Teresa was a faithful homemaker for many years. Afterwards she worked for Revlon Corporation and later Johnson & Johnson.

She loved giving to her many grand and great-grandchildren and beamed with pride at their many accomplishments. She loved having weekly dinners with her best friend, Carol Garrett. She met for lively gatherings with her brothers and sisters in Southern Georgia on many happy occasions.

Taylor (Jerri) and Larry Taylor, children James Kelley, Jr. (Edie), Steve Kelley, David Kelley (Nancy), Kimberly Bitcon (Rowland), Ann Kelley, Timothy Kelley (Ilona), Cliff Kelley, grandchildren Laurie Kelley, Doug Kelley (Bridgett), Sarah Kelley, Natalie Poma (Antonino), Nathan Bitcon, Bryan Kelley, William Kelley, Joshua Kelley, Garrett Kelley, Brandon Kelley, Patrick Kelley, Casey Kelley, great-grandchildren Taylor, Carter,Caylin, Mason and Celesta Kelley.
