Teresa loved spending time outside gardening and tending to her flowers. Working with soil helped relax her and brought her so much joy. When she wasn’t out gardening, you could find her inside making sure her home was clean and ready for her many family members to stop by. She loved cooking and all her family enjoyed the meals she would prepare. The most important thing in Teresita’s life was family, she loved being surrounded by loved ones chatting and enjoying each other’s company.
Teresa is survived by her son, Robert Gene Sanchez of Manitou Springs, Colorado. Her sister Carmen (John) Chavez of La Jara, Colorado. Her brother, John (Georgeanna) Marquez of Pueblo, Colorado. As well as numerous other extended family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; Juan and Eulalia Marquez. Her loving husband, Lee G. Sanchez Sr. Her sons, Lee G. Sanchez Jr., and Joe G. Sanchez. And her daughter, Maria Christella Spurr.
Cremation has been chosen and entrusted to Rogers Family Mortuary of Alamosa. Private family services will be held at a later date.
