Teri was born on June 9, 1961 and was the daughter of Donald Bruce Anderson and Kathy Garner. Her love for hospitality was evident to all who were blessed to encounter her. Her restaurant, The Yesterday Cafe which began in Rutledge, Georgia and moved to Greensboro, Georgia in 2005, is one of the town’s most prized establishments and a lively gathering spot for the community that admired her. Her buttermilk pies, which gained national recognition, and her southern hospitality attributed to making Historic Greensboro, Georgia a travel destination. Visitors were often personally greeted by Teri’s warm smiling face when they entered the cafe. She enjoyed traveling, especially taking cruises, which always included her grandchildren. Some of her happiest times were spent with her grandchildren, swimming in the pool, lake, or ocean. She was her grandchildren’s number one fan and rarely missed an opportunity to cheer them on at sporting events and school activities. She was a devoted daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend who was adored by many. She was most proud of her family and loved them deeply. Teri will be missed in countless ways, but her legacy will live forever. She was preceded in death by her sister, Kerry Lynn Anderson.
