Teresa was born November 1, 1960 in San Pierre, Indiana. She is survived by her husband, John Robert Tilton, Phoenix, Arizona, her parents, Stephen and Sally Dolezal, Cape Coral, Florida, sister Leslie Carter (William Dow), Libertyville, Illinois, and aunts, uncles, cousins and nephews. Teresa grew up in North Judson, Indiana where she graduated high school. She attended and graduated from Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana and Rush St. Luke's Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois, with a degree in Allied Health and Medical Technology. Teresa moved to Phoenix, Arizona several years ago because she loved the mountains and the desert. It is hard to describe Teresa as anything other than a free spirit. She was beautiful, full of energy, enterprising, resourceful, imaginative and creative! A whirlwind of a personality who lived her life the way she wanted. May you rest in Peace.
