Teri Ann Smith began her journey on October 16, 1967, in Erie, Pennsylvania. The one and only child of Esker L. Smith and Johnnie Ruth Cotton Smith. The Lord saw fit to call Teri Ann home on May 21, 2021.
Teri Ann and her mom moved to South Bend when she was four years old, where she attended Benjamin Harrison School. She went on to graduate from Washington High School in 1986. For one year she attended Ball State College and also went to Ross Medical Center.
Teri Ann worked at Indiana Bell-Ameritech for many years where she met many lifetime friends. Teri Ann was blessed to have many aunts, uncles, and cousins that were like brothers and sisters to her. There was much love passed around. She was blessed to have two dads: her stepdad, Oran Johnson (OJ) loved her like his own, much love flowed both ways. Thank you for loving her so much.
Teri Ann’s laugh and smile we will treasure always, she was to us such an easy person to love.
There will be lots of family and friends waiting to greet Teri Ann, her grandparents: Henry and Ann Stovall, Willie and Vinnie Smith.
We forgot about Mickey, Teri Ann loved her some Mickey Mouse.
