Theresa was passionate about being a Grandmother to Dante and truly adored and spoiled him.

When she wasn’t filling her home with warmth and kindness for all, she could be found making delicious meals, barbeques, and baked goods in her kitchen, she also loved making quilts and crafts and giving them to her loved ones.
