Theresa Linville Brechtel, 49, passed peacefully into the arms of her savior on May 1, 2017 after a massive stroke.
She was born April 16, 1968 in Norfolk, VA to Elizabeth E. Tillett and the late Robert W. Linville.
Theresa graduated from Great Bridge High School and earned her RN degree from Germanna Community College. Most of her nursing years were spent caring for the children in the ER at CHKD.
She was a lover of all animals and found plenty to rescue. Theresa was a true advocate for all those she loved. She was a free spirit, adventurous, and a lover of the beach, sun, and the Islands. Theresa was truly a Gods loving Daddy’s girl.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Jessica & Joseph Bailey, sisters, Selena & Sherica Linville, her granddaughter Raighlynn and many special aunts, uncles, and close friends.
A celebration of life will be held on May 6, 2017 at 11:00am Emmanuel Baptist Church, 1012 N. Battlefield Blvd., Chesapeake, VA. Refreshments following the service.
In lieu of flowers a pet food basket will be donated to the Chesapeake Humane Society in Theresa’s name — Please bring what you can for the basket.
