Early life

Teri Lynn Hatcher was born on December 8, 1964 in Palo Alto, California, the only child of Esther (née Beshur), a computer programmer who worked for Lockheed Martin, and Owen Walker Hatcher, Jr., a nuclear physicist and electrical engineer.[2][3] Her father is of English, Welsh and Irish descent (Hatcher has said that he also has Choctaw ancestry); her mother is of half Syrian and half Czech and Irish ancestry.[2]

Hatcher took ballet lessons at the San Juan School of Dance in Los Altos and grew up in Sunnyvale, California,[2] where she attended Mango Junior High (now Sunnyvale Middle School), Fremont High School in Sunnyvale and De Anza College in Cupertino.[4] At De Anza College she studied mathematics and engineering.[3]

In March 2006, Hatcher alleged that she was sexually abused from the age of five by Richard Hayes Stone, an uncle by marriage who was later divorced by Hatcher's aunt. She said her parents were unaware of the abuse at the time.[5] In 2002, she assisted Santa Clara County prosecutors with their indictment of Stone for a more recent molestation that had led his female victim to commit suicide at the age of 14.[2][5] Stone pleaded guilty to four counts of child molestation and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.[6] Hatcher said she told the prosecutors about her own abuse because she was haunted by thoughts of the 14-year-old girl who shot herself, and feared Stone might escape conviction. Stone died of colon cancer on August 19, 2008, having served six years of his sentence.[7]
