Teresa (TJ) Spiller, 58, of Joshua, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 in the arms of her adoring husband, Dan.
She was born on June 20, 1959 in Brownwood to Tom G. (Buddy) Wilks, Jr. and Leta Wilks Petzold. She attended Brownwood High School where she was an outstanding track star, volleyball player, and softball player. On Feb. 12, 2001 she and Dan Spiller were married in Joshua, and celebrated 16 years of togetherness.
TJ worked many years at Savills and then her Prince Charming whisked her away to work with him side by side. They had many endeavors that included Sandy Beach at Lake Brownwood, Land on Hand Properties, and Wild John Construction. Though they have had many jobs, the one they were most successful at was Jus’ Hav’n Fun.
Her many interest were her children, family, and friends. She loved everything about the outdoors — hunting in the winter, fishing at the coast, and talking to her plants all year round. She spent her summers on the lake jet skiing, tubing and showing that at 58 she can still solum. Above all she loved her time with her kids which included her smallest child Zoye, family, and the man of her dreams.
TJ is survived by her loving husband, Dan; son, Robby Watson Jr. and wife Delia of Brownwood; daughter, Terrye Jo Castillo and husband Jose Castillo of Odessa; sisters, Annette Wilks Brown of Joshua, Cassie Foster and husband Danny of Levelland; mother, Leta Wilks Petzold and husband Jim of Brownwood; one grandchild, Matilyn De Leon Watson; nieces and nephews, Jenye and Jeff, Kobe, Mikey, Heather and Bryan, Bailye, and Rachell and a host of other family and friends whom she enjoyed being with.
She was preceded in death by her father, Tom G. (Buddy) Wilks Jr.; paternal grandparents, Tom Wilks Sr. and Agnes Wilks; and maternal grandparents, Russell and Alva Stanley.
Visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1 at Heartland Funeral Home and services will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Fairview Cemetery in Grosvenor.
