December 4, 1960 - March 13, 2022
Teresa Rechel Schunter, 61, passed away in her home Sunday, March 13th. 2021. She passed away peacefully in her sleep. Teresa was born in Tillamook, Oregon on December 4th, 1960. She is preceded in death by her son, Johnathon Leach; mother, Della Harris; father, John Schunter; sister, Renée Schunter. She is survived by her brother, Richard Arthur; children, Ricky (Megan) Leach, Lindsey Leach, Andrew Thomas, and Amy Tolbert. She is also survived by nine beloved grandchildren, Emma and Tera Hammond (Lindsey), Brooklyn Kazeck, Colten and Katie Leach (Johnathon), Benjamin Leach (Ricky), Silas, Mya, and Ian Thomas (Andrew). Teresa grew up in Tillamook, Oregon. She loved the beach, the ocean, and the gorgeous greenery. She spent some of her childhood in Louisiana and Nevada. While we don’t know about much of her time in those places, she always said she wanted to go back. She started to grow her family in Ohio and eventually made her way back to Oregon. She spent some time in Arizona as well and enjoyed the desert. While she loved all of those places, her home came to be Ohio. She spent her time playing with her grandchildren and painting. Over the past few years, her paintings became better and better, just like her. While she struggled with mental illness, she overcame it the best she could by painting and letting her creative mind flow onto her canvases. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. Everyone who met her never forgot her or her infectious smile and boisterous laugh. She lived a full and adventurous life. She loved to travel, walk through the woods and find beauty in everything that crossed her path. Her favorite thing to do (besides painting) was watching Bob Ross and cuddling her two cats, Filli and Cow Kitty. Teresa will be remembered for her love of singing, painting, frogs, and twisty sticks. There was never a dull moment with her. She was the crazy glue that kept it all together. She loved her children and her grandchildren more than life. She will truly be missed by everyone that knew her.
