Teresa Louise Simmons

Sept. 1963 ~ Mar. 2017

Teresa was born in Florence, Oregon to David Lovell and Judith Medeiros and passed away this week at the age of 53.  She will be remembered as a loving person who “adopted” everyone she met into her family.  She enjoyed hosting exchange students, volunteering her time whenever she could help someone and most recently she was proud to donate her quilts to Quilts of Honor.  Teresa, or “Tee Tee” as she was known to everyone, was very active at Windborn Church in Rio Vista and the Rio Vista Moose Lodge.  Her hobbies were numerous and included quilting, camping, going to the lake, cooking for friends and family, gardening, and being outdoors.  Teresa was a strong and independent person and she cared deeply for people.

Teresa is survived by her loving fiancé Randy Foord of Rio Vista; children Letetia (Shayne Robbins) Simmons, Allan (Jennifer) Simmons, Megan (Anthony) Gallegos, Heather Foord and Jennifer Kitchens; siblings Bryan Lancaster, Christine Silveira, Kimberly Medeiros, Shannon Kimball, Shelley Heathman and Jason Lovell; father David Lovell; and fourteen grandchildren.

Teresa was preceded in death by her mother Judith “Sam” Medeiros and brother in law Joseph Faustino Silveira.

Remembrances

  1. There aren’t enough words for how much you have meant to me and my whole family. You were more than a friend to us, and have always been another mom to me. I have so many wonderful memories with you and credit you with my love for country music (and for finally getting me to part my hair on the side like you pestered me to with your ‘Tee sass” for years). 🙂

    Your laughter was infectious and your smile warmed the whole room. I am thankful for all of the heart-to-heart conversations I got to have with you, and will carry you in my heart forever. What a blessing you have been, and I will miss you more than words can say.

    Love you always, Tee.

  2. The times I spent with Teresa were special to me because she was such a warm, loving soul. Heaven has gained more warmth and love with Teresa there. Teresa, thank you for touching my life during our times together, your love and smiles will be missed. God bless you.

  3. Farewell for now, my sweet, sweet friend. So many memories of conversations of our paralleled lives flood my head and heart. You taught me so much Tee about living and loving with no regrets. Your life had so much meaning behind it! You touched so many lives! Thank you for loving my daughters so sweetly. Thank you for loving me. You are so very much missed…..till we meet again!

  4. Tee, this doesn’t seem real. You have been a huge part of my life for over 20 years. I love you so much & I will miss your smile and open arms <3
