    Theresa was my neighbor who I’ve known for all of my life. She’s like a mom to me, and we enjoyed some fun times together. You will be missed, but you will always be in my heart. Enjoy Paradise Theresa, and all those you’ve been missing for so long!

    Dear Family,
    We are so very sorry for the loss of someone so near and dear to your hearts. We will remember her feisty smile and sense of humor—we shared many good times with her at St. Francis—I’m sure she’s doing her best to keep the angels in heaven in line. May the wonderful memories you cherish keep her spirit alive and, in time, give you peace.
    God Bless, Rich and Leona Juby

    Theresa & I have been more than friends for over 40 years. She was like a mother to me. We spent many happy and sometime sad days recalling what our lives held over the years. She had a wonderful look out on life and had a wicked sense of humor. I will miss her terribly. She was blessed to have had a wonderful family who took care of her and was never lonely because one or the other of her children was always checking to see if she needed anything. She was an amazing woman and I always looked up to her. God bless her & her family always. I will miss you always.

    Miss you every day Mama T. You are in my heart, body and soul. I imagine you dancing with your husband, playing and laughing with your relatives and always winning at scratch-offs and the lottery. You and I had a special bond, friendship, and I am truly blessed you let me into your world. You were a strong, independent woman who would give their own shirt off their back to help someone in need. You were very wise and I appreciate your lessons. You will always hold a very special place in my heart forever. Until we meet again, I love you Mama T!
