Obituary

Teri Lynn Johnson, 57, of O’Fallon, IL, born April 17, 1961 in Carthage, IL, passed away on December 16, 2018 at Memorial Hospital in Belleville, IL.

Teri was raised in Roodhouse, IL and had a heartfelt connection with the community throughout her life. She helped run her mother’s company, Professional Marketing Systems Incorporated, in Macomb and Springfield where she put a personal touch to the seniors she served. Her desire to bring joy to others spread to her professional work, often talking with clients when they were lonely and needed a caring ear. After her mother passed, she continued her career working with the elderly in the Medicare field. She participated in senior seminars, fairs, and Alzheimer’s walks. Her extensive knowledge in the insurance and Medicare field helped many seniors in difficult situations. She received many tear-filled thankful hugs and letters of praise and appreciation.

Teri’s greatest pride was her son Josh, his wife Beth, and granddaughter Reese. Her light-hearted spirit rejoiced in the opportunity to make people happy, especially her granddaughter whom she adored. Teri’s eyes sparkled when she spoke of them and photographs were always on hand to show. Teri will forever watch over her beloved Reese.

Providing love and support to others gave Teri joy. She enjoyed shopping and searching for the perfect bargain that she could give to someone to brighten a dark day. Teri’s hobby was working in nature, but her greatest hobby was to make Reese happy with the various activities they would do together like make fairy gardens in the yard. P.T. Barnum once said, “The noblest art is that of making others happy.” Teri Lynn Johnson was an artist.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Alice, nee Gordon, Deffenbaugh; stepfather, Robert W. Deffenbaugh.

She is survived by her father, Ray Fowler of Abilene, TX; son, Joshua (Beth) DeSha of O’Fallon, IL; granddaughter, Reese DeSha of O’Fallon, IL; brother, Mike Fowler of Abilene, TX; sisters, Jackie Myers of Garland, TX and Toni (Matt) Leahy of Auburn, IL; nephews Vincent Leahy, Brenden Leahy and niece Micheala Leahy.

I am saddened to learn of Teri's passing. I worked with her in the Springfield Market for several years. She had a special place in her heart for Seniors and did so much to help them. She was so kind and generous! My thoughts and prayers are with you.
