Aunt Teresa is my great aunt. Aunt Teresa always loved cats. She had a particular cat named Prissy. Prissy and I didn’t get along because I was just a kid and she wasn’t fond of children. One day I went down to the basement to check out her kittens because she was outside or so I thought. Well I was playing with the kittens when I heard a low growl— I looked up and lo and behold there was Prissy. I then ran toward the stairs with her in chase. I ran up the stairs and ended up climbing a metal pole. I yelled for Aunt Teresa who came and rescued me. We always had a great laugh about that over the years. She will be missed.

Teresa was my aunt and for many years we lived within 5-10 minutes of each other and my grandmother and granddaddy (her parents) lived right up the stree t from her and Mickey,Renee and Charles. She was more like my sister than my aunt. She was my confidant when I was in my preteens and teens. I could talk to her about things that I didn’t think I could talk to my mom. She and Mickey taught my to drive in a 1949 car and Teresa took me
to take my drivers test. At that time my mom was sick and couldn’t do a lot. When I was in nursing school working on weekend to earn money, they let me use the 1949 car to go back and forth to work. (I think that was the year). Tom and I dated at their home sometimes because we did not have much money. later we became good friends good friends as well as relatives and shared many good times. We cooked fruitcake at Christmas time. I think the last time was 5 yrs ago. One thing stands out for me - we did not always agree but you always kne exactly where you stood with Teresa. I loved her and I will truly miss her. I know she is in heaven.

My great Aunt Teresa..... she was definitely a GREAT and AWESOME aunt and person!! I thought she was so awesome and always wanted to be like her growing up! I was always so excited when either she came to visit or we had family reunions and I would get to see her. She always had a way of making me laugh!! I remember when I was pretty young how she used to show me she could still touch her toes while standing up. I’d always make her do it and then do it with her.
She was always laughing, joking, and genuinely happy. Such a beautiful person inside and out!! She definitely made such an impact on me and was one of my favorite people to be around!! You couldn’t help but but smile being around her!! I looked up to her as a little girl and will always strive to be the kind of person she was! She wasn’t just my great aunt, she was a GREAT aunt and friend!!
I love her tremendously and will never forget the impact she has had on my life! I hope that I can be at least half the woman she was!
I love you Aunt Teresa, and I’ll keep touching my toes lol!!!

Teresa is also survived by my Dad and the love of her life, Dewey "Buddy" Hart. They were constant companions for the past 20 years. They loved to travel together and attend dances and socialize with their many friends. They loved each other immensely, and when one or the other was in the hospital or nursing home, if often brought the staff to tears as they saw how much they cared for one another. They loved one another unselfishly, and only had each other's best interest at heart. He has been quite ill the past few weeks, but until then he visited her on a regular basis, which always brought a smile to her face, even on her worst days. He will miss her terribly but takes some comfort in knowing that her suffering is final over. I was also Teresa's neighbor. I shared their journey on a daily basis. She was a big part of both my Dad's and my life and she will be missed.

Our thoughts & prayers are with you Renee & Charlie. Aunt Teresa was such a loving Aunt. We shared the love of flowers...she could grow anything. I will always remember her when I look out into my yard at the flowers growing that she shared with me. Rest in eternal peace...until we see you again.
