Teresa Jane Taylor
July 28, 1948 – November 14, 2020
Teresa “Teri” Taylor, 72, peacefully passed on Saturday, November 14, 2020. She was born July 28, 1948 in Bakersfield, CA to the late Harmon and Viola Fansler.
She was a 1966 graduate of Castle High School where she enjoyed playing in the band and being a majorette. She then became an x-ray technician and relocated to Baytown, TX where she worked at Gulf Coast Hospital. Later in her career, she became a lab technician and worked for Exxon Oil Company. After retiring from Exxon, Teri relocated back to Newburgh, IN to be with her family. She enjoyed teaching piano and playing the organ for church services when needed. She loved to read and was an avid animal lover, rescuing many pets throughout her life.
Teresa was blessed to have special friends who formed a “committee” to assist her, especially during this last year: Nancy Bogner of South Dakota, Allan Taylor Russell of Florida, and EJ and Diane Smith of Newburgh.
She is survived by her sister Janice Gash; two nephews, Justin Gash (Andrea) and Ryan Gash, and great-nephew, Christian Gash.
A private entombment will be at Park Lawn Cemetery and Mausoleum.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Warrick Humane Society, 5722 Vann Road, Newburgh, IN 47630. Condolences may be made online at www.AlexanderNewburghChapel.com.

So sorry for your loss. We spent a lot of time together in high school in band and I rode horses when I visited at her home. Janice was in my brother Roger's class. She will be greatly missed.

I'm so sorry to learn of Theresa's death. She was my piano teacher for a few years and I learned so much from her! We shared a lot of laughs and generally had a fun time at my lessons. Although I lost contact with her over the last several years, I will always remember her most fondly. My sincere condolences to everyone in her family.
