Teresa Kay Hampton Connell

Teresa Hampton Connell of Cape Girardeau, MO, passed away Tuesday, October 18, 2022, in Bonne Terre surrounded by her loving family. She was born November 20, 1966, in Poplar Bluff to Louis and Madelyn (Atkinson) Hampton. Teresa resided in Cape Girardeau for a majority of her life.

Teresa was very talented when it came to art. She was the President of her class in high school and was awarded the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts Scholarship based off her work. She was the sole winner for the state out of many applicants.

Teresa earned a degree in graphic design. She worked at the Southeast Missourian, KFVS12, and went on to start up her own graphic design company which she ran over 20 years. She was very hard working and went on to open two other businesses. When Teresa set her mind to something, she always accomplished it and found a way to be successful in everything she did.

She was passionate about traveling, collecting unique antique items, going to wineries, and animals. Teresa found joy in quality time with her father and taking on numerous home remodeling projects with him. You could often find her at an art show, sitting on the patio of her favorite restaurant, or enjoying time with family.

Teresa was preceded in death by her sister, Diana Hampton, and her grandparents, Paul and Opal Hampton and Loren and Polly Atkinson.

She is survived by her parents, Louis and Madelyn Hampton, significant other; Sanford Goldberg, her daughters; Taylor (and Darian) Lawrence, and August Connell, three grandchildren, her sister; Cindy Hampton, niece; Colleen Crader, nephew; Cole Schaumburg.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Teresa’s birthday, Sunday, November 20, 2022.  The location will be determined at a later date.

Arrangements are under the directions of CZ Boyer & Son funeral home Bonne Terre, MO.
