Theresa loved to crochet and passed that love down to her daughter and granddaughter. Her "scrubbies" were well-known and highly sought-after, as were all of her crafts. Her grandkids always looked forward to "Christmas at Grandma's" and "Grandma's Special Jerky." Theresa loved her family and cherished the time spent with them.

Theresa is survived by her children: Ray (Marcia) Metzmaker of Lansing; Tina (Norm Shaw) Ward of St. Johns; and Brian (Jen) Metzmaker of St. Johns; 9 grandchildren; and 1 great-grandson with one more on the way. She is also survived by her sisters: Elaine Wells and Ellie (Stu) Hebner, and several nieces and nephews.  Theresa was preceded in death by her parents, husband Jerry, sister Donna Morrison, 2 brothers: Roy DuMond and Lee "Butch" DuMond, niece Darcy Cypher and nephew Frank "Buzzy" Wells.
