She also leaves behind her dog, Tripper. She is preceded in death by her Paternal grandparents, Dean Giles and Ellen Schmidt; Maternal grandparents, Emory Orville Anderson and Ann Callahan; Mother, Kathryn (Katie) Armstrong.

Teresa was born on January 9, 1959 in Spokane, WA to Homer Dean Giles and the late Kathryn Eileen Giles Armstrong (née Anderson). She graduated from Minico HS in Rupert, ID in 1977, and later in life, Wenatchee Valley College in 2000 with a degree in Computer Applications. She married Alex Gonzales, the love of her life, in 1976. Over 2 and a half years, the couple welcomed 2 children into their family, Shannon and Damon. Her children remember her as a kind, gentle, patient, loving, driven and devoted mother who encouraged them to work hard and pursue their goals.

A celebration of life service will be scheduled at a future date to be held in Idaho. In lieu of flowers, please donate to someone you may know who is facing cancer, or to a cancer related charity.

My deep sympathies to the Gonzales family. I worked with Teresa many years ago and her beautiful spirit made such an impression on me. Her family was her world.

There is so much sorrow in the world. But the death of our loved ones brings the deepest sorrow of all. May God’s promise to help you through this difficult time bring you peace, (Isaiah 41:10) and his promise for the future (John 5:28, 29) give you a wonderful hope.

My condolences to the Gonzales families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Teresa. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
