Teresa "Terri" Hackl

Died Jan. 25, 2018


Teresa “Terri” Hackl, 65, of Lakeworth, Fla., formerly of Flint, passed away Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018, at home surrounded by her loving husband and family, after a long battle with cancer.

Teresa was born Nov. 26, 1952, to the late William and Shirley McRorie. Teresa retired from South Florida Water Management District as a Geographer III in October 2014 after 38 years of service. Teresa had such an infectious personality, and always had a smile on her face with something funny or positive to say. Her kind, loving heart and love for animals was beyond anything anyone has ever seen.

She is survived by her husband, Paul; stepdaughter, Jessica; and her two dogs, Fred and Gidget. She is also survived by sisters, Linda Chadderdon and Marsha (Craig) Lesley; brother, Scott (Cathy) McRorie; and many loving nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you honor Teresa’s wish with a donation to your local animal shelter.

A family service will be held in Michigan where Teresa wanted to be cremated and have her remains, along with her Boston Terrier “Gizmo,” spread in her beloved Lake Huron offshore from her Michigan retirement home, where her intended retirement was cut so short! A celebration of life get-together is not planned at this time for Florida. The family encourages all the multitude of groups of friends Terri loved so deeply to get together and have small intimate celebrations of the life, joy and sunshine that was our Terri.

All I know is there is a big heart-filled, jovial laugh, a lot of smiles and rejoicing in the heavens since the arrival of their newest angel. Teresa, you are so loved and will be sorely missed by all!
