Theresa Veronica Hosbrook, age 96 of Greenville, Ohio passed away peacefully at 3:46 PM on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at the Village Green Nursing Home, Greenville, Ohio. Born in Malden, Massachusetts on October 22, 1925 she was one of 13 children to the late William & Josephine (Gaudette) Powell. Theresa had attended the Malden Girls School and Immaculate Conception High School in Massachusetts. She had worked at a coffee shop in downtown Boston, and while working, she met her husband, Basil. He was on naval leave in the Boston Naval Shipyard, and went to the coffee shop each day and he played the same love song every day for her attention. They fell in love and got married on August 4, 1945. After they married, Theresa moved to Arcanum, Ohio to help take care of his parents while he was away on active duty during WWII. Once Basil returned home, they settled in, and had 4 daughters, Gloria, Diana, Christine and Carol.

She was a member of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church; American Legion # 140; lifetime member of the VFW # 7262 and member of the D.E.S.A. She was a very patriotic lady, and was proud of her country and military, especially the Navy. Theresa enjoyed playing cards with other couples and her family; reading books; watching game shows and playing bingo. In her free time you could find her attending her grandchildren’s events, watching the New England Patriots and Ohio State Buckeyes football games; and attending the Greenville High School sporting events.
