Teresa Blankenship Obituary

Teresa was born on March 23rd 1971 in San Diego, California to Ruth Olson and Richard Clinkinbeard, the eldest of their two children. She married the love of her life, Tim Blankenship, on September 11th 2003.

Teresa spent the majority of her life in Colorado and worked as an Account Manager for many companies throughout her time, most notably her job at Belt Power. Her love of family inspired a love of acceptance that rippled throughout her life and washed over every person she interacted with. Throughout her time in motherhood, she took in children that weren’t her own. She helped raise and love them like family and then took on the role of Grandma for their children, all of whom she loved and adored. It is because of this that she earned the beloved names Mama T and Grandma T. Anyone who heard those names knew exactly who they were talking about.

Teresa loved adventure, whether is be a hike, visiting the Mother Cabrini Shrine or going out with her children and grandchildren. If she wasn’t out with family, she was in her office crafting something new for someone she loved. She loved to make shirts with funny stuff printed on them, little knickknacks of things people loved and she did it with all the love in her heart.

Every home she inhabited came with an open door policy. She was always open and welcoming, having helped many of the children that walked through her door. She was well known for having some of the best food on the block and her dedication to detail was unmatched. Teresa was more than just a mother to her own children, she was the neighborhood mother who took pride in her role, always one of the first people there and one of the last to leave.

Teresa is survived by her husband, Tim, and her children Suzann (Marcos), Scott (Brittany) and Samantha; along with her grandson Niklaus. She is preceded in death by her father and stepfather; her grandparents, her cousin Brian and sister-in-law Jana.
