God delivered one of his angels to our family on April 4, 1949 in the name of Teresa Louise Ihde. Known to our family as Georgie. She believed a life not lived for others is not a life. "Do small things with great love" is how she lived everyday on this earth. She devoted her life to her family, and chronicled every detail with countless photographs, time-lines, and hand written words of love. Her happiest times were those spent with her family, giving anything and everything to all, helping anyone who crossed her path; without expectations or judgements. She loved the lake, fishing, boating, and water skiing; but nothing more than her family. We will miss her gentle touch, selfless acts of kindness, soft spoken words, and unconditional love.
She was born in Clovis, Ca. She grew up and resided in the Easton area. Her new and peaceful life began on Wednesday March 27. Teresa attended both American Union Elementary. and Washington Union High School. For over 30 years she worked at the IRS as a tax examiner and was involved with the VFW Ladies Auxiliary post #5057. Following retirement she devoted her life to helping with her parents "ranch", volunteering her time at Birney Elementary, and driving "Ms. Daisy."
She is survived by her parents Floyd and Lois Ihde; her brother James and partner Sherry; sisters Linda and husband Scott Dean, Winnie and husband Keith Hughes, and Susan and husband Tim Martin. Also her nieces and nephews (her children); Brett & Stephanie, Jennifer & Sean, Kristi, Stephanie & Rick, Ryan & Wanna, Keri, Brittany & Joe, Brandon; her "babies" Kylan, Logan, Gavin, Tristyn, McKenna, Emery, Nickolas, Ava, and Henry.
A viewing will be held at Stephens and Bean Chapel on Tuesday April 2 from 3 p.m. To 7 p.m. Funeral services are Wednesday, April 3 at 1 p.m. at Stephens and Bean Chapel with burial following at Fresno Memorial Gardens.
We love you 24/7. Love, hugs, and kisses. You're our girl Georgie.
