Theresa Maria Kauffman Lynn
Luminary-Frostbite Volunteer Fire Department‚ Inc. – Tennessee
Rank: Assistant Captain
Date of Death: December 21‚ 2007
We remember Theresa as a loving and caring person. She was a volunteer firefighter on the Luminary-Frostbite Volunteer Fire Department. She died in a motor vehicle accident while responding to an emergency call on December 21‚ 2007‚ her parents’ wedding anniversary.
She had a smile for everyone‚ and everyone liked her. She loved her horse and went riding with friends. She had a dog named Snowball that she loved very much. In her notes before she moved back home‚ she said at times Snowball was the only friend that she had.
Theresa attended Webb Chapel Church of God and helped with the children’s church. She also drove the church Sunday school van. In the two years that she lived in the area‚ she only missed church a few times.
Theresa worked at K&C Autos as a salesperson. Then she worked at a restaurant as a cook. Everyone said she was a good cook. After the restaurant closed down‚ Theresa put all her time into her service with the Luminary-Frostbite Volunteer Fire Department. In the month of December we didn’t see much of Theresa‚ because she was so busy at the fire department.
Theresa is survived by her parents‚ Chester and Effie Kauffman‚ and by her two sons‚ Ronald and Joshua Kauffman. We love and miss her every day!
