August 23, 1953 ~ January 22, 2020 (age 66)


Teresa Westrick, 66, of Defiance, passed away on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, at the U of M Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI.

She was born on August 23, 1953 to Richard and Jane (Christy) Struble, in Napoleon, Ohio.  

Teri, who was a Mom to all whom entered her home, has left us to find out who really shot JFK.  She is survived by the most dedicated and loving husband, Dennie Westrick.  She is also survived by her children-two daughters, Beth Westrick, St. Paul, Minnesota, Tina Westrick, Kalamazoo, Michigan and son Brian (Rebekah) Westrick, Defiance, Ohio.  Her grandchildren that were showered with love are Hana Westrick, Kalamazoo, MI, Dylan, Chloe, and Zelda Westrick all of Defiance.  Brothers and sisters, Mike (Amy) Struble, Cindy (Steve) Neal, and Steve Struble.  Also survived by Teri are her, "daughters from another Mother," Adrianne Rickenberg, Monica and Sarah Salaz, and the list goes on...

She loved her family and all of her grandchildren.  She loved Christmas, receiving Christmas Cards and watching classic Christmas movies.  All who know her know the joy of her contagious laugh, her love of the Beatles, movie trivia and time spent with lifelong friends.  We will miss her tremendously.

Teri was preceded in death by her parents.
