    My condolences to her family

  • Theresa was my mother’s roommate at Manor Care from late 2018 till her passing in late 2020. Although I saw my mom every day, Theresa was a huge blessing in letting me know about things that happened when I wasn’t there. This became even more important during Covid when we couldn’t visit. I am eternally grateful to Theresa for the care and concern she showed toward my mother. And to me, by keeping me informed. What a good, kind heart she had!! I was also always impressed by Theresa’s ability to keep an optimistic outlook despite the health problems that plagued her – she was amazing! I’m sad that she’s gone but happy that her spirit is finally free to fly like the angel that she is. Theresa was a real blessing to everyone who knew her!

  • From the gals at pike creek. We miss you everyday. Especially all the laughs, gossip, and just also being there for all of us. When every we needed you❤️ We miss you everyday. Thanks for everything you do for us. We love and miss you!
