Teresa McElveen Stansberry, a beautiful and loving soul, peacefully gained her wings at the Preston House in Charlotte on December 2, 2023. Born on February 23, 1957, in Huntersville, NC, she lived a life filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories.
She had a passion for gardening and found solace in tending to her flowers and plants. The beauty she created in her garden was a reflection of the beauty she carried within her.
One of Teresa's greatest joys was traveling to the beach. The sound of crashing waves brought her peace and tranquility. Whether strolling along sandy shores or basking in the sun's warm embrace, she found true happiness by the sea.
In her role as a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend, Teresa exemplified unconditional love and devotion. She was the pillar of strength for her family and friends, always offering support and guidance with an open heart.
Teresa is survived by her loving husband David Stansberry, who stood by her side through thick and thin for 46 years. Their bond was unbreakable, a true testament to their commitment to one another. Sandy Stansberry was blessed to call Teresa her mother; their bond will forever be cherished. David Stansberry Jr., together with his wife Brittany Stansberry, were doted upon by Teresa as their children brought immense joy into her life. Linsey Teague, alongside her husband Mike Teague, shared countless precious moments with Teresa that will never be forgotten. Her granddaughters Alexia Stansberry and Harper Stansberry held a special place in Teresa's heart and were the light of her life. She is also survived by her sister Donna McElveen Hyde.
Teresa treasured the time spent with family and extended relatives who held a special place in her heart. Her mother, father, and brother precede her in death, and their memory will forever be honored.
A Celebration of Life service will be held on December 17, 2023, at Raymer - Kepner (Huntersville) located at 16901 Old Statesville Rd, Huntersville, NC, 28078. The service will commence at 1:00 PM and conclude at 2:00 PM. This gathering will be an opportunity for friends and loved ones to come together to honor Teresa's remarkable life.
