Becker, Theresa Ann
Age 94 of Burnsville, passed away peacefully on August 29, 2022, surrounded by her family.
Preceded in death by her husband, Clem “Pete”; daughter, Kay Lutz; great-granddaughter, Karlie Becker; siblings, Mary Alice Boelter, Rita Grunwald, Frank Hoffman, Ed Hoffman, and Ruthie Beseke. Survived by her children, Chuck (Diane) Becker, Bonnie West, Peter Becker, Peggy (Rick) Wilhelmi, Mary Jo Anderson, Cathy (Mike) Lallak, and Barb (Dan) Carleen; 19 grandchildren; 28 great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
Theresa was born August 1, 1928, in Henderson, MN to Bill and Evelyn Hoffman. She was united in marriage to Clem Becker on July 21, 1951. They lovingly raised their family in Minneapolis.
Theresa worked tirelessly for her family. She will be remembered for her great cooking, canning, and baking. She was a beautiful seamstress and quilter. In her later years, Theresa loved playing all kinds of card games (for money of course!) and making charitable donations to many casinos.
Theresa was small in stature, but her faith and love and commitment to her family were larger than life.
Her family and friends were blessed by her selflessness, sense of humor and enduring positive and happy nature.
We were blessed to have her for so many years and she will be deeply missed by many.
