Theresa is also survived by many nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved dearly. Theresa was a fun-loving, outgoing people person. She would never give up the opportunity to have that "nice" cup of coffee at a neighbors' house. Theresa was a school aid at P.S. 60 in Queens, N.Y. where she retired from after 40 years. The staff and children were among the many people that loved her. Theresa was the first one to offer a helping hand to whoever needed it and if she couldn't help, she would find someone who could. Theresa was loved by all.
