Theresa graduated from North Kansas City High School in 1958 and then attended 1 semester of college at CMSU in Warrensburg, MO. After that, she immediately went to work at Commerce Bank of Kansas City in their lock box department as a Quality Control Clerk where she retired after 35 years in January of 1995. During that time, she also worked several part-time jobs in the restaurant industry, Ponderosa and Golden Corral, in order to support and educate her son, Ronald.

After retirement, she continued to work as a pre-school teacher for Jay’s Learning and Spectrum Day Care Centers. Her work as a young child care provider was something she truly enjoyed and inspired many young minds.

In 2015, she moved to Cross Keys Retirement Community in Argentine, Kansas. During her time there, she enjoyed all the friendships she made.

In October, 2019, after living in Kansas City, MO for 79 years, she moved to St. Mary’s to be closer to her family. There, she had touched so many people with her great smile and personality along with her stories of how proud she was of her family. She so enjoyed playing bingo every day and partaking in all the yummy refreshments.

Theresa was a parishioner of St. Charles Borromeo Parish for more than 55 years. She was preceded in death by her parents, Cecilia and Henry Gabel, her brother, Thomas J. Gabel, and her husband of 40 years, Robert J. Wolkey. She is survived by her son, Ronald Eugene Wolkey (Colleen) and 2 grandsons, Brandon Michael Wolkey and Jose Dario Hernandez (J.J.). Theresa was beloved and will be missed by her brother and sister-in-laws, nieces, and nephews and extended family.

When I first moved to KC went to work at Commerce Bank where I met Bob and Theresa. In those days everyone brought their lunch so we all ate to-
gether and had a barrel of fun. They
Were planning on building the house in Northhaven where many years laster my husband and I built. Used to run into them occassionally. They were both great people and it was an honor to know them . in our wedding gift from them was a set of measuring spoons which to this day I still use and I always
Think of them when I use them
My blessings to you and your family
Robbie. So glad to know she had grand-
Children which I know she loved with
All her heart. Theresa is a shining star in heaven. You were fortunate to have her
As your mother.
