A Celebration of Life service for Theresa Sanford, 53, will be held Friday, July 30, 2021 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. at the Pierschbacher Funeral Home in Milo.

Theresa was born on January 12, 1968, in Des Moines, Iowa to Arnold and Julia (Austin) Bergman. She grew up in the Saylor Township, attending Saydel High School.

Theresa was a hard worker. She owned TNT Nails in Milo. She managed the Casey’s store in Milo, as well as being an Associate at Walmart and working some security.

Theresa was blessed with three daughters: Nichol, Tiffany, and Jennifer. She met Tom Sanford 25 years ago and they were married 15 years ago. They had a son, Tommy. Her family meant the world to her.

Everybody who knew Theresa, knew how hilarious she could be with her crazy, wonderful sense of humor. Not only did she love people, she had a love for all animals as well. She was also a very spiritual person.

Theresa enjoyed going to visit her mother in California a great deal. She loved being near the ocean. She enjoyed many hobbies including crafting, thrifting, camping, and gardening. She liked staying busy. A phrase Theresa liked to use to describe things in life was, “It just is what it is.”

Those left to cherish her memories are her mother, Julia Bergman; husband, Tom Sanford; children: Nichol (Dustin) Lester, Tiffany (Zack) Lewis, Jennifer (Nick) Adams, and Tommy (Addyson) Sanford; 3 grandchildren; Hailey, Xander, and Raelin; siblings, Yates and Effie; and uncle, David (Kim).

Theresa was preceded in death by her dad, Arnold Bergman “Boompa.”
