 Theresa was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She loved being a mother and nana to not only her biological children but whoever needed one. Family and friends were important to her, and she was always ready to share a cup of coffee with anyone who came to visit. She enjoyed listening to music and was a long-time member of the Black River Valley Fiddlers.
