Teressa Schroeder

January 6, 1966 - January 18, 2023

It is with tremendous sadness and grief that I announce our dear friend and colleague, Teressa Schroeder, passed away at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 18, 2023 at St. Vincent's Hospital in Portland after a courageous and heart-breaking battle with cancer.  She was a bright star, taken away from us way too soon, that we had the singular privilege to work with for many years -- loving, compassionate, generous, and absolutely devoted to her family, friends & students, for whom she always went the extra mile! Teressa was a Portland Community College ESOL instructor and longtime ORTESOL member. We will miss her ebullient and joyful presence in our midst!

A Celebration of Life service will be held at Sunset Church,14984 NW Cornell Rd, Portland, OR 97229, on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome!

A memorial gathering for PCC colleagues will be announced at a later date.
