Theresa Marie McVey, age 54 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Thursday, September 5, 2019, at Capital Region Medical Center, surrounded by her family.

She was born on September 22, 1964 in St. Louis, Mo. the daughter of Jacob and Mary Ellen (Myers) McVey, Jr.

A lifelong resident of Jefferson City, Theresa attended the Kirschner State School. She worked with Capitol Projects for over 30 years starting in 1986. During her time at Capitol Projects she worked on their ABB ferrules and studs job until ill health forced her to retire in January 2018.

Theresa loved to watch television especially soap operas. The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful were her favorites. She was a huge country music fan and faithfully read her country magazines each week. If asked, she would tell you she was Tim McGraw’s biggest fan. Theresa also enjoyed fishing with her family, long car rides and simply being outdoors. Other hobbies included coloring and baking cookies. Time spent with her friends or her cats, David and Tasha, was always considered special by Theresa.

Theresa will be remembered for her warm and welcoming personality that made her truly loved by all. Her smile would light up her face and brought joy to all who knew her, especially all those that she waved at daily. The saying, "walking on sunshine" definitely referred to Theresa.

Survivors include: her sister, Mary Ann Speckhals (husband Jay) of the home; her brother, Jacob McVey (companion Sarah Lane) of Jefferson City; and her niece and nephew, Rhonda Hilton (husband Rick) and Ron Hassler, Jr.

She was preceded in death by her parents. Her father passed away on the same day in 1995.

Visitation will be held at Freeman Mortuary from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, September 11, 2019.

A funeral service will be conducted at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, September 11, 2019 in the Freeman Chapel with Celebrant Gara Loskill officiating. Graveside services and interment will be held at Hawthorn Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Alzheimer’s Association, 2609 East Broadway, Suite 119, Columbia, Mo. 65201.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Freeman Mortuary.
