Teresa Sasser Pajares, a fun-loving mother, sister and friend, passed away peacefully spending her final days with her closest family and friends at her favorite place. Teresa lived her life to the fullest and made sure everyone else did too. Teresa's outlook on life was contagious. She taught us life is short and sometimes unfair, and the best way to combat it all is with a good laugh and an ability to appreciate the small moments of joy, despite the circumstances. She loved spending days riding her yellow Harley and never missed a Monday night at Iron Thunder. You could always count on Teresa to be chasing sunsets and adding her touch to everywhere she went.
Her daughter Krystal Totherow and husband Lionel of Conover; a son Chase Connor of Catawba; a sister Tina Swart and husband Brian of Wilmington; a brother Wayne Sasser and wife Ann of Grifton, NC; grandchildren Nora and Bryson Totherow, and Brayden, Patton, and Emma Connor and a number of nieces and nephews survive her.
