Teresa Fay Mills of Marion, Kansas, passed away on Saturday, April 25, 2020, after fighting 15 days from a massive brain bleed.
Teresa was born March 19, 1953, to Thurman and Louise Smith in Garden City, Kansas.
She grew up in Arizona, moved to Washington as a retired licensed practical nurse, and then moved to Marion, Kansas, to be closer to family in 2018.
Teresa’s vivacious personality drew her to many enjoyments in life that included nature, hunting, her Yorkie dogs, Billy and Bella, and spending quality time with family and friends.
She was always known as the life of the party and found her calling as the director of Marion Historical Museum.
She would create craft workshops and history scavenger hunts for the children who would stop by the museum. She was honored to be welcomed into the Marion community and has left a footprint for those who miss her.
Go rest in peace, be free, and see you on the other side of the rainbow.
She is survived by: daughter Lisa (and husband Dan) Elliott; grandson Colby Elliott of Buhler, Kansas; brother Ronnie Smith of Hillsboro, Kansas; sisters Barbara (and husband Larry) Smith of Marion, Kansas; Sharon (and husband Vincent) Alvaro of Mesa, Arizona; and Judy (and husband Dennis) Kotterman of Show Low, Arizona; and many nieces and nephews.
Teresa was preceded in death by: father, Thurman, mother, Louise, and sister, Janie.
Burial will be at a later date for family and friends. Yazel-Megli-Zeiner Funeral home is in charge of arrangements.
