On December 29th, Shoney’s lost a loyal and valued employee when veteran server Teresa Cline unexpectedly passed away in her home from an apparent heart attack. Starting to work for Shoney’s on August 8th 1973 at the age of 16, Teresa spent her first years with company at the store once located
on Murphy Road and at the store situated on White Bridge Road, however, she is most remembered by past patrons of the former Belle Meade store and by the many frequent customers she served in Bellevue, a store she helped open more than 12 years ago and where she was employed at the time of her death.
Teresa Cline’s memorial service was held on January 2nd. Her life and service to Shoney’s Company was celebrated by many former and current co-workers and members of management who with her family joined numerous restaurant patrons to remember Teresa as a friend and loved one who brought joy to those who new her best and who offered a welcoming smile to strangers. She will be missed.
