Memories Timeline


  1. Walter and family. I am so sorry for the loss of Theresa. My heart is grieving. I pray you will know God’s strength and peace that only He can give

  2. Grew up with Theresa on Keith St. Many memories of playing and going to school. So sorry for your loss. Theresa was always a kind person. She will be missed.

  3. I grew up down the street from Theresa on Keith St. She was always so nice to me then and any time I would see her later in life. She was always so kind and sweet and always had a smile. So sorry for your loss, she will be missed.

  4. I will be in St. Louis tomorrow to stay with grand kiddos; and, then, watch their evening swim meet.  I will be thinking of you and will try my hardest to get home in time to give all of you great big hugs before 9:00.  I'm SO sad for you, and I LOVE you so much!!!

  5. Walt, Adam, and Alex, I am absolutely heartbroken for you and for ALL of your family!  I have always admired your love and dedication to one another as you have always been such a close-knit family with Theresa adding the joy and glue and food, of course, as your matriarch.  Theresa was beautiful inside and out, always had a smile and a lilting and sweet personality.  It always made my day to see her and get to share a little conversation with her which was, without exception, about her beloved family and grandchildren!  Oh, did she ever light up when she talked about you!  Each of you, along with Theresa, has always had a special place in my heart as I had the privilege of teaching you (you were all CHS Superstars!); and, now, my heart aches for your humongous loss.  Mr. and Mrs. Brewer and Mrs. Redecker, please know you are in my thoughts and on my heart, also.  This is a devastating loss for you, too; especially, as Theresa was so young and vibrant.  My words just cannot convey the  sadness and grief that I have for ALL of you and way beyond!  I hope you can feel my love, hugs, and prayers.  I LOVE YOU!   

  6. Walt and family
    So sorry for your loss. I always loved her smile and red hair. She was such a sweet person. Prayers for your family.
