Obituary for Theodosia F. Douglas

Theodosia Fouts Douglas. 90, of Topeka, passed away Monday, February 26, 2018, at Aldersgate Village. Theodosia, also known as ‘Teddy’, was born in Bigelow, KS to Rebecca and Smith Fouts. Teddy was one of 10 children and attended school in Rossville.
Teddy was a life-long & devout member of Lane Chapel CME Church and spent countless hours volunteering through the church to help others. Teddy was a Licensed Medical Health Technician at the Topeka State Hospital for 40 + years – and loved helping her patients heal.
Teddy was devoted to her family – especially when they were in their time of need. Whether it was cooking daily meals for her grandmother in law, or caring for and running errands for her mother-in-law, she was there without fail.
Teddy’s biggest joy came from her children and grandchildren, who she spoiled with love and affection – and good home cooking. Her famous cinnamon rolls and apple pies were enjoyed by all!
Teddy is survived by her husband of 69 years, Wilber Douglas Jr, and her children Wilber Douglas, III (‘Yogi’) and his wife Joyce, Rhonda Grayson, Lynnieve (‘Nieve’) Jones and her husband Grady, and Shelley Douglas Slachowitz and her husband Joel. Teddy is also survived by 8 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, 1 great-great grandchild and several loving nieces and nephews.
Teddy was a loving wife, mother, sister and friend. She loved and was loved by many. Her presence will be missed. Her family takes solace in knowing Teddy is with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
