Teresa Darwine passed away at her home on June 6, 2017 surrounded by her family. Teresa was born on April 18, 1939 in Monmouth, IL, the daughter of Ward and Irene (Dudrick) Noonan. She married Bill Darwine on June 18, 1960. He survives, along with their children: Debbie Darwine (Michael Staes) of Oak Park, iL; Terri Vanderjack (Brian) of Downers Grove, IL, and two grandchildren: Matt Vanderjack of Downers Grove, IL and Marc Vanderjack of Taichung, Taiwan. She is also survived by three sisters, Betty Anderson and Regina Noonan of Galesburg and Delores (Nick) Campagna of Monmouth, IL; a sister-in-law, Joan (Ken) Brenner of Lake Barrington, IL; many nieces and nephews; and her little friend, Cooper. She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Dick and Dan Noonan; and two sisters, Patricia Holt and Kathleen Tadie. Teresa spent her early life on a farm west of Monmouth. She moved to Galesburg, met Bill and got married. She worked at Gamble Skogmo, Dohrn Tranfer, and the Galesburg Clinic and was a school bus driver for District 205 for many years so she could have the same schedule as her girls. The last 25 years were spent working alongside her husband as an antique dealer and restorer. Teresa loved nature, flowers, clouds and sunny days, little animals and gardening. She loved to travel and visited Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as most of the U.S. She was a loving mom and wife who put everyone else first. She will be missed forever. Teresa will be cremated and, at her request, there will be no services or visitation. A gathering of family and close friends will be held at a later date. Goodbye, Teresa, My BFF.
