Teresa Cedillo of Lubbock passed away on Friday, August 28, 2020 at the age of 78. She was born to Pablo and Maria (Balderas) Valdez in Eagle Pass, Texas on February 6, 1942. She grew up in Petersburg where she met the love of her life, Eusebio Cedillo and on November 15, 1957 they began a 63 year marriage. Teresa was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother to her family, as well as to many others who called her “Mom”. She had a big heart and was a wonderful cook who made sure you had something to eat anytime you came to visit.
