Obituary of Teresa Helton
Teresa Helton, age 64, of Monroe, went home to be with the Lord on July 30, 2022. She was born on August 6, 1957, daughter of the late Ned and Rosie Cherry. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Ned Cherry Jr. and Michael Cherry Sr. Teresa was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Never missing a moment to give a hug and tell you how much she loved you. Caring for the ones she loved was the center of her world. The only greater love she had was her love for Jesus Christ. She lived passionately for her faith and leading her family in His word. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, crafting, playing all types of fun games with her family (including beating Daddy in Word Battle) and of course, shopping. In knowing her, you know she always left a little sparkle wherever she went and she will forever be missed. She is survived by her husband of 46 years, Teddy Helton; her children, Jennifer Austin (Travis), Terrie Deese (Lynn), Ted “Bookie” Helton (Colleen), Josh Helton (Lauren) and Trey Helton (Taylor); her grandchildren, Tiffany, Kaitlyn, Nellie, Jonathan, Gabbie, Teddy III “T3”, Tara, Kireigh, Joey, Hailee, Brawley, Ryker, Lucas, Trenton and Emersyn; her sister, Rebecca Kelso (Bob). The family will receive friends from 11:00am until 1:00pm Wednesday, August 3, 2022 at McEwen Funeral Home of Monroe. A service to celebrate her life will begin at 1:00pm in McEwen Funeral Home’s Colonial Chapel. Interment will follow in Lakeland Memorial Park. McEwen Funeral Home is honored to be serving the Helton family.
