I had the privilege of knowing Teresa from living in Honey Brook and hanging out at the Fillman house with her sister Sheila. Teresa had the biggest smile and was always willing to go beyond with help. She fought a courageous battle against cancer for 5 years and did it with compassion, love, tears, family, friends and alot of hope. Teresa was a friend that I am glad to have the joy to have known. May God be with you Teresa and I am thankful you are at peace now.

I know Teresa from her time at Penn Vet. In addition to being a coworker, I considered her a friend. She was such a wonderful person. Her door to her office was always open. She was always there if you needed anything or even just needed to talk. Penn Vet is a better place because of people like Teresa. I'm am so sorry that she is gone. Rest easy T❤
