Theresa Ann Bratcher

October 10, 1967 - January 1, 2019

Bratcher, Theresa Ann, 51, of Brooksville, Florida passed away on January 1, 2019. Theresa was born on October 10, 1967 in Ferndale, Michigan to Jackie and Billie Gossett, and she was the youngest daughter of six children.

In 1993, Theresa married Roger Bratcher, and they were together for 10 years. They had two beautiful children, Sandra and Ryan, who were Theresa’s greatest joys and proudest accomplishments in life.

Theresa was a certified nurse’s assistant and had a special gift for providing care to the elderly and infirmed. She was dedicated to caring for and serving others at various care facilities in the Tampa Bay Area.

Theresa enjoyed the outdoors, especially spending time with family and friends around the fire pit. She had a wicked sense of humor and loved making others laugh. She had a green thumb for gardening and had no problem getting “down and dirty” doing lawn removal with her father’s business or working on a friend’s farm.

She was the beloved mother of Ryan Allan Bratcher of New Port Richey, Florida and Sandra Louise Bratcher of Orlando, Florida. She is survived by two sisters, Sandra Daniel of Idaho Falls, Idaho and Cheryl Cooper of Royal Oak, Michigan; one brother, William (Bill) Gossett of Boise, Idaho; aunts Marguerite McIntyre and Nora Chimner of Greenbush, Michigan, and Ann Peters of Russellville, Kentucky and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and close family friends.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Christopher Cooper (1992) and John Henry Cooper (2012); her mother, Jackie Gossett (2010); and father, Billie M. Gossett (2011).

A celebration of life memorial service will be held on Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Michels & Lundquist Funeral home located at 5228 Trouble Creek Rd., New Port Richey.

What our families say...

“When my sister-in-law passed away unexpectedly, me and my family were thrust into this process for the first time. Charlie Webster was my first and only contact with Michels & Lundquist and he was FANTASTIC from start to finish. He was sensitive, understanding and fully explained the process and made things easy for me during a very difficult time. The services were carried out flawlessly and the pricing was very reasonable. I am very thankful for his kind words and conscientious work. I would HIGHLY recommend Michels & Lundquist and Mr. Webster.”
