Teresa Dene Rodeback, 63, was called home February 26, 2015, she was summoned to return surrounded by love, and in the care of her family. Teresa was born December 22, 1951, in Ogden, Utah, to Orvin Edmand Rodeback and Ivene Packer.
Teresa was never married and did not have children of her own, but there were many that she loved and looked out for. Teresa is survived by that loving and giving family who volunteered their kidneys to her four different times: Sister Marjorie (Terrell) Carter their five children and five grandchildren, Sister Lorraine (Gean) Bigler their seven children and 16 grandchildren and two great grandchildren; Sister Kristine (Dave) Hansen their four children and nine grandchildren; Brother David (RoAnne) Rodeback their three children and eight grandchildren; Brother Ryan Rodeback his four children and four grandchildren. Teresa was preceded in death by her Mother and Father.
Teresa was a fighter and spent the majority of her life “Stayin’ Alive”. There were many trials and many miracle moments, she always said PRAYER is how she lived. She has returned back to her creator in the humble fashion she lived her life.
