Read more about the life story of Teresa and share your memory.
Teresa was born to Federico and Simona Fevinger in Lindsay, CA. She peacefully went to be with the Lord on July 6, 2023 at the age of 93. She grew up in Lindsay with her siblings, Celestinto, Zeke, Annie, Mary, Josie and Margie. She graduated from Lindsay High Class of 1949
On December 30, 1951, she married Arturo Serna. Together they raised their two children, Art and Alicia. Those who knew Teresa, knew that her family was her pride and joy. She devoted countless hours of love and attention to her grandchildren, Joseph and David Ross, Carolina, Raquel and Artesia Serna and great grandchildren Sarah and Arthur Borbon. Teresa’s family felt her love deeply, which will be passed on to future generations to honor her life.
Teresa worked as a Nursing Assistant/ OB Tech at Lindsay Hospital for 36 years. She cared for many mothers and babies which gave her joy throughout the years. It was a frequent occurrence for mothers to share with her that her care and kindness made their hospital stay a positive and warm experience. In 2000 she retired. After her retirement, she volunteered at the Lindsay Strathmore Coordinating Council until its closure in 2017. She also devoted her time to leading a weekly Women’s Bible Study until 2018. These experiences gave her the opportunity to serve her community and share her lifelong faith. Her commitment and service to her community were acknowledged when she was named the 2000 OBF Honored Person of the Year. In 2018, she was honored by the Lindsay Chamber of Commerce with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Teresa is preceded in death by her husband, Arturo, her son, David and her son in-laws, Dan Ross, and Mike Davis. She is survived by her children Art and wife Leonor, Alicia Davis, her five grandchildren, two great grandchildren, her two sisters, Josie Gonzales, Margie Marin; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
