Teresa Ann Bates (Hansmeyer) passed away on July 23, 2022. Teresa was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to many. Teresa was the daughter of the late Kenneth H. and Bonnie M. (Bynum) Hansmeyer. She was born on December 12, 1961, in Norman, Oklahoma as the third and only daughter. She grew up on the family farm and attended Norman High School. In 1986, Teresa married the love of her life, her husband of thirty-five years, Noale Lynn Bates. They had three children: Jennifer, Dereck, and Ashley, as well as two grandchildren, Natalie and Luna. Over the years, Teresa had several successful careers. She managed an auto parts store, owned a bar, took some time off to be a stay-at-home mom, and then returned to work in the pharmacy at Walgreens for several years. In 2008, she joined her family's plumbing and heating business as the office manager and spent ten years running the office. Teresa had a fiery spirit and a fun-loving personality.
