Teresa Tyler, 76, of Lady Lake, Fla., passed away peacefully on Sept. 23, 2012.
She was born to the late Enrico and Rosa Ziliani on Feb. 3, 1936, in Piacenza, Italy.
While working as a nurse in England, she met and married Ralph T. Tyler. Teresa and Ralph moved back to the United States, where they lived their lives together until the Lord called her to his eternal home.
Teresa was a devout Catholic all her life and worked as a wonderful seamstress until her retirement.
Teresa is survived by her loving husband and two sons, Rico and Roy, and grandchildren, Joseph, Ryan and Robin. She is also survived by her brother, Nando, and his wife and children, who still live in Italy.
Teresa brightened the lives of all those who knew her. She truly and deeply loved her family. Even after her death, she remains a light to dispel all shadows.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association at ALZ.org.
There will be a requiem Mass held in Franklin later this year. All friends are invited and a notice will be announced in the local papers.
The Mass will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, December 8th at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Franklin. All friends and relatives are welcome. A light meal will be served in the parish hall after the Mass.
