only she was 10 years younger. What a beautiful person she was. I’m sure she will be sorely missed by all of her family and friends. My sincerest condolences go out to her family. Rest in peace my dear friend……………love you!

  6. Teresa was Janet Becker’s yoga class a few years back. She was one of the nicest and friendliest people I’ve ever met. I use to tease her about looking so young she couldn’t be much out of high school. We both went on to other things, and then the only time I saw her was out in restaurants like the Port City Bakery where she always had a ready smile, and a pleasant hello! I am saddened to hear of her passing. People like this make me a believer in the old saying, only the good die young. She obviously left us long before her time, but maybe she needed to go to wherever we go in the heavens to bring a smile to others there. RIP.

  7. Sadly, I just learned of the disheartened news of Teresa’s passing . She will be missed by her children, grandchildren, and her numerous friends, acquaintances, and other family members. We used to play Tennis together in our earlier years and had fun belonging to a dinner club. She so loved her children and I know she will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her. May you R.I.P. Amen…….

  8. Teresa was a special person her whole life. We were friends in High School and only got to see each other a few times when I was in Oswego. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
    I know she is going to be dearly missed.
