Teresa was born on February 3, 1976, in Bismarck, where she was raised. She graduated from Century High School and took away from her education a passion for books.
She loved to read; if there wasn’t a book in her hand, one wasn’t far away. She leaves behind a donatable collection of romance novels, mysteries and who-done-its. Teresa would bring along a book to appointments or even just trips to the store to catch another chapter whenever she could. She also loved to watch movies and tv shows and never got scared off by a scary flick. It wouldn’t be uncommon to find Teresa channel surfing to find the perfect show or movie to knit to, a skill she picked up from her grandma. She liked to do crossword puzzles.
Teresa is survived by her mother; two sisters, Sheryl Jatta and Rose (David) Hovda, Rose’s mother-in-law, Marlene Hovda; two nephews; one niece; a half-sister; two half nieces; one half nephew; her aunts and uncles; and her grandmother, Elaine Perkins.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents.
