Teresa Joan Mishler

An avid reader, Teresa enjoyed quiet time and a fresh book with a ‘coffee n smoke’.  After retiring as a self titled ‘Data Maven’ at the Milwaukee Municipal Sewage District, she loved being ‘Garden District Goodwill Ambassador’ tidying up the garden and picking up trash in the neighborhood streets and park.

Her funeral will be held at 11am, followed by her burial at Forest Home Cemetery (2405 West Forest Home Ave. Milwaukee, Wi 53215) at 12:30pm.  Memorials may be made in her honor to Hunger Task Force.

    We are so sorry for your loss Paul and Katie! Terry was a beautiful lady. We enjoyed her humor. We hated seeing her through the pains of her cancer. May she rest in peace with her beloved Jim!. Sinceerly, Jim and Patty(Misher)Thompson

    Dear Katie….without you Terry would not have fought as long or as hard as she did. Thank you for the excellent care and unconditional love. You were her rock right to the end. When you feel lonely please know she’ll always be with you. May her humor and zest for life live on through you.

    My condolences to the whole family. Terry was a great friend to me in high school. She called me “Boo” (bat) and I called her “Olga:” (Korbut). We caught up not long ago and she told me about her life in Milwakee and work etc. Her laugh and smile were the same and it was great to talk to her again. She will be missed. Class of 76!

    Katie and Paul,

    We are so sorry for your loss. We will always remember your mother for her warm personality and of course her sense of humor. She was always so quick to make the comment that would make everyone laugh. Many a family gathering where she said something that was so well timed and so funny that we would remember it as a Terry moment. There are a couple expressions I use from time to time and I immediately think of Terry.

    We plan on attending her memorial service and funeral later this month. We look forward sharing some memories with you then

    Love, Mike, Gwynne, and Madelyn Mishler

    Such a beautiful slideshow! I am glad we got to spend time with her in Duluth. She was quite the individual.
