Teresa “Terrie” Ann Kratzer, 63, of Terre Haute, passed away in her residence with her loving family by her side, early in the morning, on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013. She was born on Jan. 22, 1950, in Terre Haute, to Millard Webster and Winnie (Ferree) Neilan.

She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially during the holidays. She had many Christmas traditions, such as baking cookies with her grandchildren. Terrie enjoyed traveling as well. She would plan family trips, and leave her family guessing on where their destination was until their arrival. Terrie and her husband Dan enjoyed many wonderful visits to the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, where they stayed in cabins and together enjoyed majestic views of the mountains, the sunrise, and sunsets. Her strong work ethic was demonstrated for many years as an accountant for General Housewares and Princeton Mining. Terrie will be remembered as being a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was beloved by many as well.

Terrie was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband of 30 years, Daniel Kratzer; children, Stephanie Longyear, her husband Scot, Jonathan Williams, his wife Roberta, Paul Williams, his wife Heather, Danelle Giannini, her husband G.C., LiAnne Morales, her husband Raul, Derek Kratzer, and his partner Dawn Gehring; grandchildren, Mariah Longyear, Madison Longyear, Brittany James, Nathaniel Williams, Gabriella Williams, Eryan Majors, Carina Giannini, Gabe Giannini, Liliana Morales, Sophia Morales, Zane Kratzer, and Jacob Kratzer; sister, Sue Lundy, her husband Robert; and brother, James Webster, and his wife Diana.
