Theresa’s hobbies included reading, crossword puzzles and working in her yard. She enjoyed all sports and enjoyed attending her son’s and grandson’s football, wrestling, basketball and baseball events. Her Religion, Family and Friends were very important to her as well as her cats Kelly and Sammy. We were so blessed to have her with us for so many years and we will miss her sweet, kind, gentle, loving, and caring presence in our lives. She would want us to say, “God Bless You” as that is how she always ended every conversation.
