Obituary for Teresa M. Shanks

Teresa M. Shanks, age 47, of Shakopee, Minnesota, passed away on Friday, February 16, 2018, at her home surrounded by her family. Teresa left this world fighting for more time after a too brief battle with multiple myeloma.

Teresa was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on June 27, 1970, the daughter of Jerry and Beverly (Oxley) White. She was brought home in the arms of her loving parents on July 27, 1970. She married Stephen Shanks on April 18, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Brief words can’t express the essence of our beautiful redhead, Teresa: her passion for her family, friends, sweet chocolatey brown dog and big head Jed—cheering just as loudly for the boys at baseball games as the MN Vikings—enjoying reality shows one day; political satire the next—and did you hear her fabulous laugh? She liked to travel--but don’t call her outdoorsy. Always putting others before herself, Teresa’s honesty and commitment to knowing the right thing will forever bring smiles to our faces as we think WWTD (What Would Teresa Do)?

She was grateful to her family, friends and co-workers at Cushman-Wakefield for their support.

Teresa will be remembered always by her husband, Stephen; stepsons, Benjamin and Tristan; parents, Jerry and Beverly White; brother, Todd (Sheila) White; sister-in-law, Christy (David) McCutcheon; brother-in-law, Mark (Kara) Shanks; nieces and nephew, Olivia and Marleigh White, Katie and Maya McCutcheon, and Kacey Shanks; and the family dogs, Ripple and Jed.
