Teresa Fortune Garner

Teresa, such a joyful, happy person, spent her favorite times with her family and friends. She loved animals, especially her cats, and undoubtedly deserved “Nanny of the year” for all the recitals, pageants, and ballgames she attended and video games she played with her grands, as well as going mud riding on the weekend. A native of Pike County, Teresa was employed at Troy Cleaners for a little while and at Park Memorial Pre-school too.  She loved her family so much and she will be missed by all.
