Obituary: Teresa Ann Tesnow-Nemeth

In loving memory of Teresa Ann Tesnow-Nemeth. Beloved mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and aunt. Teresa died Dec. 2, 2016 soundly in her sleep at the age of 52.

Teresa was born Feb. 18, 1964, in the town of Sister Bay, WI, the daughter of Donald and Dorothy (Grasse) Tesnow.  Teresa graduated from Gibraltar High School in 1982. She attended Nursing School for a while and worked as a nurse’s aide for several years at Scandinavian Nursing Home and loved caring for her patients and was loved by the residents and staff. She spent most of her life as a homemaker.

Teresa enjoyed watching movies, and the Packers on Sundays, she loved all animals, including her cat Lilly and all things tropical.  Most of all, she had a thirst for God, family, and friends.  No matter the situation she was always able to love with all of her being, you could see and feel that anytime you spoke with or met with her. Her love truly knew no bounds, and she will be dearly missed.
