|Let the memory of Theresa be with us forever|
Theresa Elizabeth Westerman was born September 25, 1932 in West Point to Anton and Mary (Vandenberg) Westerman. She grew up in West Point and was a 1951 graduate of Guardian Angels High School. Theresa was blessed with the gift of a 'green thumb' and was in tune with nature as she worked the farm, greatly enjoying her cats and her flower gardens. On December 26, 1959, Theresa married John Uhing at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
The couple farmed southwest of Snyder, and following her husband’s death in 1977, Theresa moved to West Point in the Fall of 1978. She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and Guild, and she loved Knights of Columbus Fish Frys. Among Theresa’s favorite pastimes were reading, puzzles, Scrabble with her sister Rosie, and she especially enjoyed spending time with her immediate and extended family.
Survivors include her daughter Berny (Lonnie) Leitow of Bancroft; son Tony (Mary) O’Quinn of Salina, KS; sister Rosemary Lang of West Point; grandchildren Sarah (Vincent) Gerken, April (Brandon) Schneider, Dr. Amber (Ryan) Horn, Kristin (Kyle) Nadrchal, and Chelsee Leitow; and great-grandchildren Briana, Alyssa, and Jocelyn Gerken, Lily and Caleb Schneider, and Alexa, Kaiya, and Ezra Horn. Theresa was preceded in death by her parents; husband John on October 8, 1977; sisters Ella Hoesche and Sister Rose Anthony Westerman; and brothers John, Joe, Freddie, Paul, Hank, Ben, and Francis Westerman.
"Tony and Berny and families -- Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time."
