Teresa Aguirre was peacefully called home the morning of Friday, March 20th as she entered Heaven’s Gates at the age of 60.

Teresa Olivas was born May 9th, 1959 in Artesia, New Mexico. On July 15, 1993 Teresa married Elias T. Aguirre in Odessa, Texas and together they were blessed with three beautiful children, Angela, Elias Jr. and Natalia. Teresa was an active member at Mid-Cities church in Odessa. Between her family and church, Teresa found time to enthusiastically enjoy a career at the O.C. Sports Center and Career Center. Teresa’s trust in God and His Plan was unfailing. She formed deep bonds with people everywhere she went; not stopping at a bright hello, with a smile that always reached her eyes. She was characterized by trustworthiness, strength, bravery, compassion and had God given listening skills for all who needed an ear. Teresa was a safe place for so many: her husband, children, siblings, countless nieces and nephews, friends, members of her church, those who worked for her, and more. Now, Teresa rests with Our Heavenly Father, God above. It was a gift for those of us on earth to watch the way rooms brightened and souls lifted when she walked in.

Teresa is survived by her parents Manuel and Luisa Olivas; her husband, Elias Aguirre and three children Angela, Elias, and Natalia Aguirre; her stepdaughters Melissa and Dana Aguirre; her five grandchildren; her siblings Manuel Jr. Olivas, Cathy Cantu, Viola McLaughlin, Tomas Olivas, and Oscar Olivas.

She was predeceased by: Mary Frances Olivas (sister in law), Connie Olivas (aunt), Helen Marquez (aunt), Jesse Olivas (uncle), Nolberto Aguirre (father in law).

My heart is heavy this morning, as I discovered that my dear friend Terry had passed away. She and I met at a church in Ft. Worth about 40 years ago when we were in our early 20s. We became friends and have tried to keep up with each other ever since. She was the sweetest, most loving and one of the most faithful women I ever knew. She loved everybody and had a way of making you feel special. Although I'm sad, I rejoice in knowing she is no longer in pain and is resting in the arms of Jesus. My thoughts and prayers are with her sweet parents, Elias and their precious children and grandchildren. Prayers for peace, comfort and precious memories.

Elias, Angela, Elias Jr. and Natalia,
My prayers and condolences go out to you all, at this time. I know Teresa was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, an all around beautiful person (in and out) at whichever role throughout her life.
She was my true friend and other’s, showing us her unconditional love with a tremendous ability that exemplified joy, forgiveness, compassion, happiness and love. She lived her life with Jesus in her heart and as her guide.
I was blessed to have had Teri in my life and for her to have called me friend. I love her and will miss her so very much.

Terry's life is a legacy of loyalty, kindness, and unwavering faith. Her beautiful smile lite up a room and made you smile too. When I think of the memories of our many adventures, it puts a skip in my step, a smile on my face, and joy in my heart! Thank you my friend for never giving up on me, pulling me out of my cocoon (sadness), and allowing God's Spirit to lead you! Terry is an example of courage and strength.
I was blessed to have been a part of her life .....RIP my precious friend until we meet again! I love you and miss you!
I pray God's peace, love, and joy for the Aguirre and Olivas families.....

Terry was in a class of her own...her love and selflessness was simply amazing! She was so good to me. I don't know if I would have made it without her help when I first moved to Fort Worth. She was my rock. I will always love Terry and be very thankful for her.
Her biggest desire was to one day get married and have children, I'm ecstatic that she had the loves of her life with her. I know that she is in heaven and heard, "Well done my faithful Terry!" May God bless and watch over your family.

Teresa truly was a light shining wherever she went. I was privileged to see her at Community Bible Study over the last several years. She fought the good fight and finished the race on earth which called her heavenward. I first met Teresa at Reagan Magnet school where Angela and my daughter Delaine were friends. We will all miss her sweet smile and friendship. Teresa made everyone feel like they were her good friend. Angela, Elias Jr., Natalia and family, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am thinking of you with sympathy, love , and with a prayer that God will bless you every day and keep you in His care. Your mother has left a great legacy of service and love for our Lord Jesus Christ. Her greatest blessing is for you all to follow her example. God bless you at this difficult time.
