Condolences Left For Teresa Cox

    Teresa & Ralph were a great couple
    and it wouldn't be complete without
    mentioning him at this time. They
    were always friendly and smiling and
    this completion of their time in our
    lives lives on in fond memories.

    Ginny Spilseth, , ,

    I will always remember how Teresa was so friendly and supportive of me when I started teaching at Belle Valley School. Along with her husband-Ralph-my Superintendent at Belle Valley- would welcome me and my family into their home and made my early years in teaching very enjoyable. Teresa
    always had a smile and words of
    encouragement. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a lady whom I shall never forget.

    Don Rightnowar, Centralia, Illinois, 62801

    Our deepest condolences to Gary, Linda, Jeff and to your families and

    Teresa was a kind, sweet and caring lady and we were proud to have her as
    a part of the extended family.

    Sorry we can't make it to the funeral, but health matters are a deterrent
    to travel.
