LAKEVILLE — Teresa B. Manko, 97, of Lakeville, died March 23, 2022. She was the widow of William H. Manko.

Born on Dec. 30, 1924, she was the daughter of Veronica and Anthony Zaloga.

Originally from Pleasant Mount, Pa., Teri and her husband and two children lived in New Jersey.

She and her husband moved to Lakeville in 1978, when he became plant manager of the Keuffel & Esser Co. in Millerton.

She was an active volunteer with more than 20 years working the jewelry table at the Noble Horizons Auxiliary Annual Holiday Fair. Additionally, she worked many years with Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut at the massive tag sale held every summer.

Teri and her husband were longtime members of Lakeville’s St. Mary Church. As a church fundraiser she made pressed flower pictures, cards and bookmarks, which were sold at the annual Salisbury Fall Festival.

For fun she enjoyed golfing at Hotchkiss, bowling in Great Barrington, gardening and cooking.

She is survived by a daughter, Joyce Manko, and her partner, Kurt Freehauf, of New Jersey; a daughter-in-law, Janet Manko, of Lakeville; a granddaughter, Amber Manko, of Washington, D.C.; a sister, Adeline Heesh, of Lake Como, Pa.; and many beloved nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son, William M. Manko; and five of her brothers and sisters.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Friday, April 1, at 10 a.m. at St. Mary Church in Lakeville. Burial will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Salisbury.
