Theresa Kay Vann, 65, died peacefully on Saturday afternoon, February 10, 2018, at her home in Oviedo, FL.

Born in Elizabeth City, NC, on January 13th, 1953, to Norman and Margie Krebs who surpassed her in death.

She was married to the love of her life, James Vann on June 29, 1974.  They built a life in Englewood, FL where they grew their family from two to five.

Her husband surpassed her in death in 1991, and she never remarried.

She is survived by her three children; Kelly (Ben) of Oviedo, FL, Jonathan (Danielle) of Raleigh NC, Christopher (Cynthia) of Orlando, FL; and her eight grandchildren; Alexis, Levi, Micah, Cooper, Kai, Lyla, River and Grayson.

Theresa will be remembered for her gracious and giving heart, her beautiful smile, adventurous spirit, amazing cooking, boisterous laugh, her love of coffee and a good book; but most of all, her love for her family and friends. Anyone who was lucky enough to have met her would call her a friend, as she was loved by all! Theresa had never met a stranger, to her they were just friends she had not met yet! She filled our hearts with smiles and love, and our bellies with delicious food! The woman was a culinary genius!

During her last year, she was able to retire and move to be closer to her children. Her days were filled with love and snuggles from her grandchildren. Theresa loved her three children with all her heart and considered them her proudest achievement. But her kids would argue that her grandbabies were the true loves of her life!

A service celebrating the life of Theresa will be held on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at the Swayze Art Studio; located at 2373 Donovan Road, Englewood, FL 34223 at 1:00pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested to keep her memories alive by sharing them with one another and to keep smiling.

Condolences may be directed to Kelly Thorpe (260 Sawyerwood Place, Oviedo, FL 32765), Paul Vann (3239 Sunbright Lane, Raliegh, NC 27610), Christopher (your address)

    We will remember Theresa always as a dear friend a happy go lucky personality. She was a friend everyone wishes they could have. As she looks down upon us, I'm sure she is smiling and hopes all the sadness is erased from us. May God bless her,her children,their families,and all her many friends.Until we meet again may you be held tight in God's arms. Your friend, Loretta Gill

    It is hard to imagine that we were all at Grayson's soccer game earlier in the day! I wish there had been a sign that something was not right and could have intervened. I did not know you for long, but in that time I learned you loved your children and grandchildren immensely! You laughed often and your smile always was reflected in your eyes. It is with great sadness that I realize I will no longer have a sideline partner at the countless shared grandkids sporting and school events. My heart knows you are in a better place but I recognize the unfathomable hole left behind in the lives of those who loved you. May they each find peace and comfort. Till we meet again...
