Teresa Ann Hobart, age 57, of Streamwood, passed away at home on September 7, 2020. She was born April 19, 1963 in Forest Park, to her loving parents, James Randall Hobart and Scherrie Marie Hobart (Aceto).
As a child, Teresa was a big help to her mother in caring for her younger brother, cuddling and reading books to him. During high school, she was an avid swimmer, and won many awards while on the swim team. She also excelled in her studies, getting straight A’s.
After graduating from Downers Grove High School, Class of 1981, she worked various jobs, until later working as a secretary at The Odium.
Loved ones will remember Teresa as kind-hearted, giving, and someone who thought of others. She was also a big animal lover who had a special fondness for cats.
She gave humorous advice to her niece, saying milk is bad for your teeth and flossing will make you live longer.
In her spare time, Teresa enjoyed swimming, watching Animal Planet, cooking, shopping for clothes, and experimenting with makeup. No matter what she was doing, though, she always made time for animals.
Teresa was preceded in death by her father, James Randall Hobart.
Teresa is survived by her mother, Scherrie Hobart (Aceto); brother, James Hobart; niece, Sabrina Hobart; aunt, Amy Hitchinson (Aceto); cousins, Nadine, Sandy, Joseph, Ivy, Brett, John, Caren, Michael, Steven, David, Douglas, Cary, Wayne, and Cody; and several second cousins who adored Terri Ann.
