Flight Attendant Who Lost Her Life In Massachusetts Plane Crash Was Easton Resident

Posted:
EASTON, Md.- It's a harsh reality Teresa Benhoff's family is still coming to grips with.

"I still can't believe she's not with us.  I'm just thinking she'll still come home from her trip," said Lisa Crutchley, Teresa's sister.

Tuesday, Teresa's two sisters and brother are trying to pick up the pieces of their lives, which were suddenly shattered when news of this weekend's Massachusetts plane crash came.  Teresa was born and raised in Dorchester county.  Her sister Donna Payne says she loved exploring the world.

"She just liked to travel, she'd been all over the place with them.  Very happy, fly by the seat of her pants kind of person," said Payne

Teresa's job as a flight attendant with the Katz family was demanding.  Sometimes she was away for weeks.  But her brother Joe Hinch says she was always planning the next big get-together.

"She was always very caring, making sure we were together at the holidays, birthday parties, whatever, she was always very willing to set everything up, even Fourth of July, she was always always there for us," said Hinch

"It's hard.  But I know she's looking down on us," said younger sister Lisa.

Theresa's family says the support that's pouring in from all corners of the globe is what's helping them get through this difficult time.

"Her legacy is around everywhere.  It's all of us, it's our family, the people she's touched, the lives she's touched.  It's everywhere.  From this community to all around the world, people have called from all around the world to give their condolences to us," said Hinch.

The family is still waiting for Teresa's body to be found and brought home.  In the meantime, they say they are taking each day one minute at a time, and trying to laugh and smile as much as possible, saying that is what their fun loving sister would have wanted.

However, Zalewski claims he was told by Kent County the frogs would be classified as dangerous animals, even though he said the amphibians are not poisonous when held in captivity. "I'd put one in my mouth or whatever. They're completely harmless," he said. Kent Co...
