Teresa was an avid reader, enjoyed completing word searches, attending bible study, listening music, her favorite singer was Selena. Teresa loved playing Uno and Go Fish with her great-nieces and nephews. She was very competitive, and despised her losses as much as she enjoyed her occasional victories.

Teresa always had a smile on her face, it would shine thru during the toughest of times. Teresa will be missed.
