March 1, 1958 - November 29, 2017

Salem – Teli A Ragsdale returned to her LORD in the early hours of morning, Wednesday, November 29, at the age of 59. Teli was born in Salem, Oregon. Her family moved to the Aumsville area soon afterwards, with Teli settling back in Salem for her adult life.

She is survived by her life partner Gary, daughter Jennifer, beloved grandchildren Samantha and Zairq, the many children with no grandparents that she embraced into her life, her brother Dan and of course, her two labs Sadie and River. Teli will always be remembered for her kindness, loving heart and giving spirit.

Teli and I and our friend Dorothy were always together when we were in high school. We had many laughs and adventures. We all raised our families and then found each other again several years ago. Teli was so fun and kind and thoughtful. She told me at the hospital that she was so very happy we found each other again. I felt exactly the same. I love her and am sad she is no longer in this world, but I believe she is in heaven watching over us all.
