    We were so saddened to hear of Teresa's passing. She was a very kind, generous, caring, supportive, and compassionate friend and co-worker. We enjoyed trips with her to watch the Texas Rangers play or to have fun at a Jimmy Buffett or George Strait concert. Teresa will truly be missed by everyone who knows her. Her friendship was a gift to us all. I am comforted to know that she is now with her sweet precious Julianne. My prayers and condolences go out to Ronnie and her family. Rest in Peace, sweet lady!

    Dear Ronnie,

    My heart is breaking for you. I last talked to Teresa about 2 weeks ago. It is hard to believe that we have known each other for 40 years. Our daughters being born 2 days apart bonded us together. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Peace be with you, my friend. Love, Chris

    My aunt Teresa was truly an amazing woman with a big heart for serving people. She always thought of others before herself. I'll never forget all the times she took care of my mom Dian. It was a precious gift to our family. The most wonderful thing about Teresa was her love for Jesus and I'm thankful she will spend eternity with Him! I will miss her so much on this earth but look forward to seeing her again someday. 🙏

    One of my favorite people. It was a privilege to work with Teresa. She was professional, personable, and above reproach in all she did. La Vega ISD is better for her devoted service, and all of us who worked with her are better for the experience.

    I loved our time working together at La Vega. You always made me smile and you taught me so much about school budgeting. I am rejoicing in the fact that you have Julianne in your arms in the presence of Jesus.
