Lady Vol Mourns The Loss Of Her Mother

University of Tennessee Lady Vol rising sophomore Cait McMahan’s mother, Teresa, passed away on Tuesday, May 29 after a courageous battle with cancer. Ms. McMahan is survived by her children, son Reese and daughter Cait.

“This is a sad day for the McMahan and Lady Vol families,” said Tennessee head coach Pat Summitt. “Having had the opportunity to know Teresa – she had incredible faith and fight and truly was a great mother.
Our thoughts go out to Cait, Reese and the McMahan family.”

Cait, a native of Maryville, Tennessee, just completed her rookie season on the Lady Vol Basketball Team where she helped lead the squad to the Southeastern Conference and NCAA Championships.

There will be no receiving of friends for Ms. McMahan.
Instead, according to our partners at the News Sentinel &, family and friends may gather for a graveside service at 2:00p Thursday at Grandview Cemetery.
McCammon-Ammons-Click Funeral Home in Maryville is handling the arrangements.
