Monica “Teaka” Lynn Ayers, 68, of McGregor, died Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2022, at her home. Teaka was born May 28, 1954, to John and Iretta (Clark) Elliott in Boscobel, Wis.


Teaka was united in marriage with Jon Ayers on March 26, 1977, and two children were born to this union. Throughout the years, Teaka worked as a welder, in healthcare and retired from Cabela’s. She had a fierce work ethic and took pride in being the only female welder, back in the day. She loved all whom she worked with and met through the years as family.


Teaka leaves a legacy behind filled with love, compassion and a stubbornness that she passed down to her children. Family was her love. She shared her love of her grandkids with all whom she met. Teaka loved the yearly tradition she and her beloved sister Julie started, their annual Crane Count. Teaka’s humor, wit, heart and laugh will be missed by many.


Surviving Teaka are her beloved husband of 45 years, Jon Ayers of McGregor; her children, Korey (Anja) Ayers of McGregor, and Abby (Todd Wilhelm) Martin of Dubuque; her parents, Jack and Pat Elliott of Marquette; six grandchildren; one great-grandchild on the way; and her brother, Steve (Donna) Elliott of Portage, Wis.


Preceding Teaka in death were her sister, Julie Geno; brother, John Eldon Elliott; and many friends and family.


Visitation was on Aug. 20, at Thornburg-Grau Funeral Home and Cremation Service in McGregor.


Graveside service was also Aug. 20, at Pleasant Grove Cemetery in McGregor, with Rev. Bruce Hanson as the officiant.


Thornburg-Grau Funeral Home and Cremation Service of McGregor, Iowa is assisting the family with arrangements.
