Teresa Ann (Gray) Muhs died May 29, 2019 after a battle against a disease that does not follow the rules. Teresa fought a courageous battle against breast cancer. Her husband and daughter were at her side, and she was surrounded by the loving spirit of many family and friends.

Teresa was born April 11, 1955 in Lewistown, to Betty (Cripps) and Edward Gray. Teresa graduated in 1973 from Fergus County High School and after that she moved to Norfolk, Nebraska to go to college. While she was in Nebraska, she met the love of her life, her soul mate, Dale Muhs. They were united in marriage on July 3, 1977 in Lewistown. Together they had two children, Wendy and Jeremy. Teresa was a stay at home mom and grandmother for most of her life. Her priority was always her husband and family. During their life together, Dale and Teresa lived in Lewistown, Boulder City, Nevada and Cody, Wyoming.

Teresa worked various jobs after Wendy and Jeremy went to school. It was during her employment at furniture stores in Cody she met many of the people who became dear friends. Of those friends, Teresa met Audrey and from this friendship, a group called The Back Yard Gang was formed. This group of friends created numerous wonderful memories together, and have supported each other through many life events.

After she finished working at the furniture stores, Teresa stayed home to be a full-time grandmother. She spent many days with her grandchildren creating priceless memories. Teresa loved to travel with her family and friends. She enjoyed going to drag races with Dale. She enjoyed camping and spending time with her family in the mountains.
