Teresa Jean (Mosier) Sweeney, 48, of Palmer, Alaska, passed away and went to be with the Lord on July 2, 2015, at her home as a result of cancer; she was under hospice care in her home and was surrounded by all her children and husband. Teresa was born on Sept. 15, 1966, in Madison, Ohio, to Herbert Clayton and Wanda Lee (Hand) Mosier. She was the second of four children. She married Carl Sweeney on Oct. 29, 1983; they were married for close to 32 years and had five children. Teresa spent more than half of her life in Alaska, and loved serving the Lord Jesus and spending time with her family. We know she is in Heaven and is no longer in pain. She was a member of the Manna Baptist Church of Wasilla, Alaska, as well as Independent Baptist Church of Anchorage, Alaska, Rome Baptist Temple in Rome, Ga., and Faith Independent Baptist Church in Florida. She had a great testimony and was loved by anyone who knew her. She was a very sweet Christian lady who dedicated her life to serving the Lord and taking care of her family. She loved hiking and going on walks with her family, as well as photography and collecting Coca Cola memorabilia. Teresa's main focus was keeping her family happy, and she was the very Best Mom, Best Wife, Best MaMaw and Best Friend to all who knew her. We look forward to seeing her again. Teresa is survived by her husband, Carl Sweeney of Palmer; and five children, Matthew Sweeney of Palmer, Rebecca (Sweeney) Forss of Wasilla, Hannah Sweeney of Wasilla, Bethany (Sweeney) Poelman of Palmer and Virginia Sweeney of Palmer. She is also survived by one great-grandchild, Autumn Forss. She is survived by her three siblings, Curtis Mosier of North Carolina, Melinda Pennington of Ohio, and Paul Mosier of Ohio. Her memorial service was conducted at Manna Baptist Church in Wasilla by Pastor Steve Cardin on July 8, 2015. Arrangements were cared for by Valley Funeral Home, Wasilla Chapel.
