Teresa R. Sprouse, 56, went to be with the Lord Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019, while surrounded by family.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Terry Robinson; and father-in-law, Pete Sprouse.

Left to cherish her memory are her loving husband, Cris Sprouse; children, David, Alicia and Jonathan; daughter-in-law-to-be, Amber; beloved grandson, Zion; parents, Trudy and Sam Tant; father, Thomas Robinson; brothers, Tom, Tim and Todd; and mother-in-law, Carolyn Wall Sprouse.

Teresa fiercely loved her family. Just leaving the room would prompt an “I love you” from her. She spent much time in her garden cultivating vegetables, growing beautiful roses and even perfecting the art of bonsai. She served her country in the U.S. Navy and later retired as a school bus driver in Virginia Beach.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 30, at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Drive, Virginia Beach. A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 1, at the funeral home.

The family of Teresa would like to thank her hospice team for their dedication, compassion and friendship. Susan, Mary, Jenny and Shellie, you have touched our hearts and lives.
