Sophie Marie Teets

Died: Thursday, March 11, 2010
Age: 90
Sophie Marie Teets, 90, formerly of Metamora, passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Punta Gorda, Florida on Thursday March 11, 2010.

Born April 6, 1919 in San Antonio, Texas to Felix and Maria Ortiz, she was the oldest of 6 children. She met Edmund Teets, fell in love and married him on November 11, 1939. They moved to Pontiac in 1948 where their three oldest children graduated from Pontiac Northern. They later moved to Metamora in 1964 where their youngest child graduated from Lapeer High School. Edmund preceded her in death in September of 1973.

Sophie enjoyed working at Industrial Machine products in Oxford, from which she later retired. She moved to Florida 5 years ago with her son to stay warm and keep away of the snow and cold. Some of Sophie’s favorite things to do in Punta Gorda were to feed her cows treats every day, work in her garden, and sit by her pond with her dog Mickey.

She leaves behind 4 children, Jim (Donna) Teets of Imlay City, Marylou (Brad)

Hale of Falmouth MI, Donald (Mary) Teets of Punta Gorda FL, and Della (Rod) Patrick of Waterford; 12 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren. She will be missed forever by her entire loving family and her many friends.

A memorial service was held Tuesday, March 16th in Punta Gorda Florida. There will also be a memorial held later this summer in Sandusky, MI at the annual family reunion.
