  1. Dear Uncle Ed, I know you probably aren’t aware of Auntie Theresa’s passing, but please know that our prayers are with you and her family. We pray for the Lords comfort at this very difficult time. We love you..Michele, Paul and Boys

  2. With Sincere Sympathy, Fond Memories of a sweet person. Class of 1947, Worthington Hooker School. We were young and gay,thank you for the memories.

  3. When I think of Aunt Theresa, I foundly remember the song she created when I was 3 years old, so I could spell her name (T H E R E S A do te la so fa me ra), sleeping over her and Uncle Eddie’s house on Willow Street when they would tease me about staying in the big city, and the love she showed me. To this very day she was the only person who could get me to drink milk or eat lamb. Thereas was a kind woman who was always the first one to be available to assist anyone in need. She came to Masonic daily to attend to Eddie’s needs, putting her own aside, as this was Theresa. She was planning on getting a dog when she returned home from the hospital and made preperations by having a fence put up in her yard. I hope she has a dog by her side now as she looks below on us all. . Always parting with a smile, an I love you, and a God Bless you. Thank you for the lessons you taught me. Rest in peace. You are already missed. Love Lenore

  4. To The Family Of Theresa, We met Theresa a short time ago at Masonic Home on 2 Wooster when Ed arrived as a resident. Our father has been a resident for almost 4 years. Teresa was a very loving and dedicated wife, who spent alot of time on a daily basis caring for Ed and also helping out with other residents and cleaning up after meals. We are very sad to hear of her passing, our sympathy and prayers go out to all of you. We will miss Theresa, she was truly a wonderful person. We see Ed daily when we visit our father and talk with him, he is a great guy who was lucky to have a wife like Theresa. Sincerely, Susan & Nancy Madonna
