    So sorry to hear of Teresa’s death. I bought Avon from her for several years. Always enjoyed my visits with her, especially after she found out I had graduated with Sterling’s brother Reed.

    I remember Teresa when she and family was living in Laurel, She sold Avon to my mother (Marilyn)
    I think her family lived across the street from us. My dad was Leo Dietrich
