Theresa was a life-long knitter and had a master hand at making socks. She was a fan of the opera and loved to cook. Theresa was firm in her opinions and had quite a few, as many of us discovered. Please fondly remember those wise words and join us with loving thoughts and generous prayer as we celebrate her life.
The family would like to thank the great people of Southern Care Hospice, family, and friends that offered their love and enduring support during this challenging chapter of our journey.
There will be a private family service. Theresa will be returned to St. Louis, interred alongside her parents.
