Theresia (Teri) Doris Wojcik, age 62, passed away Wednesday, November 27, 2019 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Teri was born January 8, 1957 to Fredrick J. and Lori (Sink) Hardiman in Colorado Springs. A true Colorado Springs native is becoming a rare find and Teri has been exactly that. Teri’s family did move around as her dad was in the military, but found their way back to Colorado and has since called Colorado home for many years.
Teri graduated from Widefield High School and brought life to everyone around her. Her energy made all environments warm. Her unique and contagious laugh would fill the air every place she went. Teri loved music about life, love and happiness. Those were the exact principles she lived by. Teri touched the lives of everyone she met. Her beautiful, special soul was encased within a heart of gold. Her infectious smile and caring personality always placed others before herself. She inspired all with her loving, gentle and unselfish ways. Teri helped so many friends and family with baby showers, weddings, company parties and so much more.
She loved helping others and serving a purpose. Teri will be remembered as a firecracker, full of life and energy. She gave the best hugs and always offered a listening ear. She has always been very compassionate about her friends and family. That positive energy and compassion will live on forever. She’ll also be remembered for so many moments with different coworkers throughout the years at Inmos, Honeywell & Atmel. After her retirement, Teri attended Real Estate school and became a very successful local Real Estate Agent for more than 15 years. She was truly limited by nothing.
Teri loved her husband Mike. The two traveled the world together. Mike and Teri shared a beautiful friendship and devotion not often found. Everyone who knew the couple would describe them as being deeply in love. Teri treasured her children and grandchildren. Her life revolved around all of them. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for them and was happiest when she was spending time with them. She told them “I love you to the moon and stars and back” every day and at the end of every phone call. She meant it. Her love for her children had no boundaries. Few people are lucky enough to have a closeness the way she had with her children and grandbabies.
Her husband, children and family will miss her presence and will remember her for the rest of their lives. The whole world will feel her absence and the sun will not shine as bright without her. Her life will never be forgotten. She will forever be in our hearts.
She is preceded by her parents Fred and Lori Hardiman and one sister Heidi Johnston. Teri is survived by her husband Mike, who absolutely loves and adores her; her children Lisa Anthony and her husband Tim, John Smith, Nick Wojcik and his wife Sarai, Eric Wojcik, Beth Wojcik Schulle and her husband Adam; eleven beautiful grandchildren, Logan, Madison, Brooklynne, Kane, Henry, Jeremiah, Caleb, Paizley, Cash, Ryder and Aubrey; one brother Mike; one sister Debbie; many other family members and hundreds of friends.
