You owe it to yourself to be the best you can possibly be.”

— Theresa Sackey

From her birth in Dallas, Nov. 2, 2001, to her death in 2018, she nourished people around her with love, faith and music. Theresa’s laughter and smile brought joy to her friends and family throughout her life. Although she only had 16 years on Earth, she truly lived life to the fullest. As the historian of Student Council, a member of Interact and a part of Debate, she will be remembered as a bright, shining light in the community. She leaves behind her mom, dad and older sister, Cassandra, a Wylie East alumna.

Theresa’s funeral reception is Saturday, Sept. 8, at 11 a.m. at Restland Funeral Home where her family and friends will celebrate the eminence of her life.
