Obituary for Theresa Jewell Abernethy

Theresa Jewell Abernethy, age 65, longtime resident of Altus, Oklahoma, passed away Thursday, June 17, 2021 at her home in Oklahoma City.

Theresa was born in Crisfield, Maryland on August 28, 1955 to her parents Mike Loyd Rowe and Myrtle Lee (Butler) Rowe. At an early age Theresa moved to Burns Flat where her father was stationed at the Burns Flat Air Force Base and later moved to Altus. Theresa started her working career as a fashion runway model in Oklahoma City. A few years later Theresa owned and operated the Altus Wholesale Store and Snapshop Photo. On August 28, 1999, on her birthday, Theresa married the love of her life, Gary Don Abernethy in Las Vegas, Nevada. Theresa and Gary considered their marriage a treasure and they have been happily married for over twenty-two years. Later, Theresa owned and operated the J&N Frame and Body Shop in Altus and she retired in 2006. Teresa loved to travel with Gary. They often went to islands in the Caribbean and short trips throughout the United States. She loved going anywhere near the ocean or the lake. She enjoyed visiting casinos and finding the best restaurants to dine at. She kept her house beautiful and always waited up for Gary to come home from long days on the farm. Teresa never met a stranger and she truly enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She always put the needs of others before herself. She loved the Lord and shared her faith with everyone she knew.
