She lived in Wrenshall with her husband and four children before moving to Duluth, where she has resided for over 40 years, working at St. Mary’s Hospital and attending services as a member of Holy Family Catholic Church. Theresa enjoyed gardening, sewing and baking, and most of all spending time with her family. She dedicated most of her life caring for her family, which is what brought her the most joy.
