Heart Breaking News Our deepest sympathy to Monique, Michelle and Marc, So many fond memories of Teri and her family at the Greenbrier Ice Skating Rink in Parma Hts ❤️ Love & Hugs Cathryn Stanbridge and Family
My heart goes out to Monique, Michelle and Marc. Teri was a true friend. Even though we didn’t see each other as much as we used to Teri would always text or call me on birthdays, holidays and just because. I will remember her love of the Cleveland Indians and the games we attended together. I will remember her love of her students and her comaraderie with every teacher she ever met. How could I ever forget all that food at her New Years Day Party! I know that she always loved these get togethers. She was a supporter of a children’s theatre group — Upstage. We often attended the chldren’s plays together. We ventured out once a year to the annual cajun party at a friend’s house in Euclid. Yes, lots of good memories. She will certainly be missed.
Our first connection–She and I sitting together in the baseball stands watching our sons on the same baseball team back in Middleburg Hts so long ago— and our girls also the same age and friends at school . Our paths crossed and we had so much in common. We were both teachers — and we discovered that we both had been in the same landmark Major Work program in our own elementary school years in the Cleveland School System ( she on the east side and I on the west side of town ) . It was sad to say goodbye when my family relocated out of state — but we never lost contact and maintained our promise to get together on our summer trips back to Ohio . Our last time to meet and talk in person was too long ago but I followed on FB and in our Christmas card notes her travels and adventures with her dancing group of wonderful friends. I am so sad this morning and I share prayers and tears with her family and friends.
The Rosche family was honored to have known and become friends with Teri and the whole Rabic family.
I lived in the ranch next to Teri for many years before I moved to South Carolina. She was a wonderful person and a great neighbor. We did keep in touch via text and Facebook. She will be missed. So sorry for your lose.
I knew Terri through my sister becky loas. I also knew her through the people at Tremont who worked with her. I was going back to school when I was in my late 40s and I met Terri. I was unsure of what I was doing and she said you could do this. She certainly did. Terri was a lot of fun. I went to some happy hours with her and my sister. we spent New Year’s Eve together a few times. Terri had a great laugh.She is obviously missed by a lot of people and was a special person. So sorry for your loss
Sending condolences to Teri’s family and friends Pauline, Sheila and I were inseparable and best friends in junior high. Only recently were we able to reconnect, something I will truly treasure, and we were able to zoom last fall! Sorry to have lost her so soon.
Pauline was a great gal, a nice person and a talented teacher. I have fond memories of her laughter and humor. God bless the family. My life is enriched from having known her.
