Teresa Giovanna Obst (Terri)


Wow, words cannot express how beautiful she looked, that picture really captures and says everything. 
There is nothing in this world worse than loosing a Mother.  It is such a deep sorrow that no one can tell you ahead of time.   I cannot write this  without crying so deeply.  I  not only cry for the lose of my Aunt but the pain that you and Regina are feeling with your Mother gone.   I also feel so deeply for your Father, I cannot imagine all those years together and she is gone.   He must have such a hole in his heart that words cannot describe.   I pray for all of you everyday.
Just know that we all of love you, and cannot stop thinking of you. Remember that we are here for you if you need us.  We know that you need time alone to deal with your lose but we are there in spirit.
Fred, Sandra, Melissa and Matthew

I feel the loss greatly, remembering our years as sisters-in-law, the years when we raised our families near each other, the aspirations we had for our families, the bond of kinship that cannot be broken. My thoughts are with the family in their loss and in their memories.Lovingly, Lu

Teresa, kind-hearted and gentle, firm but loving, psychic and spiritual, truly caring of those around her. She loved her family well and we will miss her warmth. Fly free to God, Aunt Terri. I love you.

My Sister was a very special person to me. From young on she was a "second mother" to me. I will miss her smile, her scolds and calls.

Terri was manager of the Villas in 1973 when I moved in. She was a delight, very friendly, and very giving. I'm sorry that she has passed away. God bless the family.
