Teresa Anne Niggemeyer passed away on September 14, 2016, in the loving presence of her family and friends. Teresa was born on March 12, 1958 in San Jose, CA and grew up in Spokane. She was the fourth child and first daughter of Joan and Bill Niggemeyer. Teresa was a joyful, deeply caring and assertive woman, overflowing with love and a playful spirit of adventure. In all of her actions, Teresa strove to make the world a kinder, gentler place. She is predeceased by her parents and her brother Timothy, and survived by eight devoted brothers and sisters: Mike (Joan), Daniel (Carolyn), John, Catherine, Stephe, Anne, Bunny (Pat), and Patrick (Sophia); and by her very special nieces and nephews: Tess, Alycia, Sean, Ben, Kevin, Jordan, Jacob, Nic, Phinnian, Riley, Lachlan, Alexa, Michael, Alexis, Jasmyn, and Samantha. A memorial service for Teresa will take place on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 2 p.m., at Seattle Prep on N. Capitol Hill in Seattle, followed by a reception.

I went to high school with Teresa and spent many happy times with her. A true gentle soul. We will always miss her and she will be forever in my heart. My prayers are with you all during this aching time. God is with you and so am I.

I went to Gonzaga with Teresa; so sad to hear this news. What a spirit for justice she had!
