Teresa Ann Hunzeker

Jan 29, 1962 – Jan 23, 2018

Teresa Ann Hunzeker of Elkhorn, NE passed away on January 23, 2018.  Teresa was born on January 29, 1962 to Ron and Darlene March, in Beatrice, NE.  Teresa grew up on her parents’ farm and graduated from Barneston (Nebraska) High School in 1980.  She was always active in many school activities including music, sports and cheerleading. She attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

On September 17, 1988, Teresa was united in marriage to Fred Hunzeker. Teresa and Fred have two children, Riley Ann Hunzeker, and Carson Donald Hunzeker.  Teresa and Fred lived in Dallas, Texas and Houston, Texas during which time Teresa pursued a career in sales and marketing.  In 1991 they moved to Omaha, where Teresa’s career included sales positions with the Omaha World Herald, Johnson & Johnson, and Purdue Frederick. Teresa retired from full-time employment in 1999 to focus on raising her two beautiful children.

Teresa loved to take her children to their school and afterschool activities and was always available to overschedule them.  She also cherished the trips taken by the family or with Fred, which included trips to Africa, numerous locations in Europe, Asia, and many destinations in the U.S. and Canada.  She always had a keen eye for the best shopping spots on these trips.  She also enjoyed annual ski trips with the family beginning when Riley and Carson were very young.  When at home Teresa helped the children care for their menagerie of loving pets.  She was active with numerous charity organizations in the Omaha community and was always ready to lend her time or make a donation.  Teresa was particularly fond of helping organizations focused on children and youth development.

Teresa is survived by husband, Fred; daughter, Riley; son, Carson; brother, Ron March (Angie); sister, Rhonda Heier (Kevin); sisters-in-law: Caroline Hunzeker, Donna Lyons (Steve), and Lynn Orr (Randy); many nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Darlene and Ron March.

    I’ve always loved this quote from a unknown Author.
    Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us everyday,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved,still missed & very dear..
    Hugs to all the family.

    Teresa touched many lives in a very positive way. After caring for the family pets for years, I feel so blessed to have known her.

    I was lucky enough to have met Teresa when I started working at Elkhorn Animal Hospital and have been helping Teresa take care of her pets ever since. Teresa loved her fur babies and took amazing care of them. I enjoyed so much getting to know the amazing woman that she was and I am so saddened by her passing. My thoughts are with her family at this difficult time. All of us at Elkhorn Animal Hospital are sending much love and prayers to her family and fur babies.
