Teresa Makenzie Sperry

February 22, 2011 - September 27, 2021

Teresa Makenzie Sperry entered this world on February 22, 2011 and left us on September 27, 2021 at 4:46 p.m. due to complications from Covid-19.  In her brief 10 years on this Earth, Teresa was a ray of light and positivity to many.  She was a friend to all even to those that would bully her.  Teresa had an appreciation for the arts.  She loved drawing, dancing at home, and singing. She was an active Girl Scout with Troop 313 in Suffolk, Va.  She attended her meetings virtually or in person when it was safe to do so.  Teresa was proud to be a Husky at Hillpoint Elementary School where she attended since September 8, 2015 with the Early Start program. After the shutdowns, Teresa started to learn how to sew. She wanted to learn how to make clothing and her family would joke that she would need to be her mother’s personal designer.  She was a daddy’s girl in every step of the way.  Teresa leaves behind her father Jeff, mother Nicole, three protective brothers: Jonathan (16), Sean (14), and Michael (9).  As well as numerous grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and so many friends.  Covid-19 took her away from us as quickly as she started showing symptoms.  And her heart that was large enough to care about everyone she met was not strong enough to stay with us.  

Visitation will be held at Altmeyer Funeral Home – Southside Chapel 5033 Rouse Dr. Virginia Beach on Saturday, October 9, 2021 at 6 p.m..  Funeral services will be conducted at Altmeyer Funeral Home – Southside Chapel on Sunday, October 10, 2021 at 1:30 p.m.  Our Diva, Our Princess will be laid to rest at Holly Lawn Cemetery following the service at approximately 4 p.m..  Following the service, please join her family at Lake Meade Park located next to Holly Lawn Cemetery for a time to come together and celebrate her life.  Her family has the following requests for anyone attending any of the events listed: wear your favorite color, all in attendance must have a mask on, and please bring your own colored pen so that you may share a memory that you treasure of Teresa Sperry in the journal that her family will keep.  

Poem for Teresa

My heart is broken

Like a million pieces of glass.

What once was so full

Is empty so fast.

I miss my princess,

The most loving person I know.

I can’t hear her laugh anymore,

I can’t watch her grow.

She would have been beautiful.

She’s just like her mom.

I see her dance in my heart

But I won’t see her go to prom.

She is so kind to her friends.

Always takes care of those around her.

I won’t see her babies,

She would have been a wonderful mother.

I can’t find the end to this,

I’m hurting too bad.

With this hole in my heart

I’m nothing but sad.

Forever my Princess.

*Jeff Sperry*
