Theresa Arch Rattler, 73, of Wrights Creek in Cherokee passed away Saturday, March 31, 2018 at her residence.

Theresa (A.K.A. Nan) was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend.  She loved to cook, do her bead work, sew, and crochet but most of all playing bingo.  Nan always welcomed everyone with open arms and no one ever left her house hungry.  Although she is no longer with us and no longer in any pain, she will be deeply missed, always.  She was a member of the Cherokee Wesleyan Church.  

She is survived by her husband, Walter Rattler; daughter, Dawn and husband Dave Jumper; Step-Daughters, Debora and Loretta; Granddaughters, Clareece Rattler, Karina Squirell, Brionna Jumper, Brianna Lambert, and Ness and husband Frank John; very special Great Grandsons, Zaynon, Andre, Liam, and Benny; Special Nieces, Jessica Maney & Sons, Arlene Squirrel & family; special nephews, Booger Arch and Horace Arch; Special Friends, The Golden Girls Mary Oocumma and Mary Jumper, Bo Crowe & Tiff Panther, G-Pa Poke, and Daniel Carrol.

Theresa was preceded in death by her brothers, Bud Arch, Charles, Frederick, Clayton, Trean, and George Craig; Sisters, Sis, Belle, Vang, and Pauline.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 beginning at 5 pm at the Cherokee United Methodist Church where the body will remain until the hour of service on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 11 AM.  Burial will follow at the Rattler Cemetery on Wrights Creek.  Pallbearers will be among family and friends.

The girls and I are so sorry for your loss. I am so thankful that Nan was a part of T-Dawg's life. She loved her very much. Iwodi was lucky enough to eat some of Nan's ramps and she said that they reminded her of my mom's ramps, lol. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you!!!
