Teisha L. James, 46, of 275 E, passed away following a brief, courageous battle with cancer at 4:28 p.m. August 12, 2014, at Our Hospice of South Central Indiana Inpatient Facility in the company of her loving family.
Her greatest passion in life was spending time with her family. She enjoyed attending sporting, cheerleading and 4-H events and shopping with her daughters. She liked to spend time by the pool and take trips to Florida with family and friends.
In addition to her family, Teisha took great pride in decorating her home and keeping it spotless. She also liked to supervise her husband with home improvements.
She enjoyed working in the yard and planting flowers, always with her miniature chihuahuas nearby. She was a great sport when her girls raised pigs in the backyard for the county fair.
Born October 24, 1967, Teisha was the daughter of Mike and Lois Flickinger. She was a lifelong resident of Columbus.
Teisha worked at the Bartholomew County Board of Health for 25 years, rarely missing work until recent health issues. She earned an associate's degree in business from Indiana Business college.
She was preceded in death by her father, Mickel “Mike” Flickinger.
Survivors include her devoted husband, Terry, who provided loving care for his best friend until the end; daughters, Tara and Taylor James; sons, Tyler Flickinger and Nicholas James; her mother, Lois Flickinger; and a brother, Blaine Flickinger.
The funeral will be conducted at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 16, 2014 at Lighthouse Tabernacle Full Gospel Church, 2282 Indiana Avenue, with the Rev. Steve Allman officiating. Calling will be from 10 a.m. Saturday until service time at the church. Burial will be at Flat Rock Baptist Cemetery.
Memorial contributions may be made to Our Hospice of South Central Indiana through the funeral home.
Services were entrusted to the Jewell-Rittman Family Funeral Home.
You are invited to view her video tribute Saturday, light a virtual candle and send a message to the family via the internet.
