Obituary of Teresa Waters

Teresa Dixon Waters, age 58, of Catonsville Maryland, Transition on Friday, December 29, 2017. Ms. Waters was born Sept 1, 1959 in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1968, Teresa and a very small group of African American children became the first to attend the all-white Johnnycake Elementary School in Catonsville. The principal believed that Teresa and three other siblings were at the wrong elementary school, so he visited Teresa's house to "ensure" the kids were going to the correct elementary school. Nevertheless, Teresa demonstrated excellence in reading, spelling and math and often tutor her siblings and neighborhood children. Teresa is survived by two sons, Morris Edward III and William and two grandsons Cory and Eli, her mother, six siblings and a host of other relatives.
