Teresa Ann Blondo

She graduated from Aberdeen Central High School and Northern State University, both in Aberdeen. Teresa moved to the Springfield, Missouri area in 1995, following her parents and brother who had moved here two years earlier. For the next 23 years Teresa worked in health information management, retail sales, office administration, and as a freelance writer. After being saved by Jesus as an adult, Teresa wrote and published a full-length book, "Anchored: Pressing On by Pressing Into the Savior." Teresa served faithfully in both the hospitality and KidLife ministries at LifePoint Church in Ozark, Missouri, teaching four year old children for many years. Teresa was preceded in death by her grandparents, Carl and Avis (Mielke) Sandquist and Thomas and Ruth (Bradley) Blondo.

"When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home... First line of "The Outsiders, S.E. Hinton The first line from a novel Teresa loved and discussed often with others in fellowship of the written word. Teresa has now stepped out of the darkness of pain and into the bright sunlight getting her ride home to see her Lord and Anchor Jesus Christ. Teresa will be missed but her words and impact will live on. Stacy Swanson Morman and With Condolences The Aberdeen Central Class of 1986.

I met Teresa at Aberdeen Central High School. She was always so kind hearted and I will always remember her beautiful smile. I have followed her journey on social media and have prayed for her and her family. I'm so glad she is now reunited with her true Father and is pain free! I'll miss you Teresa!

Heartfelt sympathy to you all. Teresa had a heart of gold and was always wanting to have fun...even as a kiddo. I fondly remember our re-enactments of Charlie's Angels and Wonder Woman. Little did she know how strong she would be as a grown-up woman...a real life super hero.

Teresa always had such a wonderful smile, and a warming personality. Blessed to have known such a wonderful person. Prayers and condolences to her family.
