Theresa Lamszus


I was born at the Union County Hospital here in Anna, Illinois in 1969. I was one of the last babies born in the maternity ward here in town and my Mama always told me they got one look at me and shut the Maternity Ward down and never opened it again. I am married to my High School sweetheart. We have a son who will be 30 this year. My Mother-in law is Jean Lamszus and she is about the best friend a person could ever hope for. I am so glad she is my friend. She introduced me to my Church Family and I count myself blessed to be the Administrative Assistant for the Anna United Methodist Church.

Your Sister in Christ,
Theresa Lamszus
