Best Friend, Loving Wife, Mother of two, Business Partner
Teresa Walker was born in Tulsa Oklahoma; she grew up on the east and west coasts of the United States.
Teresa met her husband Kurt at the age of 13, when he was 15. They had been inseparable ever since. They married shortly after Teresa’s 18th birthday and celebrated 40 years of marriage earlier this year on July 29th. Teresa was always a hard worker and graduated Marina High School in Huntington Beach, CA at the age of 15, she then earned her degree from Cal State Fullerton by the age of 19. Teresa followed Kurt into the printing industry running a sought-out company in Southern California for a number of years until the summer of 1992 when they packed up the family and moved to rural Lane County Oregon. Moving to Oregon afforded them more time to spend with their two sons and as well as one another. Teresa also enjoyed being able to raise all kinds of farm animals as well as garden. After taking a break from printing, Teresa got back into industry when she purchased The Best Little Printhouse in Town in 2002 as well as acquiring a few more print shops along the way. Teresa passed peacefully with her husband by her side.
Teresa is survived by her husband Kurt, and her sons JT, an executive chef in southern California and Shawn an Artist living in Portland. She will be missed by her family, friends, and the lives she helped with her philanthropic activities. Arrangements in the care of Smith-Lund-Mills Funeral Chapel.
