A dedicated wife and mother, Teresa raised her 7 children all of whom adored her.
She was an excellent seamstress who loved to crochet, needlepoint, and knit. She was especially known for her fine crocheted baby blanket and sweater sets
most often used for ceremonial Christening's! Her hand created Christmas Towels and potholders were always a welcome gift!
Teresa was an excellent cook who enjoyed gatherings surrounded by family and friends. No one ever left hungry!
The family spent time together playing Pinochle, Canasta, Pokeno, board games and doing puzzles. She always found a way to turn these games into "valuable lessons learned".
She very much enjoyed going on Casino & Bingo Bus trips with her friends, and the occasional cruise on Lake George.

and Maria (Robert) Schreifels. Also, her precious 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.
