After graduating from Columbia College, Teresa Teal married Beler Boswell and spent nearly 46 years as a loving and devoted wife and mother. Teresa’s fun spirit and spunky personality brought joy to many. Although the last few years of Teresa’s life were extremely taxing on her mind and body, there was one thing that consistently brought her joy: family and friends. The love, laughter, and happy memories that Teresa created will live on forever in the hearts of all her loved ones. Teresa worked in accounting and customer service for 33 years with Compass Group, Canteen Vending Services’ division in their Columbia, SC and Baltimore, MD offices.
