Teresa Ann Sheldon was born May 13, 1976, to Wayne and JoAnn (Schnabel) Sheldon. Teresa was a daughter, loving mother, sister, friend, and aunt.  Teresa had an infectious funny spirit and a strong will to fight and kick cancer’s butt.  She enjoyed most spending time with family and friends. She surrounded herself with God’s love and faith and enjoyed her fellowship time at the church.  If talking was a sport, Teresa had it mastered!  She loved all things gardening and taking care of her lawn and flowers. 

Teresa’s greatest accomplishment was raising her beautiful daughter, Olivia.  She loved watching Olivia’s Color Guard performances with the Brandon Valley Band. Teresa was even able to join a special performance with Olivia’s Color Guard. 

Teresa last worked at PAI and had many friends in her workforce.

She sincerely appreciated the love and support of the many nurses, doctors, and techs at Mayo Clinic, Sanford Hospital, and Ava’s House that cared so lovingly for her during her two years fighting cancer.  She would like to extend a special thank you to each of these amazing people she considered family.   

Teresa is survived by her (daughter) Oliva Green, (sister) Katie Meeker (husband Kelly Meeker), (niece and nephew) Kellen and Kora Meeker, (parents) Wayne and JoAnn Sheldon, and uncles and aunts. 

Teresa is preceded in death by her grandparents, Roy and Glorena Schnabel, Ralph and Beverly Sheldon, and her uncle Dennis Schnabel
