Teresa Sides Cobb, 57, born March 24, 1962 passed away on March 19, 2020. Heaven has gained another angel in Teresa Sides Cobb after a long battle with cancer. She was preceded in death by her father Hugh Goree, and her mother Peggy Jernigan Goree and her brother Allen Goree. Survivors husband David Brackin Cobb, mother in law Joyce Cobb Montgomery, step son Sam Cobb, (Joanie Cobb) grandchildren Samuel Brackin Cobb III, Maddox Elizabeth Cobb and Tyson James Cobb all of Miramar Beach, FL.; first cousins, Jan Hitson Osborne and Connie Caraway who were very close to Teresa growing up together. There were many "adopted kids" that she helped raise and considered family, especially Ginny. Plus many nephews, nieces, sister in laws and her beloved dogs, Frank and Bella.

Teresa owned a nail salon for many years in Montgomery and had hundreds of clients that she cared about deeply. A true Southern lady, Teresa had many talents that most people can only dream of. An avid fisherman, hunter, shooter and gourmet chef, she helped advance the sport of sporting clays in our area and across the southeast. Teresa was an accomplished competitive shooter who could hold her own against any man and won the lady's division on several occasions. Teresa won the Brady Ranch pigeon shoot and also first place at an NRA shooting contest held in Birmingham. She enjoyed teaching people how to shoot while sharing her love for the outdoors. There was nothing she could not do, including operating a tractor. Teresa cherished the memories that she and David made while at beach and recently while on a trip to Wyoming where she was able to take in sights and observe wildlife she had never before seen. Teresa could tell stories that would make anyone laugh until they cried. Teresa was easy to love. Teresa loved to entertain at home and delighted in making other people happy. She also enjoyed making Halloween costumes by hand and won several contests with her work. Teresa belonged to Landmark Church of Christ. Teresa was a member of Seven Bridges Shooting Club and the Lower Wetumpka Shotgun Sports Club.

The family would like to thank the following friends; Paris, Karen, Donna, Linda, Susan, Heather, Miller, Kim and Jeb along with the many friends she made at sporting clay shoots. Caregivers April Gowens, Kristen Harvey and Shelia Wingo are also much appreciated.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Montgomery County Humane Shelter, 1150 John Overton Drive Montgomery, AL 36110

I love you so much, you will always be my mother and the first friend I ever made. You will be so missed and so easy to remember for all the joy and wonderful memories you have brought into my life alone, not to mention the countless others that you have impacted. You will always be so loved not only by me but by countless others. I cant imagine my life with out you being in it, thank you so much for everything, I hope I can make you as proud as you made me to call you my mom. <3

God gives us many blessings. When I look to the stars of the South Montgomery sky I let him know how thankful and blessed I am for giving us Teresa. She always had a special appreciation for God's creations- nature, critters and people to name a few. Some of us are especially blessed to have an "Other Mother" in our lives. I did. My youngest daughter has one too, Teresa. Who but Teresa could call the Humane Society to stay open a bit longer on Christma's Eve while she and Ginny Blue rescued a litter of shivering puppies from a county drain pipe? Who else would offer to cook your main Christmas dish so the dinner wouldn't be a disaster. I can hear here now, "Girl, bring that high dollar piece of meat over to me to cook it for you, you'll ruin that thing!" I smile, laugh and cry when I'm thinking of Teresa. My tears are joyous. God blesses us with angels on earth and Teresa is one of them. Her strength, wit, talent, charm, grace and beauty will forever be in my heart, but most of all her Love. Thank you, God. Thank you, Teresa.

Teresa was the sweetest and most welcoming neighbor I could've had. I remember playing around in her yard with my friends as a kid. And she would always invite us, these dirty, troublemaking kids, some that she didn't even know, inside for dinner and cook us up a marvelous meal and we would talk for hours. She was a charming, gracious woman who gave great advice and always showed she cared. I love her and I admire her spirit and her strength. The neighborhood will feel empty without her.

I didn't get to know Teresa as much as I would have liked, but I know she was a kind and gracious person to me. She had a great smile. I'm so glad she was able to travel and enjoy some of the last months of her life. My prayers to all her loved ones she left behind.

Teresa, I didn’t know you well when we first met at a party that JD and Lanier had. Then David brought you to “The Oyster Bar” and I could tell that you and David belonged together. We had some great talks until everybody quit going, but I know that you made David very happy. Rest In Peace, sweet friend❤️❤️❤️

A beautiful person inside and out. I will miss your beautiful smile, you're quick wit, and of course your Teresaisms as I liked to call them (unique and hilarious sayings to fit all kinds of situations). Teresa welcomed so many of us into her home over the years for amazing meals. There's so much I will miss about my dear friend. Her last few years were certainly difficult but I know her last months were spent surrounded by love. David, please know that we are here for you .
