Obituary for Teresa Inman-Kane
Teresa Lynn lnman-Kane, 48, of Battle Creek, passed away Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at her
home surrounded by her family. She was born May 4, 1968 in Battle Creek, the daughter of
Phillip and Kathy (Gehrman) lnman. She graduated from Delton Kellogg High School class of
1986. On June 18, 1994 Teresa married Timothy W. Sheffer. Together they were blessed with
twin daughters, Nora Ashleigh and Courtney Ann. The marriage ended just shy of 20 years.
Teresa married Steven Kane on December 24, 2016. Teresa’s last 5 years were her happiest, with Steve by her side. Their favorite pass time was taking spontaneous trips together. Teresa had a passion for helping disadvantaged children with their education. She was a Paraprofessional for the Delton Kellogg Public Schools and cherished the children she was privileged to work with. Teresa also worked for the Banfield General Store for 6.5 years. Teresa had a contagious smile and an even bigger heart. She was always there to lend a helping hand and show concern for others. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and friends, particularly her daughters. She loved off-roading in Jeeps and 4-wheelers. Collecting S'mores ornaments was a passion for Teresa, but more than that she really enjoyed campfires and eating s'mores. Teresa spent many days in her father’s garage working on cars with him and of course occasionally roasting a hot dog or marshmallow in the wood stove. She took up golfing and enjoyed golfing with her step-mother Grethel. Teresa enjoyed traveling to the U.P. and spending time on the Lake Michigan shoreline. Her favorite was creating dribble castles in the sand. Teresa became quite fond of outdoor sports, learning how to fish and hunt with her husband Steve and even shooting her first spike horn 3 years ago.
She is survived by her husband, Steve; daughters, Nora Sheffer and Courtney (fiancé David
Warren) Sheffer; mother, Kathy (Donald) DuCharme; father, Phillip (Grethel) lnman; brother,
Todd (Michelle Palmer) lnman; sister, Tonya (Gary) Fox; and many aunts, uncles, nieces,
nephews, and cousins.
