Teresa Henry Gothard of Whitwell passed away peacefully holding the hand of her husband of 46 years on Tuesday, November 15th at age of 70. Teresa was a proud and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. Teresa’s greatest love in the world was her husband and family. During her battle, she remained strong, determined, and positive. Through her example, she truly showed us what resilience and perseverance look like. Just because she is no longer here with us physically, her spirit and memory will live on. While Teresa’s family grieves her loss, they are choosing to remember Teresa in a way that honors her powerful spirit.
