Theresa was such a vibrant soul. Always bringing joy to any gathering. Our class had a reunion few years ago and Theresa had us all in stiches! Such fond memories.....a life gone way to soon.

To Theresa’s family,
I was so sad to hear about Theresa’s passing and I know she will be missed deeply.
I had the privilege of being her supervisor during her time in Portland. She always had a smile and we had some meaningful conversations along with some great laughs.
Rest in Peace, Theresa❤️

Theresa~I just heard of your passing yesterday, and I am so deeply pained by this. I remember when I was PDX based, and we flew a trip together. What a great Soul you are, and it was a new brilliant friendship that I was elated about.

I wish you eternal bliss, peace and joy.

Your family is so lucky to have been blessed by your presence.

With hugs lots of love and aloha...

I had the pleasure of working with Theresa on a Cabo layover. We had dinner together and I remember feeling so comfortable with her. The conversation just flowed. I remember thinking how beautiful she was in person and in spirit. I just passed her again at the employee bus thinking I was so happy to see her again a few months ago.
May you Rest In Peace 💓

Dear Diane & family,
(I got your name from a Facebook post..forgive me if it is incorrect.)

My name is Maureen Cervantes, a Seattle based Flight Attendant. Theresa knew me as Maureen Moffatt (I got married a few years ago.)

I’m so very saddened to hear of Theresa’s passing...actually I’m heartbroken.
We were classmates in Initial training at Alaska Airlines. There were over forty people in our class & somehow we found each other right away...and bonded right away!

Right away, she got me laughing & I was hooked into knowing I found a good friend.
For our first base assignment, we shared a crash pad in Anchorage. It was the end of June 2006 when we moved there & during that time, the sun never sets in Alaska. I will never forget the late night & well into early morning talking & snacking & laughing.

Even though she got her Portland base transfer right away, every year we tried to do our recurrent training together...back then when classes were only in Seattle.

We flew a couple of trips together but they were few & far between. The last layover we did was in Orlando where we shared a couple glasses of wine & caught up with our lives.
I regret that it has been a few years since we’ve talked but I miss her just the same. Her beautiful soul & smile, her infectious laugh & quick wit...I will always miss her.

I’m so very sorry for your loss, Diane and that of your family & her close friends.

My prayers & condolences to you all💔🙏
