Theresia Gillie of Hallock, Minnesota is a survivor. Faced with financial challenges, her husband, Keith, took his own life just over two years ago. “It isn’t something you get over, it’s something you live with.”
Life has changed for Theresia. “The life I knew no longer existed. I don’t get to have my old life back.” Theresia is feeling stronger. From her own experience, she encourages others to be aware and be ready to help. “Watch out for your neighbors. Look for anything not normal. If they’re struggling, help them out.”
Theresia continues to farm today, sharing equipment with two of her neighbors. You can hear her emotional story in this edition of TransFARMation.
