Theresa was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her delicious Polish food which she delighted in cooking for her family, and her famous potato salad.  She was a talented artist and also gifted at playing the guitar.  She enjoyed puzzles, working crosswords, and travelling with her sister and best friend.  The song “Blue Skies” will never be able to be heard without thinking of our beloved Theresa.
