Just learned of Theresa’s passing. She was a loving, kind woman, and a wonderful friend to my Mom, Julie, since their childhood. I’m sure Momwas happy to be reunited with her friend Terry in Heaven. Sincere sympathy for your loss to Leo and all her family. Wish I could have been in N.H. to bring her yellow rose. Love, Madeleine

I fondly remember Theresa (and one of her daughters... Karen, I think) from my days working at Green Ridge back as a teenager. Sincere condolences to her friends and family on the loss of such a sweet / wonderful lady... even after all these years, her exceptional kindness really left a memorable impression on me.

I would not want to be best friends with anyone else. I loved Theresa so dearly even though I only knew her for such a short amount of time. She will be missed and I will forever count as a blessing the fact that I got to be her caretaker.

She was a great friend and Marie McIntyre's niece and Marie loved her company. She will be deeply missed by everyone she met. We will always remember the Christmas Parties at Ledgewood Bay with my mom Marie and Theresa and Leo.
