Teresa was born on Oct. 11, 1926, in Creston, the daughter of Harry O. and Teresa (Bradley) Harvey. Teresa attended St. Malachy through the eighth grade and graduated from Creston High School in 1944. She married Robert Dale Johannes on June 19, 1948, who preceded her in death in 2008 after 60 years of marriage. They raised four children, Richard, Terri, Angie and Denise.

Teresa took pleasure in her family, her church and music. She loved to play games with friends, and especially enjoyed card games with her grandchildren. Music surrounded her life as she sang in the Creston Chorus and in the church choirs in Creston and Hastings.

Dale and Teresa were both natives of Creston, where their children were born. In 1974, Dale was transferred to Hastings, Nebraska, working for Montgomery Wards. In Hastings, they found a new home and quickly made many new friends and enjoyed life in Nebraska. They both became avid Husker fans and rooted with vigor through every game.

Teresa was preceded in death by her parents; husband Robert Dale Johannes; daughter Angie Johannes and sisters, Patty Schlapia and Joanie Eckerman.

Teresa is survived by her children and their spouses, Richard and Jan Johannes of Overland Park, Kansas, Terri and Tom Glenn II of Chandler, Arizona, and Denise and Robert Nelson of Purcellville, Virginia; grandchildren, Jason and Katie Johannes, Tom III, Emily, Kayla and Daniel Glenn, and Andrew, Evan and Eric Nelson; great-granddaughters, Evie and Frankie Johannes; brother Vince Harvey of West Des Moines and sister Dorothy Callan of Livonia, Michigan.
