Teresa is fondly remembered by her family for her generosity, sense of humor and competitive spirit. She regularly hosted family gatherings and we all wish to thank her for the close knit family that she and Francis created. She was an avid Yankees fan. She loved all sports and regularly attended family ball games. She had an uncanny ability to win at cards, bingo, horse racing, scratchoffs and croquet. We will all miss her great sense of humor and her dedication to her family.
The family would like to send their sincerest thanks to the staff at Park Manor for their exemplary care of Teresa.
Services are private and at the convenience of the family. Interment will be at the Woodlawn Cemetery, 5468 Route 9W, Newburgh.
