Teresa Heitman, 57
Imagine a woman so brave and so strong who passed away on a cold November day. She inspired all who knew her throughout her life and during her war against glioblastoma (brain cancer). Teresa Lynn Heitman, age 57, of Wisconsin Dells, Wis., left us on Nov. 23.
Memorial services will be 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27, at the Roseberry's Funeral Home in Friendship, Wis. Pastor Terri Skildum will officiate. Visitation will be 4 p.m. until the time of service on Wednesday, at Roseberry's Funeral Home.
A Celebration Of Life Party will also be held from 2-6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, at the Cedar Shack in Adams, with a program at 3 p.m.
Teresa was born Dec. 11, 1955, in Portage, Wis., to Robert R. and Lorna (Kurth) Heitman.
She graduated from Adams-Friendship High School in 1974. She was an assistant manager at the Winnebago Gift Shop for 32 years. She was then employed as a teller at the Bank of Wisconsin Dells.
Imagine a woman who made a difference to so many. She loved everything about life. One of her biggest joys was riding on the back of a Harley on a warm summer's day. Her family and many friends were always close to her heart. Many things brought her happiness including raising German Shepard's (all animals really), her Sunshine Boy, the Green Bay Packers, UWRF Falcon Hockey, bling, shopping, teddy bears, tractors, flags, bacon, pie, Pirate Shots, and her Garden of Life.
She didn't just go to the party she was the party "Love you more!" Imagine Teresa!
Teresa was preceded in death by mother, Lorna Heitman (1988); grandparents, Martin and Elsie Heitman, and Clarence and Belva Kurth; sister-in-law, Diane Heitman; and aunt, Carol Edwards.
