Teresa Lynn Sanzone, 52

Sauk Rapids, MN

August 8, 1971 – April 23, 2024

        Teresa Lynn Sanzone, 52, of Sauk Rapids, MN, passed away peacefully in her own home on April 23, 2024, from breast cancer.

       Teresa was born on August 8, 1971, to Thomas Sanzone and Claudia Foley (Sanzone) in Chicago, IL. In 1987, Teresa married James Martin and went on to have three children, Roxann, Anthony and Racheal. Ultimately, their relationship ended and shortly after the birth of Racheal, Teresa moved herself and all three children to Minnesota for a fresh start.

       For many years Teresa worked as a press operator for various print companies in the area. She took pride in her work as a female operator because it was a male-dominated industry. When she could no longer work as a press operator due to her mental and physical health, she struggled to find a career that fulfilled her as much as that one did. She tried many different things, but nothing ever stuck.

       When Teresa wasn’t working, her hobbies included being the best nana to her grandchildren, crafting, gardening, getting tattoos, playing dice, partying with friends and hosting her own firework shows.

       Teresa was preceded in death by her mother, Claudia, her brother, Thomas Foley and his son, her nephew, Tommy Foley.

       Teresa is survived by her two daughters, Roxann and Rachel Martin, her son, Anthony Martin, seven grandchildren, her father, Thomas, her two nieces Brittany and Bridget and many loyal friends and extended family members.

       A friends and family gathering with food will take place immediately following the service at Municipal Park in Sauk Rapids, MN (1001 River Ave N).
