In Loving Memory of

Born February 28, 1923

Theresa or Tess as she loved to be called leaves behind two loving daughters, and a son. She also leaves behind nine grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.
Remember me in quiet days when raindrops whisper on your pane. But in your memories have no grief. Let just the joy we know remain. Remember me when evening stars look down on you with steadfast eyes. Remember me if once you wake to catch a glimpse of a red sunrise. And when your thoughts turn to me, know that i would not have you cry, but live for me and laugh for me. When you are happy, so am I. Remember an old joke we shared. Remember me when spring walks by. Think once of me when you are glad, and while you live, I shall not die.
Tess loved the warm weather in Florida but always struggled with leaving New York. Having family all over the country made it was difficult to get everyone in one room, but when they were Tess was a bright light that brought smiles to everyone. A wonderful teacher and amazing cook she drew the attention wherever she was, making friends and bringing people together. She loved the quiet days of bingo but also the late nights with a little scotch, always the life of the party. Today we mourn for her passing but more so we celebrate her life. She would want us to smile today and remember that she will always be looking down on us. God Bless.
