April 13, 1942 ~ July 21, 2020

Born in: Martinez, CA
Resided in: Pueblo, CO

Theresa “Terri” Reinert Zupancic, 78, went to meet her Lord on July 21, 2020.  Terri’s family welcomed her into heaven.  She joined her husband of 33 years, Vic Zupancic, along with her parents Ralph and Marie Cox and grandparents, Orville and Dora Younger.

Terri lived with two terminal illnesses for 15 years. God blessed her with many miracles in her life.  She was able to live each day to the fullest by overcoming her pain and letting her faith in God fill her with hope, joy, love and determination to live one day at a time and make it count.

She lives on through her four children, Chuck (Catherine) Reinert, Ed (Janette) Reinert, Cheryl (Dan) Nelson and Lisa Reinert; stepson Donnie Zupancic; nine grandchildren, Amanda (Chris) Duncan, Evan (Cori) Reinert, Jayne Reinert, Hunter Reinert, Fisher Reinert, Kelsey (Ryan)Lack, Courtney (Trent) Johnson, Kirston Dace and Daniel Dace and her eight great grandchildren, Jeep, Connelly, Delaney, Serenity, Emerson, Wyatt, Elliott, Harriett and DJ. Terri is also survived by her two sisters Pam (Jim)Shiner and Becky Cox and her two brothers Mark (Lounell)Cox and David (Marlene) Cox.

Terri loved her pastor and church family dearly. She spent numerous years volunteering with the “Good News Club” and loved sharing the love of Jesus with the school children. It brought her so much joy! Absolutely nothing brought Terri more joy though, than her family. Especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren! She was so proud of each and every one of them. Terri had many special friends and treasured the many lunch dates and fun things they did. She was quite a social butterfly and loved to shop, she was also a great cook, a beautiful writer and quite the storyteller.

Some of her favorite past times were her many years of camping in the Colorado mountains and her time spent with her husband Vic at the Preseren Club with family and friends. She also treasured her many rodder events and those long lasting relationships and fun times, which she loved to share stories of. Terri will be dearly missed by all of her family and friends and leaves behind a lasting legacy filled with so many treasured memories.

We hope you can join Terri’s family at her “Celebration of Life” on Saturday, August 15th at 10 a.m. at the First Church of the Nazarene, 84 Stanford Ave.

(Additional arrangements are pending due to COVID19 and state regulations)

  1. CandleImageSo many very fond and cherished memories of Terri and her family. I grew up in Denver area and often visited the relatives in Pueblo. My mother loved Aunt Marie and Terri so. So glad I was able to reconnect with her on Facebook and had spoken to her on the phone. So long cuz.. Till we meet in heaven..

  2. I worked with Terri at the Pueblo County Attorney’s Office back in the early 1980’s. She was a wonderful teacher and friend. She had such an out-going personality and could fill up a room with her laugh. To this day I can still hear her voice and some of the hilarious things she would say. I am sorry to hear about her passing and wish her family peace.

  3. CandleImageMy thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Over the years I would see her here and there, but especially at the Mill Stop. Whenever I saw Terri, she always had a smile on her face! Hugs and prayers. 🙏🙏
