Obituary

Teresa Marie (Meterko) Schleef, 50, of Delancey, passed away peacefully on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2021, at Connemaugh Hospital.

She was born in DuBois on May 4, 1971, a daughter of Adda Louise (Biggie) Meterko and the late John Andrew “Simon” Meterko.  Her mother survives and resides in Delancey.

Teresa was a 1989 Graduate of Punxsutawney Area High School.  Following graduation, she earned a degree in Sports Medicine from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

She chose Sports Medicine because of her love of sports in high school, she played basketball at SSCD and PAH.  She was an outstanding player and a tough opponent to go up against.

Teresa worked as a manager of Domino’s Pizza in Indiana for many years.

When she moved back home to Delancey, her immediate family became her focus.  She loved to take care of her brothers, and particularly her brother Damian whom she had a special bond with and lovingly nicknamed him “Bubbass.”  Damian looked after Teresa as much as she looked after him.  Teresa had a very special unbreakable bond with her sister’s Cathy, Mary and Adda.

Teresa loved to cook and bake.  She loved celebrating the birthday’s of others and always baked a cake for their special day. She loved parties and gift giving, even with the little she had to give.  She was a kind and loving spirit, she was happy and go lucky and dealt with each difficulty with a bright outlook and a thankful heart.

She is dearly loved and survived by not only her mother, Adda, but five siblings as well; Adda Fegley and husband Bill of State College, Mary Meterko-Hayes and husband Sean of Indiana, Leo Meterko, Peter Meterko and Damian “Bubbass” Meterko, all of Delancey; nieces and nephews that she cherished, Shea Bevak, Billy Fegley, Bryton Fegley, Brent Fegley, Adda Fegley, Adrianna Fegley and Malik Meterko; brother in-law, Sam Bevak of Delancey. 

She was welcomed at the gates of heaven by her father, infant daughter Sahara Schleef, sister, Cathy Bevak and brother, John Meterko.
