In 1989, Teta married the love of her life, David Henry Shannon. She often referred to him as "Henry the VIII". He was her King and he treated her like a queen. He adored her. Life in their kingdom was full of fishing, playing bingo, going to yard sales, an occasional trip to the casino, and self-sacrifice. She loved to sew and do crafts, and made gifts for everyone. Her heart was made of gold and she always put her family and others before herself.
