Teresa Christine Dauer

July 15th 1960 - May 14th 2013

T.C. bravely fought breast cancer since 1989, having finally passed on May 14th surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Redwood City, raised in Belmont, T.C. was a permanent resident of San Carlos. She attended Mercy High School in Burlingame, College of San Mateo, and later Long Beach State. T.C. was an escrow officer in San Mateo County, having earned a reputation as one of the best in the business.

T.C. loved nothing more than family and friends, and a glass of good Chardonnay, laughing and telling stories, making sure all were having a good time. She was kind as she was funny, and T.C. was hilarious. She was generous as she was compassionate, always giving to family and friends, even to those she barely knew. She had the biggest heart, the loudest laugh, the warmest smile. Those who met her just once never forgot her. She impacted so many lives with her loving spirit and acts of charity.

T.C. was a loving mother to Rachel, devoted wife to Brad, a great sister to Mike and Chris, and adored daughter to Mario and Bev. Her loving animals were Buddyjack, Scats, and the unforgettable Bogey.

A celebration of T.C.'s life will be held at the Elks Lodge in San Mateo at 11am on Tuesday, May 28th, 2013. Location: 229 West 20th Ave, San Mateo, 94403.
