Theresa worked at the Willard Facility as a nurse after obtaining her education. Upon her retirement and the loss of her husband, she found ways to enjoy life while bringing support and joy to others. She became involved with a widows & widowers support group; Theresa also volunteered at the Arnot Ogden Hospital in Elmira as well as The Samuel Clemens Center. She was creative, and belonged to the Arnot Mall’s Senior Art Center where she created art starting in the early 1990’s. She greatly enjoyed her painting, was an avid reader, and attended bible study groups regularly. Theresa has rejoined Matthew after many years apart but will be greatly missed as fondly remembered a compassionate and loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
