She was born April 3, 1957 in Kalamazoo, the daughter of Eddie and Nancy (Hale) Otto. Teresa loved the outdoors.

She loved making music and wrote many original songs.

One of Teresa’s proudest moments was winning Best in Show multiple times at the Allegan County Fair parade for the floats she helped design and decorate with her church. Teresa devoted her life to spreading joy to not only her family and friends but to everyone she met.

Surviving are her sister, Lisa (Chris) Sweet-Lukins of Texas; brother, Gerry (Cheryl) Otto of Allegan; nephews, Jaired, Gerard and Dylan; niece, Melissa and a special great-nephew, Devalyn.

Lord knows I don’t deal well with loss. Unfortunately I had no idea of her health. We would send Christmas cards to each other. Last I spoke with Theresa, she had not mentioned

The circumstances that she was enduring .. I have known her since high school, I am in disbelief. My heart goes out to you family, chosen family and friends ….. Theresa Will be greatly missed. Such a kind and loving soul, not to mention her creativity and the beautiful music she could make with her extremely talented self … ❤️

Oh, Teresa, rest in peace. I remeber you and Martha singing at our commit ceremony a long time ago. I loved and laughed at your puppet shows. You were so creative in so many ways. I enjoyed just hanging out. You are missed!

I’ll so much miss Teresa’s unending enthusiasm, optimism and kindness. She always tried to teach and share whatever inspired her. Music, kayaking, giant puppets, her family, her friends, her church and community; whatever Teresa cared about, she actively supported. Her memory will always be a blessing.

I am so sorry for this loss for friends and family. I saw T infrequently since I live in Hawaii but she always talked about wanting to visit. She was a big presence and will be greatly missed. I cherish memories of long talks, music, and laughter.

I can say that Teresa made me feel like I was a part of a family. She always made me feel like I was important. Like I was accepted. The only one to love me. She said I was as much a sister as any. We just lost one of the most talented, loving and caring people that the world would ever know. I will always think of you and LOVE you.
