I will always be grateful for the kindness Theresa showed towards me when I was associate pastor at Cathedral from 1973-75 and she was one of our cooks. She had a great sense of humor, and was a wonderful dynamic duo with Betty Throckmorton. Theresa taught me to listen to Jack Carney on KMOX radio. Theresa made the most delicious Rum cake I've ever eaten! She was full of life, and now she will have the fullness of life for all eternity. I treasure the memories.

Bob: My condolences to you. Teresa sang in the choir at my first Mass following ordination in June, 1971. Teresa reminded me of that often when I celebrated Mass at St. Paul Home. That was apparently an honor for her. It was an honor to share the Eucharist with her in these last months of her earthly life. May she now live in peace and joy with the Risen Christ for all eternity. Prayers for Teresa and for you.....

Many great and fond memories with Theresa and Bob at your Christmas parties. "Mother Theresa" was so fun to talk to and drink with! She had to be a great mother to keep Gregory the Great between the lines! :) Hugs to the family and a toast to a great woman, a great life, and great memories! Love from the Fields.
