Teresa Ann Chaudoin Horn was born on February 8th, 1958 in Tahlequah, OK, the daughter of Benks and Geneva (Dause) Chaudoin. She graduated from Tahlequah High School and began the first of two degrees, the first being in Social Work the second in Education. It was while working as a waitress at the Sirloin Stockade she would meet and marry her best friend, Danny Horn. Upon her sister introducing them, Danny asking her out for a date, they promptly ran out of gas on the way home. In spite of the rough beginning, they married on October 9th, 1987 in Tahlequah, OK, after eight months and the rest was wonderful chemistry. They were blessed with a daughter, Dani Horn-Haggard, who was her pride and joy and greatest accomplishment in life. Teresa was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, stepmother, grandmother and educator. She loved her students and would go to the ends of the earth for them. When she wasn’t working, she was solving murder mysteries on TV, drinking Diet Mountain Dew, listening to Elvis sing, or watching OU do their magic. She was stubborn and never gave in when she set her mind to it, and would do whatever was necessary to help her students, family or friends succeed. There were never any strangers in Teresa’s life, and you could always confide in Teresa, she had a caring heart and was always there to listen. Her smile was enough to light up the darkest corner, and her laugh was irresistible. If her grandchildren were playing ball, or in any activity, she was their biggest fan, usually in the loudest hat! Her sister and her daughter were her favorite running buddies, and together they would go shopping, eat out, and any number of other activities. A Christian by faith, she and her family were members of the Calvary Assembly Of God, making church dinners and serving in the Missionettes, and involved in Ladies Ministry. Her health had been difficult recently, and the Lord called this wise and wonderful woman home from her many labors on Friday, August the 28th, 2020 in Tahlequah, OK. She was 62 years old and leaves behind the many lives she has touched in the short time she was with us.
She is preceded by her grandparents, Curtis and Ollie (Blackhaw) Chaudoin, and Edward Carmack and Odra Dause, her parents, Benks and Geneva Chaudoin, and her beloved uncle Jack Chaudoin.
Her memory will be lovingly tended by her husband Danny Horn of the home in Park Hill, her daughter, Dani Horn-Haggard and husband Marcus of Tahlequah, OK, and three step children, Cheryl Horn and companion Bill Campbell of Tahlequah, OK, Janna Horn and companion Scotty Thompson of Tahlequah, OK and Brandon Horn and wife Tiffany of Ft. Gibson, OK. She leaves her sister, Judy Carroll and husband Danny of Tahlequah, OK and her seven step grandchildren, Derrick Campbell and wife Morgan of Milwaukee, WI, Taylor Osborn and Richie Osborn both of Tahlequah, OK, Kaylee Williams of Ft. Gibson, OK, Talon Osborn and Brynlee Coppin both of Tahlequah, OK, and Kyra Horn of Ft.Gibson, OK. She also leaves one nephew, Rodney Carroll and wife Danielle of McKinney, TX and one niece, Rhonda Carroll of Tahlequah, OK, as well as many cousins, and a host of students, friends, and church family far too numerous to mention.

I last saw Teresa and her family a few months back celebrating a family member’s birthday. She was still the same as when we worked together... fun, pleasant and kind.. always positive !
I will miss her in knowing she is no longer with us but so thankful that she has reached the ultimate goal we all strive for. She has now made heaven her home.

I worked with Teresa at Tahlequah High School for years until my retirement in 2018. We shared many mornings and meetings. She was always taking care of her students. She will be missed by many. Prayers for her family and friends. God Bless her soul!

I went to school with Teresa from 1st grade thru High school- we had some fun times together. I visited with Teresa and her parents many times. Benks, Teresa's dad was a principal & teacher at Moodys school back in the day, where I grew up at Moodys store. Teresa was a very sweet person & we shared a fondness for Elvis. I remember her bedroom being plastered with pictures of Elvis when we were in High school. Heaven has called another angel home. My deepest condolences to the family. Elizabeth Wilcox Hamilton

Had the honor and pleasure to get to teach special education alongside Teresa for 26 years. She was my prayer warrior right down the hall. Besides getting to teach with her, we were classmates of the THS Class of ‘76. Loved her so much and will miss her even more. Prayers for the family.

I went to school with Teresa from when she started 1st grade & me & the other girls would fight to have her sit by us! One day several years ago I went to McDonald's in Tahlequah and I was in the drive through & I heard a sweet laugh & knew immediately it was her! Had been gone a long time from Tahlequah but I still remembered her laugh! I sure did love that girl!
Prayers for the family!

Had the pleasure of attending church with Teresa and her family for years. Such a lovely sweet young woman and so loving! To see her shine these many years in teaching is not a surprise. Her heart was so open to the many students, friends and family. Prayers for her loved ones and rejoicing in her home going to Jesus.
