Teresa had a special bond with her Brothers and Sisters, and many great memories with more than 50 Nieces and Nephews and Grand-Nieces and -Nephews that are too many to count.
Teresa will always be remembered for the love she had for pets, helping to care for many adopted furry friends.
Teresa was very generous to many charities that were dear to her heart.
Our Dear Mom, Grandma, Sister and Aunt will be greatly missed by all.
