Teresa "Terry" Lamm, 86 passed away on January 21, 2022. Terry was born on October 3, 1935 to Manuel and Guadalupe (Gomez) Escobedo of Cheyenne, Wyoming,
A native of Cheyenne, Terry met Lawrence W. Lamm of Queens, New York and they married on October 30, 1954. Together, they created a family of eight children who include David Lamm, Michelle (Steve) Beahm, Georjean Lamm (Rob Tenorio), Cindy (Jerry) Rivera, Sharon (Woody) Lamm Acord and Gregory Lamm, all of Cheyenne, Liz (Richard) Lamm-Pollock of Bremerton, WA, and Lynn (Brad) Mosier of Colorado Springs, CO. She also leaves behind 14 grandchildren, Heather (Brian) Richardson, Krystal Lamm (Jason Bobbs), Lyndsey Bobo, Marina Lamm, Jeshua Lamm, Marisa Beahm (Richard Walsh), Jenna Beahm, Justin Turano, Mason (Mona) Rivera, Analiese (Bartosz) Rivera, Kelsi (Madison) Rivera, Brycen (Criselda) Sullivan, Lunden Mosier and Delaney (Paul) Mosier. Her great-grandchildren include Brody, Olivia, Kenzie, Lyndon, Ayda, Ethan, Keara, Steven, Israel and Bianca.
Terry received her certificate as a licensed practical nurse from LCCC and worked as an LPN in the emergency room of DePaul Hospital. She furthered her education to become a registered nurse. She continued working in the emergency room, and then eventually worked on the Transitional Care Unit of the DePaul Building for about 30 years until her retirement in 2004.
She was a voracious reader and imparted this love on her children. She was a jack-of-all-trades involving herself as a Girl Scout leader, room mother, sewing Christmas and Easter outfits for her six daughters, and being a surrogate mom for anyone who needed a safe space to fall. She loved to travel and take road trips to experience as many new places as she could. She always said “I never get lost, it is just a new adventure”.
Terry divorced in the early 80’s and in 1982 met the love of her life, Dave Angel. Terry would find any excuse to bring her family together and she and Dave hosted many family gatherings throughout the years. She was most happy when her family was around and became very sad when everyone left. She was our matriarch and will be greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by her siblings, Eduarda Weidenbaker, Joe O’Day, Frank Escobedo, Pete Escobedo, Beatrice Velazquez, Manuel Escobedo, Josie Escobedo and Benjamin Escobedo (in infancy). Terry is survived by siblings, Connie McAllister, Luce Anspauch and Paula Shepherd.
