Theresa Rocker Obituary

She was born on May 22nd, 1949, in Carthage, New York, the daughter of the late Edgar F. & Margaret E. (Abrams) Countryman. She graduated from Carthage Central School District in 1967.

On July 15, 1967, she married the love of her life, Jimmy A.

She was employed at a variety of places, Lollies Manufacturing in Herrings, NY as a sewing machine operator; Braman’s sawmill, and lastly Crown Zellerbach in Carthage until she retired due to an injury.

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.

Survivors include her children, Renee King of Carthage; Darlene Rocker Shultz of South Carolina; Jimmy Rocker Jr. of Watertown; and Carla (Brian McGowan) of Moses Lake, WA; her grandchildren, Cheyenne, Destiny, Zyna, Dakota, Hailey and Kylee; her great-grandchildren, Scarlett, Walter, Aeila, Paisley, Leonidas and Kalista and Emberlynn.
