She worked for the Salvation Army as the feeding program manager, and the Great Plains Food Bank as a warehouse supervisor. Teddy was an excellent basketball player in high school, where she maintained a 100% free-throw average! Family and friends were very important to her, as she was a very caring person. Throughout the years she made many friends back home and in the Fargo-Moorhead area. She cared about people and what was happening in their lives. She often lent advice along with asking how you were doing. She had a smile and warm words to say when you visited. She enjoyed getting together for family BBQ’s, especially the July 4th celebrations. She also enjoyed attending powwows where visits with family and friends were enjoyed. Throughout the years, Teddy had the pleasure of doing some traveling and enjoyed sharing her stories of new things seen and fun times had. She and Duey enjoyed watching football together and had an ongoing rivalry over the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers. She had the opportunity to meet many people in her work at the local Salvation Army. She grew to care about people, the people she served there, and what was going on in their lives. She did everything she could to help them. At the food bank she continued to fill a role helping people in a challenging job where she supervised in a warehouse setting. She was also responsible for interacting with volunteers and using her people skills when delegating duties there.
