    Theresa was one of the strongest people I’ve ever known. Theresa was able to be there as needed for her late husband, Donald’s, numerous surgeries and recuperation, lovingly caring for her children all the while holding down a full-time responsible position in Prentice Hall/Pearson’s credit department. An amazing examples of Theresa’s way was the Sunday I stopped at Shoprite in Northvale late winter, 2016. Theresa was headed to the noon Mass after picking up a couple of items, while I was stopping in after having attended the 10 o’clock Mass. Theresa, who I hadn’t seen since I retired in 2013, called to me in her usual upbeat, friendly manner. Knew immediately who was speaking. Theresa asked me how retirement was and noted that I had purchased some dog food and asked about Mooks by name. I explained that I now had a new puppy and Theresa was sorry for my loss but happy that I had another dog and let me speak a bit about my Shadow. Then, Theresa told me of her health issues and the surgery that was to take place shortly after we spoke. She also told me of another type of cancer that was also found of which she was more concerned. But never during our conversation that day, or any others after did Theresa lose her optimism, her faith and the final testimony to Theresa was her checking herself out of hospice as she didn’t want to be medicated and unable to speak with her friends and family. Theresa and Donald are now together and looking lovingly over their three dear children and the woman who was always so very kind and caring of her daughter, Margaret, and all her loved ones who will miss her beautiful smile and all the sunshine she brought to all of us who had the privilege to know her. Theresa, you are now at peace and we’ll take some small comfort in that…for now.
