She met her late husband of 52 years, Ronald J Heyes, at a local dance and they enjoyed showing off their moves at gatherings.

Theresa is fondly remembered by her sister Shirley E. Messier of Bluffton, SC, her two nieces Lynn D. Hutchinson of Lambertville, NJ, and Christine A. Messier of San Diego, CA, and a nephew, Douglas M. Messier of Mojave, CA.

My sincerest condolences on the passing of Theresa. Her husband, Ronnie, was my godfather. They were always present at my grandparents house in Fairhaven for the holidays. My mother was Florence (Haslam) Rocha was a first cousin of Ron. They were such a nice couple.
I last saw Terry at Ron's wake at Rock Funeral Home.
Again, my sympathies.
