Shared over 60 years of nursing experiences with me after retiring from her beloved, Pine Acres Assisted Living Facility. Experiences that will remain with me as a person and nurse.
When it comes to gardening, l have a black thumb! l was given an orchid from a niece for my Birthday. The orchid demise was apparent after only a couple of months, despite the constant care l was providing. She fostered my dying orchid for over a year, and labeled the Orchid, my little girl. Meanwhile , while visits to my “little girl” Orchid, l would bring a resident from Pine Acres for a very special loving visit. Theresa as a good foster, would teach me how to care for the delicate Orchid.
Theresa, shared so much with me, helping me grow as a nurse and changing my gardening from a black thumb to a very pale green thumb. l will allow her to rest for awhile as a special angel, then pray for her guidance, caring for our patients and to transform my very pale green thumb to a thumb comparable to hers, VIBRANT GREEN !
With All My Love,

Our Women's Faith Sharing group celebrated Theresa's 85th birthday in July. We will miss her bright smile and her warm, quiet presence. And when we remember her, we will always call to mind her words of wisdom and smile because Theresa was always "too blessed to be stressed." Rest in peace, dear friend.
