Teresa Lynn Ledford passed to her heavenly home on Tuesday, February 1 at Hancock Regional Hospital in Greenfield. She was born December 26, 1948 to Jesse and Leola Ledford in Connersville, Indiana.

Teresa graduated from Connersville High School, and started working at Fayette Bank &Trust in Connersville, Indiana in 1967 right after high school. She worked her way up through hard work and promotions and attending Loyola College, becoming VP and then President of the bank. She graduated from Mundelein/Univ of St Mary of the Lake and received additional training at Indiana University East.

She was an active member of the Indiana Bankers Assoc., National Association of Bank Women, Altrusa in Connersville, Red Hats, and other organizations.

Teresa enjoyed sewing and created many quilts for family and friends; she donated

much fabric to Unraveled, a sewing ministry at Park Chapel Christian Church as well as other missions. She also enjoyed card-making, reading, and traveling, fulfilling her life-long dream of going to Africa among a variety of other places. Other special times included seeing trick-or-treating children in her neighborhood at Halloween, greeting and treating them from her front porch. She also loved decorating her home at Christmas.

Through the years, Teresa helped her mother and many other relatives in any way she could. She also has left behind many good friends, neighbor Gary Powdrill, and many caregivers, including Susan Robertson and Cindy Woods.
