Teresa Blackwell passed from this life into the arms of her heavenly Father on Thursday afternoon April 15, 2021. She was surrounded by her brothers and sisters who are saddened by her passing but have found joy in the knowledge of her homecoming and that she was reunited with her parents and other loved ones.

Through the years, Teresa lived in several locations as she enjoyed different occupations. In the early 2000’s, she moved to Fayetteville, NC.
