Okeechobee - Teresa K. Hopping "Teri" passed away peacefully on April 17, 2018, with her loving husband by her side.
She was born April 28, 1944, in Galesburg, Illinois, to Mildred (Sheridan) Gladfelter. A resident of Okeechobee for 11 years, Teri was a retired awarding-winning insurance agent and a sun worshipper who loved her daughters, grandchildren, boating, shopping, doing the daily crossword, and assembling puzzles. She enjoyed getting the family together for the holidays, especially Christmas, where she made every year better than the last.
Teri showed relentless courage, a zeal for life, and never met a stranger. As a pillar of strength for her family, Teri was a breast cancer survivor and also underwent a double lung transplant on January 31, 2017.
Teri is survived by her husband and the love of her life, Robert "Bob" of Okeechobee; daughters, Shelley Kienzle of Ft Myers, Tracey Maddox (Jeff) of Bonita Springs, Jennifer Saad (Tom) of Upper Arlington, Ohio, and Susan Hopping of Centerville, Ohio; eleven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and many friends.
Private family services will be held at a later date.
