Terresa May Rippy
Terresa May (Halbert/Shuster) Rippy died unexpectedly on March 14 in Carbondale, Colorado. She was 48.
She was born on Dec. 7, 1962 in Austin, Texas, but spent her life in the Roaring Fork Valley, graduating from GSHS in 1981.
Terresa loved being outside in nature and was both active and athletic throughout her life. However, no matter what she did or where she went, closest to Terresa’s heart were her seven adoring “grandbabies” and her many pets.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Juanita Weaver, Carlos and Rachel Martin; aunt Carrie Hopkins, and uncle Carlos “Buster” Martin.
Terresa is survived by her parents, Bob and Nancy Halbert; brother, Bob Halbert Jr.; son, David Shuster; daughter, Dawn Hernandez; seven grandchildren; partner, Jake Davis; as well as her extended family and friends.
A memorial for Terresa’s life will be held at the 1st Presbyterian Church, 1016 Cooper Ave. Glenwood Springs on Saturday, March 26 at 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to David Shuster (3210 Blake Ct., Glenwood Springs, CO 81601) in her memory to aid with expenditures in her bereavement remembrance.
