Teresa Marie Caverley, age 53, of Goshen, was called to her forever heavenly home on Thursday, August 5, 2021, just before 8am, in her residence. Teresa was born in Warsaw on February 25, 1968, to Dale and Geraldine (Caverley) Hatfield. Teresa lived much of her life in the Warsaw and Goshen area.
Professionally, Teresa most recently worked in upholstery for Lippert Components, at Veada, in New Paris. She was hardworking and a dedicated employee; her colleagues and supervisors attested to this, stating that it would take two or three good workers to replace Teresa. Some may also remember Teresa from the years she supervised in housekeeping, at Comfort Inn/Holiday Inn, in Warsaw.
Teresa was a beautiful woman who believed in others. She embodied a strong resilience which reflects her life greatly. A genuine fan of classic country music, Teresa enjoyed her NASCAR races, as well a good western series. Teresa was a great friend to many and she loved her family dearly.
Those who survive to carry on Teresa’s memory include her son, Michael (Corrie) Islas, Jr. of Nappanee; three daughters: Celia Islas of Goshen, Melina Islas of Ligonier and Diana (Elias) Higareda-Islas of Elkhart; nine grandchildren: Sandra, Daniel, Dallas, Samuel, Aaliah, Santiago, Aquiles, Salmos and Quetzaly; three sisters: Deneen Cavlerley, Brenda Rash and Dorothy (Crescencio) Cleto and two brothers, Harold (Angie) Hatfield and Michael. Sixteen nieces and nephews, a large extended family and many friends also survive. Teresa was preceded in passing by her parents, grandparents, three cousins, and a nephew.
