Teresa was a kind and gentle soul who was all about family. She was the keeper of traditions and family history. She especially loved Christmas with all the baking and decorating! She’d fill the house with all types of music either from her extensive collection or by playing the organ. She enjoyed taking pictures of family and friends, as well as on her nature walks or just around town. She spent many summer vacations at Point Pleasant Beach.
Teresa was a truly special individual whose memory will be cherished by all who knew and loved her.
She was a cherished sister to Joseph and Judy Messineo, Mary and Denis McGovern and Michael and Jeanne Messineo. She truly loved her nephews Christopher, Stephen and Mark and her niece Jillian.
