It was always a treat to go to lunch with or simply visit with Theresa. Gifted with a great sense of humor and a generous nature is how I'll remember her.

Therese had a gentle, nurturing nature that filled the void for me when my mother, her friend, Georgette passed away 15 years ago. I treasure all the memories and lengthy phone calls we had, especially when she had jokes or funny stories. I was so blessed to have her in my life and she will always hold a very special place in my heart and will be missed so, so much.

We pray for her family that the peace of God will surround you during this time of sorrow.
