Teres and John were married 45 years. Teres retired from TRW Semiconductors as a Quality Control Inspector after 23 years of service.
Teres was a survivor of the Holocaust, having survived in the Ohrdruf Labor Camp in Leipzig, Germany.
Teres enjoyed sewing, crocheting and gardening. Her green thumb, true to her maiden name Kertesz gardener produced a beautiful garden of lilies and roses. Her lovely smile, her laughter and antics with her grandchildren will be missed by her family and friends, but we are at peace knowing she walks among the gardens of Heaven.
Love you Nana!
