Thelma "Teddy" Harriet

(Bruening) Saunders

June 1, 1922

June 7, 2021

Thelma Harriet Saunders (Teddy) was born on 6/1/1922 to Ida and Wm. Harry Bruening. She was raised in Colorado Springs, and although it was the depression, she says her family never felt poor. She married Joe Saunders in 1947 and had 4 daughters, Janet Massaro, Jo Anne Camara, Judy Saunders, and Jacqui Saunders. She loved animals, gardening, her 6 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren. She drove a Model T and lived to see men living in space. She learned to use a computer in her 70's, camped with the family into her 80's, and remarked that she had lived a good life. Teddie passed away on June 7th, 2021, just 6 days past her 99th birthday, at home with her family. A private scattering of her ashes will be held next May.
