    On behalf of the members of Ogden Fire Company we wish to express our deepest sympathies to the Dewees family. Teresa was a Honorary Life Member, and served as Company Secretary at one point. Teresa also gave freely of her time and talents to other emergency response organizations, being always willing to assist with her big heart. The family should be proud of her contributions to the Community and Delaware County. Teresa will be missed but not forgotten.
