Teresa loved spending as much time as possible with her family. She was very active in her church, taught religion and served as a Eucharistic Minister. Teresa was a member of her local VFW for over 50 years, and always was involved in community events and efforts.
Teresa was loved and respected by all and was considered the matriarch of the family. Her family and friends will always remember her as kind, loving, giving, and supportive. She would encourage everyone to pursue their goals and happiness in life. We will always treasure her handmade crochet and knitted gifts. Teresa will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
