Teresa-Jeanenne Ball, 37, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 10, 2011, of natural causes at her home in West Linn, Ore.

A viewing will take place at Janssen's Evergreen Memorial Chapel, 737 E Street, from 5:30-7 p.m. on Friday, June 17, 2011.

A visitation will be Saturday, June 18, 2011, at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, 2111 Muldoon Road, at 11 a.m. with a service to follow at noon.

Teresa-Jeanenne was born June 18, 1973 in Anchorage. Many knew her and saw her grow up at Mexico in Alaska Restaurant; this was her home.

For many who loved her, she was known as "TJ," a pure spirit who loved many things. TJ touched a lot of hearts with her love, smile, compassion and loyalty.

TJ was a "rock" for many people; she always listened and consoled you without judgment.

TJ expressed a great passion for things she believed in. A person always knew what she was thinking because she expressed it with honesty and love.

TJ will always live in our hearts.

TJ is survived by her mother, Maria-Elena Ball; her cousins that she was closely raised with, Gema Nunez, Carlos Cardoso, Ester Duckworth and Marisa Cardoso; nieces and nephews, Audryana Belisle, Ashley Fox, Koby Herrell, Braylon Herrell and Adalia Duckworth; and many other extended relatives throughout Mexico and Texas.

She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Maria Minerva Ortiz; her aunt, Maria-Teresa Correa; and her uncle, Joseph Anthony Correa.

Arrangements are with Janssen's Evergreen Memorial Chapel, www.janssenfuneralhomes.com.
