Remembering Teresa


It was with great sadness that I read that Teresa Kasner has died after a short illness.  She started her blog about the same time as me and was an amazing woman whose zest for life was infectious.  She loved the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon where she lived, worked to make it a better place and was rightly proud of her achievements. 

Her pictures of The Gorge made me want to see it for myself and in March 2020 me and Mr Clicky managed to do just that.   Teresa and Dayle took us to their farm and of a tour of the area, showed us the Vista House that she was Director of and helped restore, to the marina where they kept their yacht, and of course, to Multnomah Falls where she was a passionate volunteer in the visitors centre.  She was angry and devastated by the wild fires there in 2017 which burnt       50 000 acres of forest that were started by teenagers letting fireworks off.

She touched many people worldwide, always commenting on every blog post she subscribed to with kind words and locally through her volunteering work.  My heart goes out to Dayle and their family.

Having met her I can tell you she had a cheeky grin, a smile, a wicked sense of humour and was just the loviest person.  

Goodbye Teresa my friend, I will miss you.  CN xx


  1. So sudden and so sad! She'll be missed dearly! Lovely photo of you and Teresa...wonderful keepsake. Amanda x

  2. This is a beautiful tribute. You have one up on me because I have never met her in person, but I feel like she was a true friend and will be missed. Take care of yourself.

  3. Such a good remembrance and lovely to see again the photo of Teresa and you together at that happy time...

  4. Such nice words. I think many of us thought of her in the same way, even though we'd never met her (although it felt as though we had).

  5. Ah what a special memory to remember. I always associate Teresa with those wonderful table decorations that so welcoming to all, even us humble folks through our screens.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
