Teresa K. Eaker

Teresa Kim Eaker (Frushour) passed away suddenly on June 30, 2018. Teresa was born Nov. 11, 1960, in Detroit, Michigan, to Gloria and Rouland Frushour.

Teresa’s love and compassion for life was demonstrated through her family and transferred to all those around her. There were no lengths she would not go to comfort, care, and help those in need, whether they were in her direct orbit or those she never met. She has touched so many throughout her short life as a loving wife, a mother to her wonderful children, a sister, an aunt, and a friend. All those she babysat as well as the friends of her children were treated and cared for as if they were her own; all knowing her love and tenderness, but when needed, a scolding, even into their adult lives. If only there were more like this cherished soul in this world.
