Teresita Lacson Lampe

November 6, 1936 — June 1, 2024


Teresita Lacson Lampe (1936–2024)

Terrie Lampe was, first and foremost, a child of God. She was a wife to Wesley Lampe for 58 years, mother to four, grandmother to 12, great-grandmother to 10, and retired from Georgia State as Professor Emerita of Chemistry. She passed peacefully into the arms of God on June 1 in Danielsville Georgia.

Terrie was the youngest of 13 children - born to father Emiliano Lacson and mother Concepcion Ramos Lacson. She was born near Kabankalan City in the Philippines and spent many of her younger years avoiding the Japanese patrols and war planes of World War II. Seven of her brothers died before she can remember.

Terrie excelled in school at an early age and was given a scholarship to study science. Terrie's father was a Christian but, prior to the marriage, an agreement was made that all the children would be raised in the Roman Catholic faith. Terrie always wondered what was in that Bible that her dad read all the time. When she left home, one of the first things that she did was get a New Testament Bible and start reading it. Four years later, she had completed her BS degree from Adamson University - with honors!

After Adamson, Terrie was offered a position at Mass General Hospital in Boston MA. Within 7 months of moving to the USA, she accepted Jesus as her savior and joined a local church in Boston.

After two years at Mass General, Terrie moved on to graduate studies at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. While at Wayne State, she met the love of her life, a young Chrysler engineer from East Detroit - Wesley Lampe. They married in 1965. In 1966, Terrie completed her Masters and Phd of BioChemistry in a record time of 3.5 years!  

After graduation, Wes and Terrie felt led to the Mission Field and went to Italy with the missionary group Operation Mobilization. They travelled across Europe and had their first child in England. By 1969, they were back in the States for their second son to be born. A daughter was born in 1971 and the youngest son in 1973. Terrie stayed at home with the children until the youngest graduated high school in 1991. At that time, she went into teaching Chemistry; first at Dekalb College and later at Georgia State. She was also very active in her husband's churches in Detroit, Lansing, and, later, Georgia. Terrie felt led to use her position as a teacher to reach as many students as she could with the gospel of Jesus. Many of the nurses trained in Georgia went through courses that she either taught or helped develop.

Terrie retired from teaching in 2010 and moved to Danielsville, GA. She was active at Riverside Baptist Church in Madison County. She was blessed with 4 children, 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
