April 11, 1947 - March 13, 2022
Teresina (Terry) E. Longval 74, of Eden Prairie, MN and Mesa, AZ, proud mother of three and grandmother of seven, passed away peacefully on March 13, 2022. Terry was born on April 11, 1947, in Sioux City, Iowa. On November 25, 1967, Terry married the love of her life, Joseph (Joe) Longval. They raised one daughter, Leslie and two sons, Brent and Scott. While cancer was the cause of death, Terry will forever be remembered for how she lived with compassion, positivity, curiosity, and kindness. Her genuine and caring personality was infectious, and led her to forge many lifelong friendships, which she cherished deeply. Nothing gave Terry more joy than her family. She was a devoted and loving wife, who treasured her 52 years of marriage to Joe. She was a supportive and loving mother, who always put her children's interests first. She passed along the ultimate gift to her children - a blueprint on how to raise families through unconditional love, encouragement and faith. She relished her role as a grandmother and she was an enthusiastic cheerleader at her grandchildren's numerous activities and sports and a model for the type of person to be. She continued to model this even in death; as an organ donor she gave the gift of sight to others. Terry was also an accomplished athlete throughout her life. She played basketball in high school and in later years developed a passion for tennis and golf. In recent years, she was an active member of the Las Sendes golf club in Arizona where she participated in multiple leagues and developed treasured friendships. And while Terry is no longer here in body, she has left us with her strong, life-long faith which has guided her to the Kingdom of God, where she has been reunited with Joe. Terry was preceded in death by her husband and soulmate, Joe, her father Isadore, mother Lilian, and sister, Betsey. Terry is survived her children, Leslie Witterschein (Joseph) of Chanhassen, J. Brent Longval (Lesley) of Shorewood and J. Scott Longval (Elizabeth) of St. Paul, along with seven grandchildren; Hannah, Henry and Sadie Witterschein; Andrew and Anna Longval; Mack and Gage Longval; sister Danese Anderson of Bloomington, and brother, Keith (Dorothy) Kuhn of Moville, IA.
