Teresa Ann Altman, age 61, died at her home on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 after long, hard fought battle with lung cancer.

Teresa was born on May 13, 1952, Cottage Grove, Oregon to Ralph Petit and Jean Ruby. She graduated from Winter High School in 1970. She attained her associate degree in Business at WITC in Rice Lake, WI in 1990.

Teresa lived in Montana and Alaska before returning to Winter in 1968. In 1992 she met and married the love of her life, Gerald "Sonny" Altman.

The place Teresa was most happy was the home she and her husband Sonny created. She was always outdoors working on another project to enhance her little slice of heaven or playing with her horses. Teresa loved all animals, especially her horse Destiny. Teresa was a true cowgirl. She loved having her grandchildren visit and enjoyed teaching them of her love for horses and animals, except chipmunks.

Teresa is survived by her husband, Sonny; her son Jason Ehn; daughter Lacey and husband Jeremy Stensberg; her father, Ralph Petit; brother, Hank Petit; sister Dawn Thornberry; step brother Shane and wife Krista Petit; grandchildren, Madison and Rhiley Ehn, Rocki Rowan and Colt Stensberg. She was preceded in death by her mother, Jean Ruby.

A Mass of Christian will be held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, April 29 at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Winter, WI. There will be a time of visitation one hour prior to the service at the church.
