She is preceded in death by her eight siblings. She was raised in Columbus' Flytown district, graduated with honors from Central High School, and immediately began her career in the service of the state and federal government agencies, including the Ohio Industrial Commission, Internal Revenue Service, Veterans Administration, and Social Security Administration.

She is survived by her son, David (Mary Ellen) of Oregon; three granddaughters, Molly (Brian) Bradley, Erin (Erik) Stone and Megan (Paul) Balmforth; sister-in-law, Ruth Bianco, as well as numerous nieces and nephews spanning four generations. Theresa was a charter member of St. Christophper Roman Catholic parish (1948) and served as a volunteer there and at the Ohio Department of Mental Health (Twin Valley Behavioral Health Care) for many years. She is remembered for her quick wit, wise sayings, independent spirit, immense generosity, keen eye for bargain, and culinary skills. She wore her sense of humor on her sleeve and never let a good deed go un-noticed.

Her son wishes to thank all the staff at St. Christopher's, Westminster Thurber, and Griswold Home Care for their unfailing devotion and dedication to the spiritual and physical well-being of his mother. In the words of many, Theresa was a "legend." Funeral arrangements entrusted with the JOHN QUINT TREBONI FUNERAL HOME, 1177 West Fifth Avenue, Columbus. Condolences may be sent via www.johnquint.com.
