In honor of our beloved Teddi Irene Brooklyn Dovan…

Teddy was 58 years old, born in Sanford, Florida, on July 6, 1963, and passed away at the Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital in Longwood, Florida, on November 24, 2021. Teddi graduated from Seminole High School. Until her passing, Teddi worked for over ten years at First Presbyterian Church of Lake Mary as the Church Administrator and Elder.  While there, she served in many roles. Teddi also worked for a Radiology Group as a billing manager for 22 years. Teddy was a true servant of the Lord, and she loved her church. She was a role model for many of the children and people she met. She volunteered many hours, especially at Christmas, for the enjoyment of the children, as well as the many adults. Teddi was a kindhearted caring and very giving person to anyone in need. She never judged others but loved everyone - her family, friends, and those she met.  She will be greatly missed.

Death is a Doorway

On the wings of death, the soul takes flight,
Into the land where there is no night;
For those who believe what the Savior said,
Will rise in glory though they are dead;
So death comes to us just to open the door,
To the Kingdom of God and life evermore.
