Theresa Johnson "Teri" Leinbach Obituary
Theresa "Teri" Johnson Leinbach Charleston - Theresa "Teri" Johnson Leinbach, 54, ended her three year battle with leukemia on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 surrounded by her family. Her last case has been won. She has fought a good fight. She has finished the race. She has kept the faith. She has attained her reward. She has moved on to a happier place. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018 in Northbridge Baptist Church, 1160 Sam Rittenberg Blvd, at 11:00 a.m. Family and friends may attend a visitation Friday evening, May 18,2018 in J. HENRY STUHR INC., WEST ASHLEY CHAPEL, 3360 Glenn McConnell Pkwy from 6:00 p.m. TO 8:00 p.m. Teri was the mother of Taylor Mackenzie Leinbach and the daughter of Theresa Taylor Johnson and the late Benjamin Earle Johnson both of Charleston, SC. She is also survived by her brother, Preston West Johnson, her sister-in-law, Rhonda Murray Johnson, and her nephew and niece, Preston West Johnson, Jr., and Alexa Lanier Johnson. In addition to her family, Teri is survived by countless loyal and fun-loving friends who loved her well and supported her in innumerable ways throughout her battle with leukemia. Teri was a 1982 graduate of Middleton High School where she proudly served as class President. She graduated from the College of Charleston in 1985 with a BS in Business, and she obtained her Juris Doctorate Degree from The University of South Carolina School of Law in 1991. She was a member of the South Carolina Bar Association and was a lifelong member of Northbridge Baptist Church where she provided legal counsel and served as a youth Sunday school teacher for many years. On March 28, 2018 she was appointed as a magistrate judge for Charleston County. This appointment was a source of great joy for her in her final months. Teri lived life fully prior to her illness. She was passionate about her career, time spent with friends, traveling, kayak or boating trips to the Morris Island Light House, and her pets. She also parented and fought cancer sacrificially for her 'Baby Bird', Mackenzie. She was beautiful, spontaneous, fashionable, funny, and compassionate. She had a soft spot for the underdog as demonstrated by her many selfless acts of kindness extended to others. She was a bright spot to all who knew her, and she will be dearly missed. For those wishing to make memorial contributions in lieu of flowers the family wishes that they be made to The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston, 81 Gadsden Street, Charleston, SC 29401 or The South Carolina Chapter of , 941 Houston Northcutt Blvd #203, Mt.
