Teresa Diane Shore, 49, of Lenoir entered eternity while being surrounded by family Monday, March 18, 2013 at Caldwell Memorial Hospital in Lenoir following a brief illness.
Teresa, a native of Lenoir, and loving daughter to Ernest Messer and Patricia Oliver was an inspiration to all who knew her. She was full of life and never turned anyone with a need away. She loved to spend time with her family and friends and would encourage us to live life to the fullest. She taught us the meaning of the word compassion and was a role model to all of her children and grandchildren. She was an avid gardener and loved to share her cooking creations with all. Teresa has held many professions in her life, but her faithfulness to being a wonderful daughter, wife, sister, mother and grandmother were her passions. She was preceded in death by her infant grandson Anthony.
Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Micheal Wayne Shore of the home; her son, Richard Allen Dula and his wife Suzanne, her son, Michael Lee Dula and fiancé April Key, along with his children Michael Lee II and Shelby, her daughter, Lisa Shore Shoemaker and her husband Tony along with their children Megan and Riley, her daughter, Judy Shore Pope along with her husband Darian and children Ivy and Buddy, her siblings Danny Messer, Ernie Messer and Tammy Falzon as well as many extended family members including Gail and Joe Griffey and Joella Price Shore.
The family will receive friends Thursday, March 21, 2013 at Pendry's Lenoir Funeral Home from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
