My sympathy to Maryanne, John and Pat in the loss of their beloved sister; and to Michelle and Mike and their families. Theresa was a classmate and good friend to me. I fondly remember the times I spent at the Fifer home throughout my teen years. I have not seen Theresa for decades, but see from the photo that she still had that lovely smile. May it comfort you to know that she is with her Savior in perfect health.

Theresa and I went to school together at Wattsburg High. I have wonderful memories of such wonderful times with her in Class and Especially Band. She always lit up a room and her amazing personality made her a joy to be around. I have not seen her in years, but can never and will never forget her.. May you lean on God's shoulders for her will sustain you in your grief.. You will meet again someday! God Bless You All.

I am so sorry to see this. Theresa and I were friends, and graduated together from Wattsburg Area High School. I have many happy memories of Theresa. She was one of the happiest and friendliest people in our class. I can only picture her smiling. Whether in class, at a basketball or football game, at one of our almost weekly parties, or slumber parties, she was so much fun. I will always remember her fondly.

My deepest sympathy to all of Theresa's family. I also graduated with Theresa from Wattsburg, and treasured her wonderful friendship throughout our school days. She was very sweet, always cheerful, and deeply loyal to friends and family. Her smile lit up the room and brightened each day.

We are sincerely sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a loved one under any circumstance. Please be assured that Jehovah God is aware of your pain and he is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). The bible promises us that there will be a resurrection (John 5:28, 29) and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (Revelation 21:4). From that point on we will never have to feel the pangs of death again. We pray these words and scriptures are able to bring you some comfort.
