Mervenne, Teresa On April 5, 2021, Teresa Jean Mervenne ran into the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Victory is hers as she dances with her Father God in fields of grace. She was preceded in death by her parents Barb and Don Raaymakers, and Paul Patin; and fathers-in-law Fredrick Ressell and David Mervenne Sr. She is survived by her husband of 30 years, David Mervenne; siblings Sherry (Tom) Plaggemars, Mark (Donna) Raaymakers, Bob (Jamie) Raaymakers, Mike Raaymakers, Paula Pierce, and Don (Conny) Raaymakers; mother-in-law, Sandra Mervenne (Ressell); honorary parents Nick and Florence Tartaglione; sister-in-law, Dawn (Dave) Murphy; brother-in-law, Mike (Char) Mervenne; and cherished nieces and nephews. Teresa spent many years as a nanny where she loved and cared for so many children. She then pursued a career as a dental assistant. She loved to fellowship and serve at Resurrection Life Church in so many ways including ushering, food pantry, deacon, welcome center, Christmas program decorations, and so much more. Teresa loved Jesus and expressed it daily to anyone and everyone with her "God-shined" personality and smile.

What a shock to read this yesterday. Teresa was a wonderful person
we got to know when Rose helped with her wedding dress years ago.
Please accept our heartfelt sympathy David for your loss. May God grant you peace and understanding in this sorrowful time.

I would like to express my sympathy to Teresa’s husband, Dave, and the entire Raaymakers Family in the passing of Teresa—yet praise in her “home-going”! May God surround you with His comfort and love during this time! Marcia Holleman- a Mapleview neighbor from the past.

Our love and sympathy goes out to Dave as Teresa is now pain free and in Heaven. We have lost a dear neighbor and friend, but Jesus has received the one who loved Him and shared His love with all of us. We have been blessed to have known her. I am sure that she was smiling when she met her Savior face to face. With our love and prayers, Ken and Wenda.
