¿TIENE UN RECUERDO O UNA CONDOLENCIA QUE AÑADIR?

AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

Theresa was a dear friend in high school. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a huge heart! She was always lifting others up with her enthusiasm and love. We kept in contact throughout the years. Her great love for people and animals was so evident in her teaching and rescue efforts . She simply was one in a million! I feel so blessed to have known her and will miss her joyful laugh! My sympathy and prayers to her family

Theresa is an amazing soul. She was a good friend of my mother and she threw my mother's baby shower for me. I have very fond memories of Theresa when I was a little boy.

We would go to the beach everytime Theresa would come down and visit us from Iowa. I distinctly remember going to Caladesi Island with Theresa a few times and everytime she would always get a great suntan.

Theresa was a defender and protector for the most vulnerable beings on this planet. Children with developmental disabilities and domesticated animals.

Those that knew Theresa knew she had a HUGE heart. She was one of a kind everyone that knew her well loved her! I will miss Theresa dearly!

I met Theresa during our brief teaching days in Arizona. Fresh out of college, she was a real dynamo with amazing presence, humor and heart. Over the years, we'd visit and hit the beach when she spent time in Florida. Theresa was a beautiful human being. Rest in peace, precious friend.

I remember Miss Braune from Ames High School. She was such a wonderful person with a bubbly laugh! I also met her a few times away from school. She was so caring and compassionate. The world has lost a beautiful lady! Peace and prayers to her family 🙏.

I could never say enough words in this world that could tell you how much Theresa meant to me!

Theresa told me I just want people to remember me by being a kind person that just wanted to help where she could, when she could.

Theresa was one of the easiest people I could talk to and could talk to her about anything.

I enjoyed all my days with her and especially the kid stories she shared with us. I always told her she should write a children's book and in her last days she told me she should have! Thank you Theresa for all your love and time you gave to me!!! Love you forever more!!! Donna Weiss

Theresa,
I haven’t seen you much the past few years, but you always had a smile on your face and a funny story to tell. I will never forget your nickname “Chickie”. ..,,,,,(which you probably hated”). I can close my eyes and see the 4 Amigos; you, big Jude, Melissa and Heidi. Rest well my friend, we’re all feeling the loss of a truly wonderful soul.
