Teresa Marie Beckner

Teresa M. Beckner, 64, of Owensboro passed away Thursday, September 1, 2022, under the care of Hospice of W. Kentucky. The Grand Rapids, Michigan native was born April 22, 1958, to the late Bernard Julius Courtade and Carolyn Marie Latin Courtade. Teresa was employed as a registered nurse for 32 years at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. She worked in several departments, but her favorite was the mother/baby unit. Teresa enjoyed spending time with her family, traveling, aroma therapy, and karaoke.  

 

Today we say goodbye to an empty vessel that once held the soul of someone we loved. God provided this vessel as an earthly expression of the beauty that it held, nothing more. A vessel that we could physically touch to provide comfort to ourselves, and the soul contained within. Now when we want to see your smile we will only need to look to the heavens and behold the stars. When we wish to feel your love, the warmth of the sun is God’s expression of love to us all. We will feel sadness for the loss of your laughter but will hear it always in the serenade of the morning birds as they awaken the day. God has called you home to brighten his days as you have brightened ours. May this vessel lay undisturbed until the end of time for you have no further need of it. So, until we meet again, God’s speed my beloved. You will never feel pain again.

 

In addition to her parents, Teresa also was preceded in death by her husband of 42 years, James Samuel Beckner in 2019.

 

Those who remain to cherish her memory include her special friend, Jimmy Russelberg; son, James M. Beckner; two grandchildren, Peyton Webb and Deseree Moranz-Price; six great grandchildren, Chanell, Coleson, Macey Sophia, Aubriella Jo, Lacey, Andrew “AJ” James; sister, Carol Grubb (John); brother, James Courtade; faithful friend and sister by love, Alicia Daugherty and Aletheia Kluesner, God daughter. The family would like to express thanks to Elaine Berry, Karen Wetzel, Janet Quintana, and Rosemary Craig for their help and loving care of Teresa.
