Teresa Genevieve Halvorson


Teresa Genevieve Halvorson October 28, 1930 - April 15, 2012 Teresa passed away at Estevan, Sask. on Sunday April 15, 2012 at the age of 81 years. Teresa was born and grew up on the family farm southwest of Estevan. She began her school years at Berdahl where her love of the classroom began. Teresa became a teacher and taught in the Estevan School Unit for 35 years - 34 of those in Torquay. In 1952 she married David Halvorson and their life together began with the farm becoming a big part of her life. After Teresa retired from teaching, David and she travelled the world and she took up the hobbies she didn't have time to do while she was teaching. Teresa often said that October 13, 2004 was a bad day and a good day for her. She was told by her doctor that she had MS and later that day she received a phone call informing her that her second great-grandson, Magnus had safely arrived. Over the next seven years, the MS affected her mobility and after David passed away in 2011 she moved into Hill View Manor where she participated in all of the activities that she could. Survived by her daughter, Narrie (Trevor) Lowe, Torquay; sisters, Mary Mack, Estevan; Grace Carlson, Estevan; brother, Gerald (Agnes) Seipp, Estevan; sisters-in-law, Louise Seipp, Estevan; Grace Unger, Whiterock, B.C.; Lilly Coward, Turner Valley, Alta. and Irene Halvorson, Estevan; three grandchildren, Kaley Lowe, Saskatoon; Janel (Brett) Pearson, Flin Flon, Man. and Stacey Lowe, Torquay; great grandchildren, Bon Lowe, Magnus, Nole and Ellis Pearson. Predeceased by her husband, David; her parents, Anton and Mary Ann Seipp; brothers, Francis (Mary) Seipp, James (Marg) Seipp, infant brother, Richard Seipp and Leo Seipp; sisters, Isabel (Ed) Gough, Eileen (Keith) Coller; in-laws, Jacob Mack, Milo Carlson, Leonard Halvorson, Mabel (Earl) Sovdi, Anne (Godfrey) Strem, Hazel (Ron) Ellway, John Unger and Cecil Coward.
