Theresa taught me the phrase “that’s a bunch of bull” when I was about 7 (leading me to have my mouth washed out with soap the same day) and that’s a good way to remember her. She had a great laugh, and a great spirit of generosity, but no room for nonsense, much like her mother. She was a most loyal and beloved family member.

Theresa was one of a kind. She loved nearly everyone she met. Once she knew you she never forgot you. We celebrated many birthdays with her and Bob and always a great sense of humor! I worked with Theresa at ING and we became very close buddies. She was excellent with tools and taught me so much. Her energy was tireless. I will miss you T.P (as I called her) Well done Theresea, God smiled as you joined him.

We were on a bus trip with Theresa and Robert. She was such a good person who always looked out for her brother. May she rest in peace!

She was a hard working woman who loved her brothers, Jim, Kenny and Bobby. She always was nice and kind to me and I can't remember her ever without a bright smile on her face.

Theresa is a person who should be in the front row in heaven. I remember her picking up a bail of hay one in each hand and throwing them on the hay wagon. My brother and I together trying to get one up on the wagon. Wonderful lady!

Theresa is one of the most amazing individuals I have ever met! I will miss her incredible hugs and her beautiful soul. She made this world a better place and is now looking over us from the heavens above. My condolences to her family on the loss of their loved one.
