November 11, 1952 - December 11, 2020
Teresa Lomond Green died December 11, 2020 at age 68, in the loving presence of family at Big Bend Hospice, Tallahassee, after a courageous and lengthy cancer fight. Born November 11, 1952 in Lake City, Florida, Teresa was the baby of four siblings that would grow to nine after the untimely passing of her young mother. After graduating from Columbia High School, Teresa embarked on a 35-year career in public service, retiring in 2010 as a much-respected human resource specialist for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Despite the grave challenges her illness presented, Teresa remained filled with love, positivity, and grace. She was quick with a smile, never complaining or disparaging, and her family and friends will forever remember her as a true Southern lady. Teresa loved all God’s creatures, big and small, and took great joy in nourishing animals inside and outside the home, and nurturing an impressive array of green living things. She loved gardening and planting (while quizzing her husband’s limited botanical knowledge), reading, spending as much time as possible in the sunshine and at the beach, University of Florida Gator sports, and above all her family. Teresa never missed recognizing a birthday or special occasion, and was the glue that held her large, blended family together. Her numerous nieces and nephews, along with their spouses and offspring were deeply important to her and a source of constant joy. Family gatherings at the cabin were cherished. Until her illness prevented it, she was a devoted group fitness attendee, and truly loved her exercise buddies. Teresa was a member of First Presbyterian Church, Tallahassee, and the PEO Sisterhood, Chapter BA, Tallahassee. Teresa was preceded in death by her parents, Julian Parker “JP” and Catherine Buckles Green; and father-in-law Heinz and mother-in-law Celia Ann “Johnnye” Luebkemann. Teresa is survived by Geoff Luebkemann, her spouse and biggest cheerleader; adult stepchildren Jordan Luebkemann and Emily Luebkemann, Tallahassee, FL; siblings Kenneth Green (Meriba), Lake City, FL; Jerry Green (Laura), Issaquah, WA; Maurine Niswander (Philip), Crawfordville, FL; Mike Green (Mimi Johnson), Lake City, FL; Chris Green (Anna), Lake City, FL; Jonathan Green (Mychelle), Lake City, FL; Tracy Matthews (Scott), Lake City, FL; Stephen Garland (Lisa), Fruit Cove, FL; stepmother Delvine Green, Lake City, FL; her precious lifelong best friend Peggy Mansfield Fisette (Russ), Jacksonville, FL; and Oliver, Prince of Altamont, her beloved and spoiled feline. A Service of Witness to the Resurrection is planned for a later date, when pandemic conditions will allow family and friends to safely gather. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts to Big Bend Hospice, 1723 Mahan Center Blvd., Tallahassee, FL 32308, are graciously encouraged. The family is especially grateful to the ministry and congregation of First Presbyterian Church, Tallahassee, the Sisters of PEO, the Sweat Therapy ladies, and the staff of Big Bend Hospice for the considerable comfort and care they all provided Teresa in her final days.
