Theresa was known for the excellent meals she prepared and the treats she baked. You could always count on the refrigerator being stocked to maximum capacity at all times. Her two favorite holidays were Halloween and Christmas. She especially loved Halloween and went to the extreme with her abundance of decorations, especially pumpkins. At Christmas time she loved to watch her favorite movie "The Night Before Christmas". Theresa loved to be around the water and enjoyed sailing. She took pride in her garden and was an avid antique collector.

Theresa had a servant's heart. Her career in nursing was a true calling, she loved the work she did and all of the patients she cared for. Family was most important to Theresa. She always made time for her grandchildren and cherished times spent together.
