Teresa Ann Miller was born on October 6, 1956 in Davenport, daughter of Laura (Bishop) and Donald Miller, Jr. She graduated from Davenport West High School in 1975 and later earned an Associate’s Degree. She was united in marriage to Kevin Patrick Marxen on August 14, 1982 at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, Davenport. Teresa stayed home to raise her children before returning to work for 20 years at the West Kimberly HyVee in Davenport. She most enjoyed her time with her beloved grandchildren. Bird photography and being in nature was her passion. She will be remembered as Aunt T and T-Bone to those closest to her. Her bright smile and kind heart will be missed most. She was warrior and a strong woman.
