Her service to the medical field as the first 4th floor ward clerk with Lafayette General Medical Center and her continued service in the nursing field brought her and the patients she helped during their time of need great joy. Theresa’s hobbies were sewing, crafting, and spending time with family and friends. Her favorite time of the year was Thanksgiving and Christmas because the house was always full of decorations and the family would gather to celebrate the holidays. A loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, Theresa will be truly and deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her.
