Teresa Viola Huss

Friday, September 4, 2015

Teresa Viola Huss, 60, of Nevada, Mo., passed from this life Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015, at the Big Spring Nursing Facility, in Humansville, Mo. She was born July 11, 1955, in Nevada, the daughter of Frank and Mary Ellen (Little) Nunez.

Teresa grew up in Nevada and graduated with the Nevada Class of 1974. Shortly thereafter, she completed an x-ray training course through the Job Corps in Excelsior Springs. Then, for a short time, she was employed at the State Hospital in Nevada. In her early life she was united in marriage to Samuel Ahmed and together the couple became parents to one daughter, Fatima Marie, who passed away when she was just two days old. Later, on Nov. 12, 1983, she married Stephen Randolph Huss and they were the proud parents of one son and one daughter.

Teresa was a longtime member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and spent many hours as a volunteer with Nevada Headstart and West Central. She was a wonderful mother and homemaker who loved to cook. During holiday time she could be found in the kitchen preparing many of the family's favorite dishes and candies -- homemade enchiladas, cheeseballs, pies, fudge, and white chocolate covered pretzels. But everyone's favorite were her special recipe peanut butter balls -- she was known for this confection by all of her family both young and old and many of her friends. She was greatly loved by all and will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered.

Survivors include her children, Stephen Andrew Huss, of Cypress, Texas, and Camille Dawn Huss, of Nevada; one brother, Paul Nunez and wife, Dana, of Kansas City, Mo.; three sisters, Margreat Bolser and husband, Larry, of Wheatland, Norma Dayringer of Nevada, and Martha Tipling of Wheatland; and nieces, nephews, other extended family and many friends. Aside from her daughter, Fatima, she was preceded in death by her parents; four brothers, Francis Nunez, Robert Nunez, Donald Nunez, and Jim Nunez; two sisters, Angelina Geary and Mickey Gillespie; and her husband, Stephen, who passed away May 12, 2014.

Funeral services for Teresa Viola Huss are scheduled for 2 p.m., Friday, Sept. 4, at Ferry Funeral Home, in Nevada, with the Rev. Matthew Benjamin officiating. Visitation is scheduled from 1 to 2 p.m., just prior to the service, also at the funeral home. Interment will follow in Mt. Calvary Cemetery, in Nevada.

Contributions may be made in her memory to St. Mary's School in care of Ferry Funeral Home.
